Healthy Superfood Dessert Cups

DIRECTIONS:

Soak cashews for 30 minutes - 1 hour in warm water.
Blend all the ingredients for the base in a food processor, and push into cupcake molds (I used a silicone muffin mold). Place in freezer for now.


Blend all the ingredients for the filling together once the cashews have soaked, and top the base with the filling. Sprinkle hemp seeds and cacao nibs on top, and freeze for 3 hours.
I mentioned the coconut sugar in the filling is optional. I say this because dates are very sweet as it is, so it may be nice without it. Your choice!
Enjoy friend!

Keep in freezer up to a month (in an air tight container). Yields 9

15 dates
