Date and Cashew Truffles
Sweet but healthy
Medjool dates and cashews truffles are little bites of heavenly decadence! These tasty treats are guilt-free and made from four simple ingredients.
2 cups raw cashews
1½ cups soft Medjool dates pitted (If dates are hard, soak in hot water until soft.)
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
Process the cashews in a food processor until finely ground. Reserve ½ cup.
Add dates and process until well blended. Add small amounts of almond milk if needed until ingredients hold together.
Roll the mixture in your palms to make 36 1-inch balls. Combine reserved cashews and coconut and roll balls in mixture to coat.
