These melts are named as they melt in your mouth; a little like healthy fudge! They are made of nothing but healthy ingredients and take about 5 minutes to prepare plus freezing time. I love to make a batch and so if I want something a little sweet after a meal of before a workout, I can just reach into my freezer and grab some. Handy healthy snacks! These snacks also a super convenient (and crafty way to get the kids to eat more fruit!

You can of course use any mould you want. I used heart shaped silicone moulds as I have been making them for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

These hearts are nutritious (check those antioxidants!), vegan, gluten-free and free from refined sugars. The soaked cashews or cashew butter add creaminess as well as a dose of healthy fats. You can also boost up the nutritional profile by adding Omega-3 Superpowder; a blend of acai, sacha inchi and coconut and protein powder or ground flaxseed.
