Almond Butter Pumpkin Pistachio Fudge (Paleo, Vegan, Sweetener-Free)

almond butter freezer fudge


This Paleo & Vegan Freezer Fudge is sweetener-free and made with almond butter fudge, mineral-rich dates, pistachio, and pumpkin then topped with flaked sea salt!


Hi healthy treat lovers! This will be my last blog recipe before Christmas, and it’s a gooooood one. I have 14 million fudge recipes on this website & I’ve thought long and hard about doing a healthy fudge ebook. Mostly for my own pleasure.


Real food fudge is just so much fun to make. You can combine fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and always flaked sea salt into something healthy, satisfying & decadent enough to take to parties.

I dubbed this fudge “hoarder-worthy” because you may not want to share. I recommend hiding your fudge in the vegetable drawer under something like Brussels sprouts. No one will find it.


No one looks in the vegetable drawer but you. I developed this handy trick once I met my husband who has never met a tray of cookies he can’t eat in one sitting.


This Paleo & Vegan Almond Butter Pistachio Pumpkin Fudge is…


  • Sweetener-free – just a few softened Medjool dates in this recipe!

  • Made with creamy, protein-rich almond butter. You can use any nut or seed butter though – even coconut butter!

  • Flavored with pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, pistachios and flaked sea salt!

  • Extra addicting because it’s drizzled with a sugar-free homemade chocolate made from cacao & coconut oil!

How to make Paleo & Vegan Freezer Fudge

1. Soften dates in a bowl of warm water or in the microwave to make them easier to blend with the almond butter.

2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor to blend well.

3. Sprinkle with pistachio and flaked sea salt for texture and to offset the sweetness of the fudge.

4. Freeze until firm and then make the chocolate drizzle out of melted coconut oil and cacao powder!

Place dates in a small bowl covered with water. Microwave for 30 seconds then drain.

In a food processor, combine dates, almond butter, pumpkin, 2 tablespoons coconut oil and spices until smooth.

Spoon mixture out onto a parchment-lined plate. Smooth and spread mixture with a rubber spatula until 1/2-inch thick. Sprinkle with pistachios and a generous amount of flaked sea salt.
