Who doesn’t love fudge?

I used to love my aunt’s fudge. It was fudge made in heaven. Hers had a particular flavor that was unique to only her fudge. I could never put my finger on what it was, but there was a taste and texture that hers had that no other fudge had.

This fudge was a treat for me. My mom didn’t make or buy fudge. I was required to get my fill of fudge whenever she brought some over or when she hosted a family gathering.

The best thing about her fudge? It had marshamallows in it.

I know. YUM.

Since becoming healthier, my days of fudge are now gone. Perhaps I’ll make my own true fudge recipe in the future. But until then, this deep fudge smoothie satisfies all of my fudgey, chocolately cravings.

Don’t be surprised by how sweet and filling this smoothie is. It is supposed to be a fudge smoothie after all.

Recipe:

If you are craving something chocolatey and sweet, don’t grab that candy bar. Make yourself a filling Deep Fudge Smoothie. It’s more satisfying and nutritious than a piece of chocolate and won’t give you a stomach ache either.
