Dessert Lately- Three Ingredient Fudge

 

Oh yes, dessert lately is right. I’ve pretty much had this same dessert for seven days straight now and I don’t see anything changing in the near future. Well, except for Sunday after the Carlsbad Marathon. I may just have to splurge a little then. He he!

This is supposed to be my What I Ate Wednesday post for my friend Jenn’s link up party she hosts every week. It was about 9:00pm last night when I sat down with the exact same dinner as last night (yes, those same enchiladas) that I realized the only two pictures I took all day of food were this one I posted on Facebook of my massive bowl of cold oats (my go to oatmeal bowl cold), chia berry jam and SunButter.

oats SB chia jam

and this one of my afternoon STUFT Salted Caramel Mocha.

Oopsies.

But…… I’m going to invite myself to the party anyway because I have been eating a heck of a lot of this low calorie, low fat, dark rich chocolate, peanut buttery fudge.

Smile

My friend Sarena told me about this amazing fudge frosting she’s been making at her house. She even wrote a post on it today along with a delicious sounding peanut butter oat cake that I “pinned” on Pinterest.

Her little fudge creation inspired me to come up with this little beauty. It’s different from my other fudge recipes (Oh Fudge and Chocolate Fudge Pie) because it doesn’t have the coconut butter and saves about 100 or so calories.

Three Ingredient Dark Chocolate Peanut Buttery Fudge

serves one mama (trying to watch her sugar intake before a big race)

 

1/2 ripe banana, fresh or frozen (Thaw a little if frozen)

2 tablespoons PB2 (12 grams)

2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder (10 grams)

 

Directions:

Mix the ingredients together with a fork or in a Magic Bullet.

Pour into a bowl or dish. Refrigerate or freeze. (If you can wait that long, if not, eat as is).

That all!

IMG_8474

You get about 130 calories of this rich goodness.

Best dessert ever!

Not only is it the best because it’s easy and low in calories, but the possibilities (preparation and consumption) are endless.

The necessary ingredients stay the same. A half of a banana (you can even use a whole one if you’re really feeling like it) and these two amazing products.

IMG_8458

I get my favorite cocoa powder on Amazon (just click on the link) and I order PB2 online from Bell Plantation.

Ready for all the possibilities?

 

First of all you can use a fresh banana or a frozen one. Whatever you happen to have on hand.

IMG_8460

If I use a frozen one I usually microwave it a little first so it’s easier to blend.

IMG_8462

You can measure the ingredients with a tablespoon or just use a small kitchen scale like this one I bought on Amazon (I use it all the time).

IMG_8463IMG_8465

Then you can use a blender or food processor (I use my Magic Bullet- which is on sale at Costco until the end of the month for $35).

IMG_8467IMG_8332

Or if you’re pressed for time (or don’t want to do extra dishes which is usually the case for me), you can just mix it all with a fork.

IMG_8516IMG_8517

It’s not as pretty, but when you taste it you really won’t care.

 

From here you can eat as is, refrigerate and eat as a pudding, use as a frosting or freeze it.

My favorite way is to freeze it for a couple hours

IMG_8524

and then eat it with my cool tea spoon.

IMG_8525

Last night I even topped it with a crumbled chocolate Vitamuffin.

IMG_8526

Um, yeah.

If you want to impress some people (or try to take some cool pictures) you can pour it in a cute little tart dish

IMG_8468

press it down with wax paper

IMG_8470IMG_8471

freeze it for at least a couple of hours and then pop it out to make a small fudge pie.

IMG_8472IMG_8473IMG_8479

You can even cut it into pieces so it’s like a frozen dark chocolate candy bar.

IMG_8493

Be careful if you do that though because it melts pretty quickly.

Smile

Okay, have you seen enough of this fudge?

Me either. Here’s one more.

IMG_8475

Ha ha ha!

Now go make this and tell me what you think.

I’m off to get ready for another “date”.

If I’m missing in action for the next day or so it’s only because I’m resting and trying to be smart about getting sleep before my marathon this weekend.

I’ll still be on Facebook and Twitter with some “club” updates with “my boyfriend” though.

Hmm…. what to ask him today……

Email me your Flat Kitty pantry pictures and/or anything you want to share for Friday’s post.

PS- I have a fun giveaway coming up soon that I’m super excited about! Yay!

Have a good one!

    I am SO making this! My store was out of bananas last night (what the heck) so I may need to go to a different one today!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh Jody- it’s addicting!!! I love it because it’s so rich that it satisfies my cravings. :) Can’t wait for you to try it! PS- your store was out of bananas? That’s just silly. :)

  2. 2

    This looks awesome, I have a new tab open now to order some PB2 so I can make some for myself. =)

  3. 3

    I am wishing you much luck this weekend for your race, and a huge THANK YOU for that fudge. My goodness does it look delicious and I love that it is a single serving.

