Mango Cashew Sunshine Bites

Hello friends,
While I am away on holiday over the next few weeks, I will continue to post recipes just not full articles. Enjoy!

I made it. My bean dip and everything else has officially passed through security on all three legs of my journey to Kauai. I am writing this 30,000 feet above the blue ocean, about two hours (out of the thirty eight!) from our final destination. I have never been so excited to get off a plane in. my. life.

As promised, here is the recipe for Mango Cashew Sunshine Bites that I made for my trip. When we left Denmark there was an impending snowstorm with no signs of spring whatsoever. My body was beginning to crave new flavours and my excitement for the tropics took hold. I wanted to pack in as many fresh and exotic tastes as I could, and these little beauties are the result. I absolutely love the tang of lime and mango combined with the warm, mellow vanilla vibes and crunchy coconut. The cashews lend a creaminess and the salt acts as the perfect balancer. I also added turmeric to the treats for a nutritional boost, but this is totally optional. Keep in mind that turmeric has a very mild flavour so you will not taste it at all. Plus, it really makes the golden colour pop!

Although these are raw and more of a warm-weather treat, they are still a great snack to have around all year. And because they use almost completely dried foods, you don’t need to wait for summer to make them.

The only tip I will offer for this recipe is choosing the right kind of dried mango. Most dried mango has been sweetened to high heaven and preserved with sulfites of some kind. Look for organic mango if possible, but always read the label – even organic dried mango can contain organic sugar.

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I have and that you don’t wait for a long trip to try them out!

Love and sunshine,
Sarah B.
