Erewhon sells these strawberry bliss balls my client is obsessed with and asked me to recreate it for her at home. You all know how much I love a ball, so I was excited for the challenge. I recreated this heavenly sweet treat and they are a huge hit! Excited to say I can add it to my repertoire of beautiful balls. Ever since my cancer treatment I have sworn off refined or processed sugars and am constantly on the look out for healthy sweet treats to satisfy my cravings. And this one might be my new favorite!
You will need:
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 cup raw unsalted cashew nuts
1 cup @jooliesdates pitted dates
1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries
6 tbsp coconut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of maldon sea salt
1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (I love Tejari's organic strawberry + cacao flavor for these)
Start by blending the cashew nuts, freeze dried strawberry and shredded coconut in your food processor until it's crumbs.
Now add in your dates, coconut butter, maple syrup, protein powder, sea salt and vanilla extract and blitz on high until the mixture is combined and it all starts to clump together.
With a tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop 1 tablespoon and roll in your hands to form a ball.
Repeat until you have used up all the mixture.
Place the balls in your fridge for at least 1 hour before eating.
They will last in your fridge for up to 2 weeks, if they last that long!
You could also dip them in some melted chocolate with a touch of coconut oil and sprinkle with some
Freeze dried strawberries if you wanted to make them extra delicious!
