cocoanut lime love balls

Print Friendly

Here’s a delicious, simple take on a homemade truffle for Valentine’s Day.  Perfect as a sweet treat with a glass of milk or a cup of tea, these balls are free of added sugars, dairy and gluten and full of my favourite secret ingredient, love.

Ingredients:

1.5 c. cashews or almonds (raw or roasted)

1.5 c. whole dates (soaked in water for a few minutes then drained if they’re not moist to start)

1/3 cup unsweetened coconut

1/3 c. cocoa

rind and juice of one lime

 

To prepare:

In a food processor, blend nuts until a coarse flour results.  Add dates, coconut, cocoa, rind and lime juice and process until well combined.  The mixture will seem a little dry, but will bind together when you roll it, so don’t be concerned!

Roll the mixture into 1” balls, then roll again in a little unsweetened coconut, and refrigerate 1 hr. Store in fridge or freezer.

  1. My husband and I am completely addicted to these!! I use half and half cashews and almonds and add a little powdered sugar to my coconut when I roll it so I truly feel like I’m eating a “treat”!
