Quest Creation - Creamy Coconut Cups

Quest Bars are amazing! They taste delicious and are actually good for you! Packed with protein, no added sugar, and only the best ingredients  The best part about them is that you can turn them into so many crazy and yummy treats! For example, some Creamy Coconut Cups!
Can you believe these were made from a Quest Bar?! True story!

So simple too! All you need is a Coconut Cashew Quest Bar, nonfat plain greek yogurt, shredded coconut, vanilla, and sweetener if you like. 
I used unsweetened coconut, but whatever you prefer is fine.  You could use any type of yogurt, but I prefer the thickness of greek.  

Unwrap that wonderful bar and microwave for 10 seconds.  
Make sure you use a microwave safe plate.  I recommend using parchment paper so it doesn't stick.  DON'T use a napkin or paper towel!

I am making two tasty treats, but you could also make this as one bigger dessert.  Coat whatever dishes you are using very generously with nonstick spray. Break the softened bar into two pieces and just mold it into the dish.  
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. 

Let them cool completely before trying to get them out of the baking dishes.  
I stuck mine in the freezer for a couple minutes and popped them out.  Just go around the edges slowly with a knife and they should come out pretty easily. 

While those are cooling you can mix up the filling.  Just add your yogurt, coconut, vanilla, and sweetener to a bowl and stir.
This stuff is great to eat just like this! It also makes a great dip for crackers and pretzels.  Try your best to not eat it all this time!

Once your cups are cooled, just plop a spoonful of the filling in each one. 
Make sure they are completely cooled so you don't melt the yogurt. 

 Take a little more of that shredded coconut and sprinkle it on top!
I just love coconut! The smell...the taste...

How amazing do those look?!
The best part is they are a "clean cheat" That means they taste like something that is not so good for you...but they really are good for you! Packed with protein from the bar and yogurt, sweet from the coconut and vanilla, and just simply delicious! 

Just look at that bite!!

 The bar makes a perfect crunchy crust and the yogurt is cold and creamy.  
So go buy some Quest Bars, make these, and share the recipe with your family and friends!!
