Vegan Coconut and Mango Chocolate Cups…an easy recipe made with clean, whole food ingredients and they’re “almost raw”, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contain no refined sugar.
These Raw Vegan Coconut and Mango Chocolate Cups are loaded with clean, whole food ingredients like superfoods, nuts and seeds for a nutrient-dense snack that will keep you satisfied.
They are more like “tropical” treat because of the coconut and mango, but they have a nice crunch to them from the hemp seeds, chia seeds and cashews.
I used organic freeze-dried mangos and cut them up into little bite-sized pieces which gives it a natural sweetness.
And, they can be prepared in less than 10 minutes and freeze well so they are perfect to pull one out when you need a quick burst of energy.

Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door:
Tip #2: The extra coconut flakes on top are optional, and if you don’t like coconut flakes at all, you can still make these without the coconut flakes in the mixture or on top and they are still good.
Tip #3: You can make these 100% raw by making your own homemade chocolate (equal parts of organic coconut oil, organic raw cacao and organic maple syrup). They might melt a little easier than using the mini chocolate chips and you will need to keep them in the freezer until ready to serve.
