Pink Pitaya Cups


Wouldn’t it be great if over the holidays you could indulge in a delicious dessert that you didn’t have to feel guilty about? We invite you to try our Pink Pitaya Cups recipe. It requires no baking, simple ingredients, and is easy to make. On top of that, it’s 100% vegan, and provides you with tons of nutrients.

This vibrant recipe is only 140 calories per cupcake, contains 6 grams of fat (5 grams being unsaturated fat thanks to the almonds), and 6 grams of sugar. A typical slice of cheesecake is packed with three times the amount of calories, saturated fat, and five times the amount of sugar.

These RAW Pink Pitaya Cups have a creamy rich taste that gives off the perfect amount of sweetness that will have you wanting more!
