If you're a tea-drinker and dessert-lover, this Healthy Matcha Green Tea Coconut Fudge recipe is for you! It's super soft, fluffy, flavorful, and sweet, yet it's made sugar free, low carb, and high protein, without the white sugar, corn syrup, heavy cream, and butter!
Line an 8” brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
In a high-speed blender or food processor, add the cottage cheese, vanilla paste, sweetener, and matcha powder. Puree until completely smooth.
While blending, pour in the melted coconut butter.
While blending, sprinkle in the homemade metamucil. Scoop the mixture into the prepared brownie pan and spread out the surface to flatten. Place the pan in the freezer for 2 hours.
Place the shredded coconut in a large bowl.
Slice the fudge into 36 pieces (it will be a tad sticky, but that's normal... once it's coated in the coconut it won't be!). Coat the fudge squares with the shredded coconut, then place on a large serving plate.
Once all the fudge is coated with the coconut, refrigerate uncovered overnight and serve the next day (You can serve them immediately if you want to, but they'll be really soft at this point... everyone liked these best the next day).
If you REALLY like coconut flavor, feel free to add some coconut extract to the recipe!
