Is it just me or has 2017 just sped by?! I can’t believe it’s December already, which means Christmas is just around the corner! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah or just need a chocolatey pick-me-up to get you through the cold and dark winter, these Reese’s-inspired Nut Butter Cups are perfect for the festive season.
They are stuffed with a sweet green filling which owes its colour to the superfood powder moringa – one of the most nutrient-dense plants in the world. Moringa is:
- high in protein, containing all 9 essential amino acids
- rich in vitamins including Vitamin C for immunity and Vitamin A for eye health
- good source of minerals including iron (fights tiredness) and calcium (strong bones)
- high in fibre which aids digestion
- packed with antioxidants
The moringa is mixed with two natural sweeteners (honey and maple), a small pinch of sea salt and creamy cashew butter to form a caramel-like filling for the chocolate shell. I personally love using my Homemade Raw Chocolate, but any good quality dark chocolate works perfectly well. Decorate with a couple of goji berries on top to enhance the red/green Xmas colour scheme, and to add an extra superfood boost!
