A raw frozen treat free of gluten, dairy and processed sugar.
These little balls of sweetness are a delightful raw frozen treat to have at any time of the day and the combination of chocolate, fresh strawberries and coconut is very nice. They are quite soft at room temperature which is why they are best eaten frozen, but if a firmer ball is desired the avocado can be left out.
8 medjool dates (seeded)
1 dessert spoon organic raw cacao
3 tablespoons organic coconut oil
2 cups of mixed raw nuts (I used brazil and walnuts)
8 fresh strawberries (washed and the green top removed).
2 tablespoons black chia seeds
1/2 cup organic shredded coconut (plus a bit extra for rolling the balls in)
1 small avocado (optional)
Instructions for making the balls:
Place all of the ingredients in the food processor and mix until well blended.
Use a spoon to form balls of mix and roll in the extra shredded coconut.
Place the balls in a container and place in the freezer.
As these balls are raw they are really quick to make and filled with wonderful nutrients. Store the balls in an airtight container in the freezer and grab one when you need a healthy snack.
