This recipe for Pomegranate Chipotle Protein Fudge was inspired by the first raw vegan dessert I made from the blog Fragrant Vanilla Cake. The recipe was for Raw Pomegranate Chipotle Brownie Bites and I was so intrigued by the flavor combination, I just had to make it. So I went out and found raw buckwheat groats to soak, sprout, and dehydrate. I made the brownie mix, and waited patiently as it dehydrated. It was a delicious raw vegan treat! But I’m excited now to present a quicker, high-protein recipe with the same interesting flavor combination. Here I give you Pomegranate Chipotle Protein Fudge!

I love the combination of pomegranate and chocolate. The pomegranate seeds give little juicy bursts of flavor in each bite of fudge!

If you’re not a fan of the hot pepper, you can certainly leave it out and still get a delicious chocolate pomegranate protein fudge.

I started with my recipe for Double Chocolate Protein Fudge, adding chipotle and pomegranate seeds. An easy twist for a major transformation in flavor! Give it a try!

Notes
A note about substitutions: You can substitute casein powder for the whey powder. For a vegan version, you could use Vega Sport Chocolate. Other vegan powders are chalkier, and wouldn't work well.
Almond butter can be made by processing almonds in a food processor.
