Superfood Cashew Butter Chocolate Cups

Healthy Cashew Butter Choc Cup!

I made this delicious healthy version of ‘Reece’s cups’ last night for some friends and they were pleasantly impressed!

I saw this recipe on http://www.bewellwitharielle.com but added my own twist. Check out her site for some great recipes and her amazing wellness jeWELLry collection (I’m really loving her ‘i love me’ ring).

Ingredients:
2-4 tbsp Cacao powder
4 tbsp Coconut Oil
Handful of Goji Berries
2 tsp Coconut sugar (or you can use raw honey, agave or Stevia)
Packet of Raw Cashews

What to do:
Melt Coconut oil with a little boiling water and add cacao and coconut sugar, mix well. Pour into cupcake patties and set in the freezer for 5 mins.

To make the cashew butter soak cashews overnight or for at least 5 hours in water. Strain the water and blend until creamy (I made more and used it as a dip to have when the guests arrived- yum!)

When the chocolate is set put a dollop of cashew butter on top and cover with more cacao/coconut mix with added goji berries. Place this in the fridge until the top has set.

The finished product! I served it sprinkled with cacao and goji berries and a few coconut flakes

 

The Finished product!

This quick, simple and oh so delicious desert is high in good fats making it satiating. The cashew butter can be substituted for almond butter or if your blender is not powerful enough you can buy nut butters at your health food shop.

Cashews are a great nut, high in protein, minerals (especially magnesium) some B-Vitamins and good fats!

Again the amount of ingredients can differ depending on your taste and the consistency.
