My kids loved the book Superfudge when they were younger. Now they enjoy this creation chock full of nutrient-dense food.
The ideal ingredient is cacao paste, the least processed of raw cacao products. Cacao paste is more expensive but when creating something like superfudge it can be worth it. Amazon offers a nice selection of cacao paste.
If cacao paste is not an option, raw cacao powder can easily be combined with coconut oil and/or cacao butter and is included as an option in this recipe.
What makes this combination a superfood? Butter oil is rich in essential fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). It contains what Dr. Weston Price termed the “X-factor.” (Read more about Dr. Price’s research especially as it relates to dental health here.)
Fermented cod liver oil is rich in vitamins A and D and works synergistically with raw butter oil.
Feel free to add other superfoods like camu camu or apricot kernel seeds for an extra boost.
*I like Green Pasture’s fermented cod liver oil. They offer a variety of flavors including orange, licorice and cinnamon. I prefer the orange flavor for this recipe.
