Mango Cashew And Ginger Energy Bites

  1 rater(s)

A quick warning about these energy bites: you have to be careful not to scarf down every single one all at once! These mango cashew and ginger energy bites are some of the better ones we’ve put out on our website. They are tropical, slightly sweet, and have a subtle kick from the fresh ginger root. Roll these little balls of nutritious goodness in desiccated coconut for an extra textural and flavorful element. If you dislike coconut (we know you’re out there), then you can skip the coconut.

Another thing to note about this recipe is that it calls for dried mango, not fresh mango. If the recipe contained fresh mango, the consistency would not be correct. Additionally, they would not last as long in the fridge. When purchasing dried mango, make sure that you purchase a bag that does not contain added sugars or preservatives like sulfur dioxide. Those ingredients render the dried fruit unhealthy and you cannot consume them while cleansing. Natural is best!

Energy bites are great because they double as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, helping to satiate you between meals. They also make for great pre- or post-workout snacks that help provide your muscles with nutrients they need to perform or recover. The last thing we’ll say is that, although these energy bites are not a tropical ray of sunshine, they may help brighten your day. Or at least they’ll make your taste buds happy, and that’s the real win!

Mango Cashew And Ginger Energy Bites
  • Prep Time:15m
  • Total Time:14m

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c dried mango (no added sugars or preservatives)
  • 1/2 c raw cashew nuts
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 8 -10 dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tbsp. ginger, grated
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • desiccated coconut (for rolling)

Instructions

  1. Add everything, except for the desiccated coconut, to a food processor and blend until you achieve a dough-like consistency. You may need to stop blending, scrape down the sides, and continue blending to incorporate all of the ingredients.
  2. Line a plate with parchment paper and wet your hands with water. Wetting your hands makes the mixture less likely to stick to your hands when forming the energy bites.
  3. Form about 12 bite-size balls from the mixture and place them on the parchment paper-lined plate. Freeze for 15 minutes and then remove from the freezer.
  4. Scatter the desiccated coconut on a plate and then roll the balls in it to coat in coconut. If you dislike coconut, feel free to skip this step.
  5. Place the balls back in the freezer for another 20 minutes or so and then remove to enjoy. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
