Super Food Chocolate Cups, Caramel Apple Donut Holes & GIVEAWAY

I have two great recipes to share with you along with another giveaway! On that note, Maureen Wiser, is the winner of last week's PowerPlant giveaway. Congrats (I hope you check your email). I held my first word wide instagram giveaway this past week too - and I have more great giveaways coming up in celebration of the holiday season (think chocolate 😉 . Some of these giveaways will only be happening through my instagram so be sure to join me there to stay in the loop!

Today I'm sharing one of my favourite ways to sneak super foods and greens into my diet. I'm also sharing the recipe for these raw vegan caramel apple donut holes that are nutritious, delicious, and are especially perfect this time of year.

In June I introduced you to an awesome organic green super food juice powder called Subi that is new to the market. I also shared a power ball recipe using the powder. You can see it HERE. Fast forward a bit.... Subi has changed their formula. It was once called Raw Food Powder and now it's called Super Juice (which I think is a great fit since once it's mixed with water its basically a super food green juice).

The former blend had kale, barley grass juice powder, and spirulina as its first three ingredients while the new blend has matcha, kale, and spirulina as its first three ingredients. The other ingredients you'll find in the blend are: barley grass juice powder, wheatgrass juice powder, chlorella, peppermint, acai, ginseng, goji berry, maca, fruit/veggie blend (spinach, broccoli, carrot, beet, tomato, shiitake mushroom, apple cranberry, orange, blueberry, strawberry, ginko biloba.

Whew, is that a good list or what?! Do you want to know the best part, in my opinion? Obviously all these ingredients are potently healthy and energizing BUT the power is so neutral in taste! It's incredible. There's NO sweetener or "natural" flavor added. I can taste the peppermint in it, and the matcha! It's so easy to consume.

Lately I've been making these low sugar treats on a regular basis using the Subi blend(in fact I'm munching on right now, hehe). I've added a pinch of green stevia powder (the leaf ground up) but you don't even need it because the coconut butter has natural sweetness to it. You can choose to dip them into your favourite dark chocolate if desired. I like them both with and without the chocolate. When that afternoon sugar craving hits, I like the addition of the chocolate but when I just need a little boost I like to eat one or two of them plain.

You can half or even double this recipe if you want (I just go ahead and make big batches now because I eat them so quickly). They're SO easy to make!

Green Super Food Chocolate Cups

Raw - Vegan - Nut Free / Makes 9 cups

2/3 cup melted coconut butter

1 tablespoon (or more) subi powder

1/4 teaspoon green stevia powder*

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon it into mini silicone muffin cups (these are one of my favourite kitchen tools and you can put them in the dishwasher) that are set on a tray. Place into the fridge until the cups are hard, about 25 minutes. Peel out of the cups.

*These days I'm enjoying the green powder as its the most natural form of stevia but you can also use 2-3 drops stevia extract (I've made it both ways).

Chocolate Dipping

1 cup dark chocolate of choice

1 teaspoon coconut oil

Place cups in the freezer while melting the chocolate. Place the chopped chocolate (or chips) and oil in a heat proof bowl set over a pot of hot water. Melt slowly. Dip each cup into the chocolate. Transfer onto a parchment paper lined tray. Set in the fridge to harden.

NOTES:

  • These treats will store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
  • Do NOT get any water into the coconut butter mix. Make sure that your bowl is dry.
  • Do not get any water into your chocolate when melting it.
  • Add more subi powder and as much stevia as you like, or omit entirely.
  • You could add things like hemp seeds, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, etc.

Onto the second recipe. These raw vegan caramel apple cinnamon donut holes are sooo yummy! They incorporate things like dried apples, nuts, cinnamon and a unique ingredient called lucuma powder which is a South American fruit that tastes like caramel. With its high fiber, vitamin and mineral content, it's considered a super food. Here in North America we have access to it in dried, powdered form. I have yet to tried it fresh but I want to so badly! In Peru, lucuma ice cream is very common. I bet it's heavenly.

Raw Caramel Apple Cinnamon Donut Holes

Donut Holes

1 1/2 cups raw cashew pieces

1/2 cup shredded coconut

3/4 cup finely chopped dried apples*

3 tablespoons lucuma powder

1/4 cup packed dates

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon water

Finely grind the cashews and coconut in a food processor. Add the apples, dates, lucuma, cinnamon, and salt. Grind again until a moist dough forms. Don't over process. Roll into large balls.

*They must be dry. If you try to use fresh the dough will be mushy from the water content.

Caramel Glaze

2 tablespoons coconut nectar*

2 tablespoons lucuma powder

4 tablespoons melted coconut butter

2 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Dip each ball into the glaze (or pour it over top). Place in the fridge or freezer for at least 30 minutes to let it firm up.

*You can also try with maple syrup but since it's thinner than coconut nectar, you might need to add more lucuma.

Please pin 🙂

    Hello, I have never used a green powder, but I would like to start. I would probably use it in smoothies to start and, obviously, the two yummy recipes you posted, they look so good!

    I like to drink green powders in water so that I can gulp them down quickly and not have them change the flavor of my food/smoothies.

    These look gorgeous! And you can't go wrong with those health benefits right? I mean, I guess you could even have dessert for breakfast :P My favourite way to use greens powder is in a morning elixir. I steep a scoop in hot water and whisk in some coconut milk to make it rich! :) Subscribed!

    yes, we try to always have a green powder in the house, so many nutrients in one! I am not big into smoothies so I usually just mix with enough water to get it down!

    I use Moringa powder in my smoothies now sometimes (after seeing you use it!). I like the health benefits but find the taste a bit too much for me so I’m excited to hear this one is more neutral tasting :).
