Dairy-free Coconut Lime Fudge [Vegan, Paleo]

This fudge is SO perfect for both spring and summer, and if you aren’t a lime fan, you can easily substitute lemon! Fudge is so easy to make. It is honestly my go-to dessert. I love how incredibly versatile it is. There are endless flavor possibilities, and it’s great year-round.

The bright and tangy citrus flavor of this coconut lime fudge is so refreshing, and thanks to all the healthy fats this baby is loaded with, each little square is also incredibly satisfying.

Recipe type: Snacks
  • 1 cup coconut butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil*
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • fresh juice from 1 lime (can sub lemon)
  • *If your mixture is very thick, you can add another 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil, but I wouldn't use more than 4 tbsp
  1. Put everything into a small pot and whisk on low heat until fully incorporated
  2. Let mixture heat up for 2-3 minutes, whisking continuously
  3. Deposit mixture into silicon molds and freeze for at least 1 hour
  4. Store in the freezer or fridge

*If your coconut butter and/or oil is hard and needs to soften before measuring, heat them up first. I like to put my jar of coconut butter or oil in the oven for about 1-2 minutes on low heat to loosen up. Sounds weird, but I don’t own or use a microwave. And it’s so quick! Just be very careful not to spill the oil. Make sure it sits in the oven securely.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! You can find me and more delicious creations on Instagram @balancebykim! ‘Til next time!!

  1. Well, I made the first batch tonight after buying a whole bag of limes yesterday. 😉 For me, it needs more than 1lime juiced and zested or maybe just a bigger lime? I also put a little zest in the bottom on each silicone mold and the balance in the fudge. I noticed the fudge tasted different and better, when cold ie out of the freezer than licking the spoon warm or as it warms up.

    1. Hi Donna! I think the amount of lime will certainly depend on your taste and preference. For my fiancé and myself, one was enough. But if you need or want more, absolutely go for it! I agree, it does taste different when it’s warm vs when it sets into the fudge. I actually find that to be true with any kind of fudge or frozen dessert – at least with the ones I’ve made so far.

      I hope you enjoyed them! And thank you for trying out the recipe!

  2. I also think I needed more coconut oil or something to loosen it up before I put in the molds……ah the life.
    Guess I will just need to make another batch! LOL

    1. haha! How much coconut oil did you use? I went with the 4 tbsp but think I could have done a little less. The consistency of the coconut butter will also affect how much coconut oil you need. I hope they were still yummy! Did you enjoy them?
