Healthy Vegan Freezer Fudge. Need I say more? Just make it, make it now. Drop what you’re doing, grab 3 simple ingredients and put this in the fudge in the freezer overnight. By this time tomorrow, you’ll be snacking on creamy, delicious, almond buttery goodness. This might be the best thing ever made with so little effort.
Healthy Vegan Freezer Fudge is mild to ridiculously addicting – so you’ve been warned. I find myself making multiple trips back to the freezer everyday to sneak a piece without my 2-year-old catching me. If she sees me, it’s over. She will eat everything I have in my hands before I even get a bite. She’s definitely on the ridiculous end of the freezer fudge addiction. And I’m right there with her.
What 3 Ingredients do I need to make this insanely delicious freezer fudge?
- Almond butter – Creamy, smooth almond butter is best. Leave the dry chunky stuff at the bottom of the container for another time.
- Coconut oil – Use refined coconut oil if you want to skip to coconut flavor. Regular coconut oil works just as well, but you’ll get a hint of coconut flavor in the fudge. I say YUM but I understand not everyone agrees.
- Maple syrup – Sweet, natural maple syrup keeps this freezer fudge refined sugar-free.
- Mini dairy free chocolate chips
- Goji berries
- Toasted coconut
- Chopped nuts
- Sunflower seeds (I admit to using the dreaded unhealthy salted version here from time to time… OMG it’s delicious. But the unsalted healthy ones are great too.)
Basically anything you love to add to your cookies, granolas or loaves, will work magically here.
How do I make it?
It’s complicated but worth it. Just kidding – it’s the easiest treat you’ll ever make in 1 pot. Just melt the coconut oil, almond butter, and maple syrup in a small pot over medium-low heat. You want them to blend together smoothly, but don’t overheat or you’ll just have to wait longer before pouring it out and adding toppings. No biggie – unless you’re impatient like yours truly over here.
Pour the just-melted mix onto a small lined baking sheet and give it a few taps to even it out. Wait about 20-30 minutes for it to begin to set at room temperature. You’ll have to keep an eye on the texture because the length of time to wait depends on how warm it got in the pot. Once it looks set and has cooled a bit, sprinkle on about 2 tbsp of your favorite toppings and pop it in the freezer overnight, uncovered. By morning you’re snacking on “healthy” fudge which really just means you can eat more of it, right?
Healthy Vegan Freezer Fudge is:
- Just sweet enough
- Melts in your mouth
- Versatile – top it with just about anything you can think of
- Refined sugar-free

Just be sure to enjoy it as soon as you take it out of the freezer. It melts quickly at room temperature thanks to the coconut oil, so keep it stored in the freezer until you’re ready to binge. I mean.. snack.

Overnight Vegan Freezer Fudge – GF, 3 Ingredients
- Lined baking sheet – small
- Small pot and spatula
- Measuring cups and spoons or a kitchen scale
- ½ cup Almond Butter (120g)
- ¼ cup Coconut Oil (50g) Use refined version for no coconut taste
- 2 tbsp Maple Syrup (50g)
- 2 tbsp Your favorite toppings of choice! (Optional) I used 1 tbsp Goji Berries and 1 tbsp Dairy Free Mini Chocolate Chips
- Add almond butter, coconut oil and maple syrup to a small pot and melt together over medium low heat
- Stir with a spatula while melting to ensure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot
- As soon as all ingredients are combined to a smooth consistency, pour out onto rimmed, lined baking sheet
- Let sit to cook for 10-20 minutes until semi-set (actual time will depend on the temperature in your kitchen, so watch for it to be firm enough that the toppings will sit on top, yet still stick to the fudge)
- Sprinkle toppings over fudge and press down into the fudge if necessary, to ensure they stick (I used goji berries and dairy free chocolate chips)
- Freezer uncovered overnight
- Break apart into serving sized pieces and enjoy!
- Store fudge in the freezer at all times. Cover it or put it into an airtight container after the first night, if desired. It melts quickly at room temperature due to the coconut oil, so keep it frozen until you're ready to dig in!
