Chocolate & Mint Fudge

I have made this creamy sweet potato chocolate mint fudge many times, everyone wants the recipe, it is delicious! Not to mention it’s sugar-free and so easy to make, it is the perfect treat! If you prefer not to freeze it, it can be eaten like a mousse type dessert although it is very concentrated, a little would be plenty to fill that yummy chocolate desire.

If you’re looking for a quick chocolate recipe, travel over to my chocolate fruit and nut bars.

✅ 1 sweet potato (previously baked)
✅1/2 cup nut butter of choice (I used almond and peanut butter)
✅2 tbsp coconut oil
✅1/4 tsp pink salt
✅1 tsp pure organic peppermint extract
✅3 tbsp pure cocoa powder
✅3 tbsp of brown rice syrup from Cal Valls
✅3/4 cup of almond flour
1. Previously bake the potato in it`s skin for aproximately 50 minutes at 180 degrees.

2. Remove the skin from the sweet potato and mix all of the above ingredients in a blender until they we’ll combine.

3. Press into a dish and freeze for two hours. That is how easy it is.

The difference between Spearmint and Peppermint

Mint is a perennial that will grow with abandon, starting when the soil begins to warm up in the spring. Find it year-round at the supermarket and farmer’s markets all summer long. Why not try growing it yourself from home it seems so easy and doesn`t need much maintenance.

  • Spearmint – this is the most popular one that you will find in most markets or local grocery stores. It has a light sweet mint flavour and is light green. It might sometimes find in natural cosmetics and toothpaste.  Spearmint contains vitamins, antioxidants, and other vital nutrients. It has a stomach calming effect and helps alleviate symptoms of nausea, indigestion, gas, headache, cramps, sore throat and even muscle pain when applied to the skin.
  • Peppermint – Peppermint is an aromatic plant, darker in colour and has a much stronger mint flavour, this is because of the presence of Menthol. It is used to add flavour or fragrance to foods, oils, soaps and cosmetics. Peppermint will often be added to cough medicine, toothpaste or chest rubs for its soothing effect.


Menthol is the chemical ingredient that creates that recognizable and wonderful cooling effect on the mouth. The substance comes from peppermint oils or is made in the laboratory. Menthol gives off a cooling sensation when eaten or placed on the skin, and acts as a mild pain reliever.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint essential oil is a concentrated oil that is used for aromatherapy or diluted and applied to the skin. When diluted it can be used to flavour or add fragrance to food or added to dietary supplements.
