Seeing the bags of Cadbury's Mini Eggs out on store displays is probably the biggest way that I know Spring and the Easter season is coming. (It's also my best friend Jennifer's favorite holiday candy, so I usually text her right away when I've spotted them!) This recipe not only veganizes them, but makes them 100% raw - which, to me, means easier clean-up.

Raw & Vegan Cadbury Mini Eggs

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut OR 1/2 cup coconut butter
1 tbsp agave
2 tbsp almond milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
A pinch of pink salt
Natural food coloring (To get pink, use beet juice from about a 1 inch nob of raw beet. For purple, 6 pureed blueberries + a bit of beet juice. For orange, juice and pulp of 1 small carrot. See the above picture for a better idea of the color results!)
1) In a food processor, process shredded coconut until a paste forms. Scrape down the sides as needed. (Skip this step if already using coconut butter.)
2) Add all other ingredients, except for food coloring, and process until mixture forms a paste and clumps into a ball.
3) Divide mixture into three separate bowls. Add desired food coloring to each bowl and mix until homogeneous. For easy shaping, mixture should not stick to your fingers when touched. Add a little bit of shredded coconut if mixture is too wet.
4) Roll mixture into little egg shapes, about the size of a nickel.
5) Chill in refrigerator or freezer until firm. Decorate with chocolate ganache if desired.
This sounds so easy! I will never stop being amazed by what a simple coconut can do haha
@marshalledgar It's because they're all usually in their kitchens gorging out on vegan copycat recipes. ;) Jk jk.
Yikes. Though I have yet to see or run into a Vegan that is overweight. Regardless, I am impressed with copycat recipes like these. @danidee
@marshalledgar Hahaha a long long time ago (aka the 90s), there were a lot of starving vegans that started getting really creative and now there's all these ridiculous (and ridiculously awesome) vegan copycat recipes. On one hand, that's awesome for animals. On the other, it's SO MUCH EASIER to eat super unhealthily on a vegan diet. Before, veganism pretty much guaranteed weight loss, but these days, you've got to balance and moderate just as much as everyone else now!