    • 3.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Thanks Rachel! Oh man, I have to do things single serving around here otherwise I’m in trouble. I’m not good with the whole moderation thing so I have to come up with stuff like this. I love it! I actually want it now for breakfast. ha ha! Let me know what you think!

    Ashley says:

    I love the name of your blog! And I would really enjoy that fudge, riiiight now. Yes, at 9am. :)

  5. 5

    You and I need to have a dessert party! That sounds so good! I love that you freeze it. YUM! Have fun with our boyfriend and rest up! You will definitely need it!

  6. 6

    I can’t wait to try this one! There’s no better combo that chocolate, PB, and banana! You are my dessert hero.

    Amy Zirkle says:

    This looks fantastic – and it prompted me to finally treat myself to a Magic Bullet – I think I may just have to try the fork method for now :)

    Thank you so much for sharing this

    Jenny says:

    yay.. it’s tomorrow :) this was totally worth the wait. Definitely making this (the fork version. Dirty dishes make me anxious haha) and I think I’ll sub some PB for the PB2.. just ’cause :)

    • 8.1
      Jenny says:

      p.s. how long do you recommend refrigerating for to eat in “pudding form”. Have you tried it without refrigerating? how does that taste? I kind of want it like.. right now haha. Don’t feel like waiting!

      • STUFT Mama says:

        Oh and….. sometimes no refridgeration is required. I’ve been know to lick the bowl clean seconds after making it. Shhh… just between you and me of course. Ha ha!

    • 8.2
      STUFT Mama says:

      Jenny- Ha ha! And now it’s the day after tomorrow and I’m in withdrawals because I went one whole day without having this. I think I might have a problem. PS- dirty dished make me anxious too, but somehow they’re always in my sink. Go figure.

    SO making this!! Just need my green bananas to ripen up a bit! I’ll eat anything with chocolate in the title!

    • 9.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I feel like I’m always waiting for my bananas to ripen up. Then they all ripen at the same time. They should get their act together. How was subbing boot camp? Thought of you the other night.

  10. 10

    I need to find some of that PB2! I look everywhere but I just don’t think it is widely available in Canada, or at least in my neck of the woods. I should really check into ordering some online but I’m a little scared of what shipping will be :) Would it work with regular peanut butter?

  11. 11

    What a delicious idea! Funny though…when I went to buy a second jar of PB2 at the store where I worked in Texas, I debated about buying the chocolate version, and said, “Oh, Sarah, you can just mix that with cocoa powder and have the same thing!” Yet, have I ever done it? Of course not.

    Inspiration!

    • 11.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I’ve had the same debate when ordering online. The chocolate version is pretty much just with cocoa powder mixed in. Try it! It’s fun! :) PS- I love Texas and secretly want to move there.

  12. 12

    you never cease to amaze me with your amazing healthified desserts! this one sounds amazing, and i can’t wait to try it out! i really need to order some PB2 pronto… or do you know if a specialty store like whole foods sells it?

  13. 13

    Ohhh nice! I bought that peanutbutter powder stuff a couple of weeks ago and still haven’t used it!! Now I have a sweet recipe to use..thanks!! :-)

    Katie says:

    Gah, that looks amazing!! Except…can you taste the banana? I kind of hate them.

    • 14.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I love how you saw “gah”. :) Oh… and I HAVE to say that I love the grasshopper move you did for TT. I want to try that one.
      So.. banana- yes you can taste it a little. It’s so rich and chocolatey though that you might not notice. I say it’s worth a shot. I’ve subbed in applesauce before and pumpkin, but the consistency isn’t the same. And that is just bananas that you hate bananas. :)

  15. 15

    Fantastic – passing this one along to my sis who a) likes chocolate and b) is gluten free so this would be a fab dessert for her.

  16. 16
    Annette Bailey says:

    I made it… 2 recipes and ate the whole thing. It was really good but would not suggest blending it in a normal blender– it stuck to the bottom and was a mess. I will make it with just a fork next time. So easy and yummy.. Thanks!

    • 16.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh yeah, normal blenders don’t quite work well with this. Even in the Magic Bullet it gets a little tricky sometimes. Plus I’m usually licking the blade which I’m sure is not safe. :) Fork it! He he!

    Jenn Murphy says:

    So want to make this! But what do you think of the cocoa PB2?

