Apple Cider Vinegar…. medicinal purposes… maybe!

I totally think Apple Cider Vinegar a.k.a ACV (the Raw – unfiltered kind)  is the Cure for everything (or at least a bunch of things).   On Friday I had the starting of a sore throat.  I read on this blog I follow  Little Home in the Country that at the first sign of a sore throat –>  Take 2 tbsp of ACV in 4oz of water and chug it.  Do this every 30 mins until symptoms are gone.  I did this 3 times (the 3rd just to be safe!)  viola sore throat gone.

I am researching other aspect of it to see what it can help with.

OMG! I found a Paleo-Gluten Free-Dairy Free Peanut Butter Fudge.

Ok guys!    I found nirvana!

Ok as close to it as I possible can that is for sure.

I was browsing my Facebook feed and this microwave Peanut Butter Fudge recipe kept popping up… I LOVE PB!    The recipe however wouldn’t have loved me .. it included half and half along with a pound of butter and a cup of sugar.   “AVOID”  was stamped on it.   This got me thinking there must be someone out their that has made a healthier version something to curb my sweet tooth – GOOGLE here I come.  Then I found it hidden amongst all the links.  Quick Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge on the Detoxinista.com web page.

The picture had me.    I ran home  and tried it but discovered I didn’t quite have the right ingredients.   So I improvised just a tad – with Jiff Naturals and Coconut Butter / Coconut Oil mix.

So check out the original recipe and the yummy photo…

this is my spin on the original recipe  Quick Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge by the Detoxinista.com  – I did (doubled the recipe)

Takes about 5 minutes to make once you have everything assembled.
Key Items
  • 1 cup peanut butter – I used Jiffy Naturals
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  • 1 used Artisana Coconut Butter (Soften) –  about 1.2 oz
  • 2 tablespoon raw honey – I used Dark
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2  teaspoon fine sea salt – I used Celtic Sea Salt – I am thinking I could have used a little more
How to make it
  1. Mix everything together making sure that the coconut oil and butter mix until smooth.  I put the glass bowl I was making it in over a pain of hot water to make sure everything incorporated.  A microwave would work but  I don’t own one.
  2. Pour on to parchment paper in a container –  You want the “fudge to be about 1/2 of inch or so.   I poured mine on to a small dinner plate that has a little bit of a well.
  3. Put this in the freezer until it firms up – about 15-30 minutes.  It will depend on your freezer and thickness of the fudge in your container.
  4. Once it’s firm enjoy –  the fudge like quality is obtain when the oil/butter freezes… so EAT it right out the freezer!
  5. If you have some left remember to store in the freezer. 
ENJOY!   I promise to take a picture next time.   I also plan to experiment by adding some crunch.   If you like dark chocolate I image you can add a layer of it to the top and have some very awesome Paleo Peanut Butter Cups… but I am chocolate free at least until 4/10/14!
