We all have a busy week planned I am sure and this week will have a lot of love in the air. With all this in mind I decided to address Phat Fudge and Bulletproof on Steroids all in one post. Get ready folks, here is a great loaded post and paleo recipe just for you!
Below is my version of the amazing, healthy and overly popular recipe for Phat Fudge. The original recipe is from Mary, the Paleo Chef. If you do not know her, where the heck have you been?! J Her Phat Fudge is now available in packets and in case you are curious, the original ingredients are Grass Fed Butter, Tahini, Cacao, Ground Coffee, Turmeric, Cinnamon, Sea Salt, Maca, Raw Honey, Vanilla and Cayenne. The door is open for adjustments due to preference and taste. You will see I omitted all dairy (even Ghee) below and added some boosts in a couple of areas. Her original recipe rocks, don’t get me wrong. That is why it is so popular amongst her many celebrity and top sports clients and she is a regular in Santa Monica and supplies her Phat Fudge regularly to my buds at the Venice bakery, Sinners and Saints.
With Valentine’s day in the air and Phat Fudge on my mind, I decided to play in my kitchen and come up with a BOOSTER Phat Fudge that can be enjoyed as a fudge or one you can drop right into your coffee and blender, and Voilà! You got it – a Phat Fudge Bulletproof on Steroids. Your cells will thank you and the Gods for the amazing zing they will get and I am NOT talking caffeine and I am not even talking coffee. I am talking good for you, feel good stuff. Herbs and spices feed the very cells and are the most concentrated food on this planet after the number one, organs. Pretty amazing fact. The recipe below explains it all.
In this post I am also sharing 10 of my absolute favorite people and their own recipes for Valentine’s Day. I could have given about 40 but I will save some for another post. There are so many lovely and creative people in my world of food and women’s health that it is truly what keeps me inspired in what I do daily. All these recipes are very easy and ready for you to make in a pinch. I am all about easy, delicious and time saving. So here you go:

- 1 cup coconut butter
- ⅓ cup cacao
- 1 tablespoon turmeric

- Pour into silicone trays, with shapes of your own choice.
- Freeze for 2 hours or until completely set.

You may substitute MCT oil or more coconut oil for the XCT or Brain Octane, or ghee like Mary does.
You may store these in your refrigerator or freezer.
