I fancied having something in my fridge that is sweet but refreshing at the same time, and healthy of course, and I haven’t made any form of bliss balls for a while so I just made these. All the ingredients are natural, organic and raw and the Baobab adds extra superfood goodness for added energy and an immune boost.
1 cup organic medjool dates
Half cup hazelnuts
Half cup almonds
Juice of 2 lemons (I like it quite lemony but you can reduce if you like)
1 tsp baobab
About half a cup desiccated coconut, give or take
First soak the nuts for at least 4 hours (you can soak them together in a bowl with purified water)
Add all the ingredients, including 4 tbsp of the coconut to the food processor and process until the nuts are totally ground into a butter and everything is well incorporated and soft.
Take about a spoonful out with your hands and roll into a ball and place on a large plate. Continue this until you have finished the mixture, leaving a gap in the middle of the plate. You may need to add a tiny bit of water to your hands to help roll the balls if they are too sticky.
Once they are all on the plate, sprinkle the rest of the coconut in a heap onto the middle of the plate and coat each one individually with the coconut.
Once they are ready you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer for about a month.
