Healthy Easter Egg Peanut Butter Cups
Here you will need:
- ¼ cup peanut butter of your choice

- 2 tablespoons sweeter of your choice (agave, stevia, maple syrup)
Mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar in a bowl until the consistency become like dough. Taste the dough. You may add a little bit of salt if it tastes a bit bland. Shape the dough into little eggs and put in the freezer until it’s hard. (About an hour)
Combine the coconut oil and cocoa in a bowl and add your sweetener. Then, take out the eggs and coat them in the chocolate and put right back in the freezer. Let them sit a little while and then enjoy.
Carrot Cake Milkshake
Here you will need:
- 1 frozen banana (choose a large one)
- 2/3 cup coconut or almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 carrot (small or medium)

Steam the carrot to soften it up and then mix the ingredients in the blender or Nutribullet. Enjoy!
Healthy Style Cadbury Crème Eggs
For the cream filling and yolks:
- One bag of peaches or mango (frozen)
- ¼ cup almond or coconut milk
- A pinch of healthy sweetener (stevia works well)
- Cream cheese
- 1 cup melted chocolate chips
For this recipe, you’ll need an egg-shaped mold. Place it in the freezer to get cold. First, you’ll make the yolks by mixing the frozen fruit, milk, and sweeter in a blender or Nutribullet. Freeze this mixture and then melt the chocolate chips in a bowl. Grab your egg mold out of the freezer and pour a little bit of the chocolate to coat the walls to make a half-egg. Put these back in the freezer for about five minutes. Do one more layer of chocolate to get the desired consistency and then fill up the egg with cream cheese and then add the yellow yolk that you’ve already blended.
