4 ingredient homemade fudge with secret ingredient

4 ingredient homemade fudge made with a secret ingredient!


Learn how we made a 4 ingredient homemade banana coconut fudge with a secret ingredient.

Secret ingredient? You’re probably thinking it is avocado? Are we right? Since you know we LOVE our avocados. But nope, not this time.

This time we tried using other favorite ingredients of ours… SPINACH. 

Yep spinach.

We know you are probably thinking, “spinach in fudge, how could that be good?” We promise you can not even taste it. As we used the spinach to provide a green color, the real flavor is banana coconut. 

Here is another green recipe that was inspired by St. Patty’s day coming.  Check out our green mint marshmallows  for another healthy sweet snack option.

As you can tell we adore our quick and simple homemade SOFT and CREAMY fudge recipes from our pumpkin pie fudge and our red beet fudge with chocolate sauce.


This homemade fudge contains really only 4 main ingredients (as we are not including vanilla as an ingredient).

This banana coconut butter fudge takes about 5 minutes to make in your Vita-mix or any blender.

How many fudge recipes can you say that about? Not many… well besides our other two  homemade  fudge recipes.


The basis for this fudge is coconut butter ( you could use coconut oil, we just like the texture coconut butter provides the fudge) and a banana. We threw in some spinach for providing a green color, and added in a little maple syrup for that little extra sweetness, it can be omitted.

Once batter is blended set your fudge into the freezer to set for a few hours. Just like our other fudge recipes this batter can be delicate to work with because it is sensitive to heat.  We recommend moving fast when getting the fudge out of pan.

We like to store our fudge in the freezer and pull it out to room temperature for a little bit to get nice and soft, and oh so creamy.


When making this fudge feel free to lick the batter as you go 😉  We have no shame in admitting we lick our blender clean. 

Seriously, what is not to love about this homemade banana coconut ‘green’ fudge recipe?


  • fast
  • creamy
  • smooth
  • naturally sweetened
  • few ingredients
  • quick to make
  • full of fiber and healthy fats
  • and it’s green… ok we like to eat green foods, so we added that. hehe



We used our individual mini cheesecake pan for this, you could use a muffin pan or small pie circle.


4 ingredient GREEN banana spinach homemade fudge (raw, vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, naturally sweetened)

A healthy recipe for homemade fudge (raw, vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, naturally sweetened). This green fudge is made from bananas and spinach. A real food treat.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 6-7 individual fudge pieces 1x


  • 2 small bananas, about 5oz
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, 4 1/2oz
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 3/4oz


  1. In your Vita-mix or blender place you bananas, coconut butter (works best if it is softened) and vanilla. Blend.
  2. Next add in your fresh spinach and maple syrup.
  3. Continue to blend until everything is well blended.
  4. Pour fudge batter into your pan. We used individual mini cheesecake pan. Could use muffin pan or cake pan. To make sure it does not stick and is easier to take out if using a cake pan, we recommend putting down parchment paper.
  5. Set fudge into your freezer for a few hours to set.
  6. Carefully remove from freezer and cut into sizes, or in our case pop out of pan.
  7. This fudge is heat sensitive and will get soft if left out at room temperature for too long.
  8. Can store in freezer or fridge for a quick creamy fudge treat.

I’ve never liked conventional fudge- it just tastes like pure sugar (which I guess it pretty much is…), but this kind of fudge I think I could get behind. The spinach makes it a really pretty colour too.

purelytwins March 8, 2013 - 4:31 pm

haha very true about conventional fudge!

Caitlin March 8, 2013 - 5:58 pm

well i suppose spinach in fudge makes sense since you can’t taste it in smoothies either, like black beans in brownies! but green food unless it’s lettuce or spinach itself tends to scare me! haha perfect for st patty’s coming up tho!

HI, I want to make these. The coconut butter is that just coconut oil?

purelytwins March 11, 2013 - 8:41 am

No coconut butter is not just coconut oil, coconut butter is coconut oil mixed with the whole flesh of coconut. Where coconut oil is just the oil no coconut meat.