    • 17.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Jenn- it’s pretty much regular PB2 mixed with cocoa powder so I just make my own by combining the two. :) Plus- dark chocolate powder is better anyway. :) Are you ever going to call me back????? :) Just kidding! Love you!

  18. 18

    Mmmmm, this sounds magically delicious!! I need to pick up some bananas STAT… the only ingredient I don’t have!! :)

    Becca says:

    Hey Stuft Mama!
    This was such a great idea, and I can’t wait to try it this weekend. I didn’t have banana’s on hand so I used one cup of raspberries (60 calories) two TB of Dark Ch. Coca power (20 calories) and 1 tsp of Steveia. It’s such a great dessert and only 80 calories!!! Thanks again for another great blog. :)

    • 19.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Hi Becca! Oh… rasberries. That is a great idea. I love any desserts that are rich and have little calories. Thanks for sharing. Now if I only had rasberries…….. :)

  20. 20

    Oh that’s a fun little recipe. My PB2 just arrived in the mail yesterday! I always have peanut flour but I’ve heard PB2 is tastier so I’m trying it out.

    • 20.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Yay for your arrival of you PB2 Sarah. You are going to love it (since you and I love all the same things and all). You can create all kinds of “whoopie” with that stuff. :) I’ve never tried just regular peanut flour. I might have to someday.

  21. 21

    Your marathon is coming up so quick!! And I <3 PB2 :)

    Laura says:

    I’ve made this twice already, the first time I froze it with sea salt and crushed almonds sprinkled on top, it was sooo good I licked the plate. This morning I kept it in “pudding form” and spread it on my waffle- decadent but amazingly healthy! Thank you so much for the delicious recipe it’s my new sweet tooth go to!

    • 22.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Laura- whoa- getting all fancy with almonds and sea salt. What a great idea. The most creative I’ve gotten is topping it with some sprinkles from that Trader Joe’s chocolate, sugar and coffee bean grinder. Oh and GREAT idea to spread it on a waffle!!!! I would like to come over for breakfast!

    Joanna says:

    I have been thinking about ordering PB2 for months! Ever since I first saw you mention it! BUT, this recipe did the trick! It’s been ordered, and I’m afraid it can’t possibly get here fast enough!!! ;o) Do you think I can make this with regular PB while I wait? or would that be too sticky?

    • 23.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      YOu can totally do it with regular instead. It just won’t have the same calorie info. Real peanut butter is more calories and fat (but really yummy). :) here’s a link to an original fudge post that might work. OR just sub in regular peanut butter for the PB2 in this one. SO glad you ordered it though. YOu’ll love the PB2. :) http://stuftmama.com/2011/08/23/oh-fudge/

    Jessica says:

    The berries on top of your oatmeal look amazing! I can only imagine how good that combo tasted!

  25. 25

    I’m pinning this! Now I just gotta go out and get some PB2 so I can make this bad boy! :)

  26. 26

    Hi there!!! Following your blog…love it !!! Wanted to give you some more info on powdered peanut butter..check out my website…My BettyLou’s Powdered peanut butter is made w/COCONUT ….Not real sugar like PB2….Let me know what you think!!!! And…it is YUMMO!!!!

    Erin says:

    I made this for the first time tonight. OMG! I didn’t think it could be as good as you described. It’s even better. The hardest part was eating only 1/2 since I made two servings. I ate half kind of chilled and froze the other half for tomorrow night. GREAT recipe!!

  28. 28
    kate says:

    I AM OBSESSED WITH PB2! I literally put it in EVERYTHING lol..smoothie, yogurt, oatmeal, bananas…and the combo with the heresy’s dark cocoa powder? oh dear don’t ever get me started! hahah …great post!!!

    Amy says:

    Jeni says:

    This fudge is AWESOME! Made it the minute I read it on your blog. Three ingredients, what’s not to love? Well nothing. It’s so good. Love your blog. Thanks for all the PB2 recipes. I’m hopelessly addicted to it. Used it every day. Great recipe! Thank you

  31. 31
    Kaycee says:

    this is such an ingenius creation!! i tried it today and i’m addicted. this is officially one of my favorite desserts <3 gonna try it with chocolate protein powder next time instead of cocoa to up the protein a bit!

    Tiffany says:

    I made this into a shake – I gave up sugar (except for fruit) for lent. I took the frozen banana, chocolate powder, and put almond milk and blended – it basically saved my life today so thank you for inspiring it :)

    Desiree says:

    I’m curious, does this have a banana-y taste at all? This looks delicious but I’m not a huge banana fan. Love your recipes!

    Todd says:

    I just made it and added a drop of mint extract. I wish I didn’t have to wait 2 hours to find out how it’ll taste out of the freezer :-)
