Who knew fudge could be fruity—AND nutritious?! Acai is low in sugar, loaded with healthy antioxidants, and makes this fudge an eye-catching purple color. It’s creamy, light, and SO easy to make with just 4 simple ingredients! The perfect summertime treat to cool down on hot days.
1 cup coconut cream
1 cup frozen acai puree, unsweetened (thawed completely)

Once melted into a liquid, add thawed acai, lemon zest, and maple syrup.
Remove from heat and transfer mixture into a loaf pan, lined with foil or parchment. Freeze for 2-4 hours, until firm.
