There have been tons of fresh cherries available at our local supermarket lately, so I have been busy experimenting and coming up with a few new cherry recipes for you. Up until now, I only have my shared my Raw Cherry Ripe Slice and Black Forrest Smoothie.
These Raw Chocolate Cherry Bliss Balls came about when I was making my Nut Free Chocolate + Coconut No Bake Bars, as many of the ingredients are the same. These bliss balls are gluten, dairy, nut and refined sugar free, as well as super easy to make.
I have a few more cherry recipes that I plan on sharing with you. But for now, enjoy my latest creation - Raw Chocolate Cherry Bliss Balls.
Raw Chocolate Cherry Bliss Balls
- 13 medjool dates, pitted
- 2 cups shredded organic coconut
- 1 cup pitted cherries
- 1/3 cup raw cacao poweder
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender (or food processor) and process until well combined and the mixture sticks together. Roll the mixture into small balls and place on a baking tray, lined with baking paper and place in the refrigerator or freezer to set.
