Servings: 6 bars


  • 2/3 cup Organic Protein™ Plant Based Protein Powder – Peppermint Hot Cocoa
  • 4 pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt*
  • 1/2 tsp mint extract
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips*
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips*
  • 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candies


  • To a food processor fitted with a metal blade or high-powered blender, add the dates, coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk, Greek yogurt, mint extract and pulse until smooth, wiping down sides with a spatula as needed.
  • Transfer the batter into a bowl, then mix with Orgain Organic Protein™ Plant Based Protein Powder Peppermint Hot Cocoa, almond flour, and cocoa powder until smooth. If dough becomes thick, add 1 teaspoon of almond milk at a time to help ensure all dry ingredients are mixed. 
  • Line a loaf pan (9-inch x 5-inch) with parchment paper, then firmly press the dough into the pan until evenly distributed. Place in the freezer for at least an hour.
  • When ready to apply topping, heat chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in small glass bowls in the microwave in 15-second intervals until melted. 
  • Drizzle each type of chocolate on top of the fudge in the loaf pan, then top with peppermint pieces. 
  • Place back in the freezer for another 30 minutes for chocolate to harden, then cut into desired number of servings. 
  • Serve immediately.
  • Store remaining fudge bars in the refrigerator and use within 10 days. 

Recipe Notes: To make this recipe Dairy-Free and vegan select vegan dark/white chocolate chips, and consider replacing Greek yogurt with a plant-based yogurt of your choice.
