Turmeric Jaffa Bites

Not only are these Turmeric Jaffa Bites a delicious treat, but they are also an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory superfood boost.

Let me tell you, this recipe is a serious crowd pleaser. The dark chocolate shell perfectly balances the soft, creamy”cheesecake” like filling… not to mention the unbeatable choc orange flavour combo.

In this recipe we have used a tablespoon of Golden Grind ‘Turmeric Smoothie Blend’ which is packed with superfoods including organic turmeric, cinnamon, hemp protein, ginger, tulsi, nutmeg and more. It is such an easy (and delicious) way to increase flavour and nutrients. Alternatively, you can use grated fresh turmeric root or powdered organic turmeric.

For the coating we have used Loving Earth dark chocolate but the chocolate you use is up to you.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cashews (soaked for 3-6 hours)
1/2 cup coconut yoghurt or coconut cream
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2-3 tbsp raw honey or coconut nectar
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tsp orange zest
1 tbsp Golden Grind turmeric smooth blend
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Choc coating

180 grams raw dark chocolate

Method
  1. Drain and rinse soaked cashews and place in a high-power blender with remaining turmeric filling ingredients, blend until smooth and creamy (this takes a few minutes).
  2. Spoon into a greased and lined baking tin and place in the freezer for 4-5 hours or until frozen.
  3. Using a sharp knife, slice into  approx. 16 squares
  4. Melt the chocolate using a double saucepan and then transfer to a shallow bowl.
  5. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly and then dip each individual turmeric cheesecake square into the chocolate until fully covered.
  6. Place a sheet of baking paper on a plate to transfer the chocolate covered bars.
  7. Place in the fridge or freezer for 10-20 minutes to set, then serve and enjoy.

Note: these bars can be stored in either the fridge or the freezer. If kept in the freezer the texture resembles an ice-cream sandwich and when stored in the fridge they have a softer, cheesecake-like texture.
