Ingredients for 10 cupcakes

For the topping:

  • 150 grams of raw cashews
  • 125 ml of coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons of agave syrup
  • Pinch of ginger powder + cinnamon

For the base:

  • 100 grams of grated carrots
  • 250 grams of pitted dates
  • 200 grams of walnuts
  • 2 scoops of Orangefit Vanilla Protein
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon + ½ teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar


  1. Combine the soaked cashews with the rest of the ingredients for the topping in a food processor or blender and blend at high speed until smooth.
  2. Tip: Occasionally scrape down the sides to ensure no pieces are left behind.
  3. Transfer to a bowl, cover with foil, and place in the refrigerator.
  4. If necessary, grate the carrots now.
  5. Use a food processor to finely chop the dates. Transfer to a separate bowl.
  6. Add the pieces of walnuts, grated carrot, lemon zest, protein powder, coconut sugar (optional), and the spices. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together well and loosely.
  7. Grease the cupcake tin or place cupcake liners in it.
  8. Fill the cupcake liners ¾ full with the carrot-date mixture and press firmly with a spoon.
  9. Continue until you've used up all the carrot cake batter, then pour a layer of the creamy topping on top of each carrot cake cupcake.
  10. Place the cupcake tin in the freezer for about 3 to 4 hours to allow the topping to set.
  11. Take out of the freezer about 30 minutes before serving so the cupcakes have a nice temperature to enjoy!
  12. Tip: Grate some fresh lemon zest on top, add some walnut pieces, or half Easter eggs.
  13. Happy Easter!
