How to Make Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pie  Fudge With Maca Root


Looking for a pumpkin fudge recipe for the Fall season that is dairy-free, gluten-free, plant-based, and super easy to make? Look no further! This recipe provides all that, with maca root powder’s added health benefits. 


This healthy 4 Ingredient pumpkin fudge is a quick, easy recipe, which literally takes minutes to whip up! It’s smooth, creamy and if you let it thaw slightly, melts in your mouth! Store it in the fridge, in an airtight container, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. 


What Goes In Easy Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Fudge?


Vegan Fudge only takes a few minutes on the stove top and some chillin' time in the fridge, and requires a saucepan and an 8x8 dish. Put them together and you'll have yourself an amazing Autumn season treat! This recipe only requires 4 ingredients, the last three are added for boosted health benefits and pumpkin spice flavor!


  • 2 cups cashew butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, or nut of choice (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Maca Root Powder (optional)
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)


How To Use Maca Root Powder


Maca root powder is also an excellent addition to anything you bake, such as cookies, bread, and cakes. Regarding breakfast, adding maca to smoothie or oatmeal is another great option, either by sprinkling it on top or adding it in while the oatmeal is cooking. 


The traditional way to consume maca root powder was as a hot tea; with this method, the boiling water assisted with killing off any mold that was possibly present. Maca root powder is also great for adding to your morning cup of coffee. 


Keep in mind, if you wish to receive the full nutritional benefits of maca root powder, be sure to only use it in recipes that require cooking below 115° Fahrenheit. And if you just can't get on board with the flavor of maca root added to your foods, there are also capsules, liquid extracts, coffee mixers and more available!
