1. Three Ingredient Banana Fudge

This easy fudge recipe is a great entry-level option for those looking to get started with their fudge-making journey. It’s a delicious dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo, vegan option that you can make over and over again.

It’s also very useful if you’re the type of household to have a lot of leftovers ripened bananas because this is what you will be using. At only 187 calories per serving, this is the perfect small treat to enjoy after dinner or with a cup of coffee.

All you need are overripe bananas (the riper they are the sweeter the final product will be), smooth peanut butter for its texture and taste, and coconut oil that will maintain the consistency and structure of the fudge.

Coconut oil will also add to the already creamy and buttery texture so if you’re not used to cooking with it, buy some and you’ll probably never go back! If you decide to freeze some for later use, make sure to only let them thaw slightly, otherwise, they lose their firmness.

2. Chocolate Banana Fudge

This recipe will only take you 10 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook, and serves up to 24 so there’s plenty of opportunities to enjoy this one. This banana fudge would be the perfect treat for big parties, small to medium size gatherings, and the holiday season.

It’s made with fresh bananas, whole milk, granulated sugar, chocolate chips (yum), unsalted butter, and miniature marshmallows.

If you want to add a crunchy texture to your fudge, make sure to include chopped-up banana chips or peanuts, which both go very well with this recipe. Make sure that once you’re finished, you wrap up the fudge and store in an airtight container, and serve at room temperature when you’re ready for round two.
