Chocolate Cups With Moringa Cashew Cream [Vegan, Gluten-Free]








For the Chocolate:

  • 1 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • Pinch of unrefined sea salt

For the Moringa Matcha Cream:

  • 2/3 cup raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours or longer
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon moringa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon matcha
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
  • Pinch of unrefined sea salt


To Make the Chocolate:

  1. If your coconut oil is solid, add it to a small pan and let it melt over low heat.
  2. Once melted, remove from heat, add cacao powder to the oil and mix well with a spoon until completely dissolved (no clumps remaining). Add maple syrup and sea salt and stir to combine.
  3. Line a muffin tin with nine muffin cases. Pour liquid chocolate into the cases and fill them up 1/4 way through. Transfer to the freezer or refrigerator for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate sets.

To Make the Moringa Cashew Cream:

  1. Rinse and drain the soaked cashews. Pour them into the blender with the rest of ingredients and blend until completely silky and smooth.
  2. Take out the tin, add about 2 teaspoons of the cashew cream in the middle of each cup and fill them up with the remaining liquid chocolate. Add more sea salt on top if desired.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until set (or freeze them if you’re short of time). Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer.
