Ingredients

Chocolate Layer

  • 13 (100g) medium dates (Deglet Noor) *see notes
  • 5 tbsp (30g) shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 4 tbsp (24g) cocoa powder
  • ¾ tbsp (15g) maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener

Coconut Layer

  • 1 cup (90g) shredded unsweetened coconut
  • cup (160g) coconut yogurt *see notes
  • 3 tbsp (60g) maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener
  • 2 tbsp (28g) coconut oil melted

Instructions

  • I recommend measuring the ingredients in grams on a kitchen scale.

Chocolate Layer

  • Process the ingredients for the chocolate layer in your food processor for about 10 seconds or until the mixture is crumbly and slightly sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a muffin pan (I recommend using a silicone mold) and press it down firmly. Check the step-by-step photos above in the blog post.

Coconut Layer

  • Blend all the ingredients for the coconut layer in your blender for some seconds. You can also use a food processor as I did.
  • Spoon the filling onto the chocolate layer and slightly press it down. Put the pan in the freezer for at least one hour to set. Store the coconut cups in the fridge (for up to 5-6 days) or in the freezer (for up to 2 months). Let them thaw for about 20 to 30 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can use Medjool dates instead of Deglet Noor dates. Just make sure that you follow the metric measurements (100 grams) as Medjool dates are much larger than Deglet Noor dates, so you will need less.
  • Any other dairy-free yogurt or cashew cream might work too (I only tried coconut yogurt).
  • The recipe makes 8 coconut cups The nutrition facts are for one cup.
