Raw Vegan Bliss Balls

I loooooove Raw Vegan Deserts, this one is so easy to put together. Sometimes I add rum essence to create Rum Balls, or grate orange rind into the mix with a squeeze of orange juice to make a chocolaty orange version.This recipe uses Certified Organic Pure Raw Cacao, rather than regular cocoa. Raw Cacao is a Mayan Super Food, it is high in anti-oxidants and magnesium.

1 cup of almonds

1 1/2 cup dates

1 cup dessicated coconut

2 tablespoons raw cacao

pinch of salt

1 tsp rum essence/or grated orange rind and a squeeze of orange juice

1 tsp vanilla extract

In a blender process almonds until powder. Add dates and pulse to combine. Mix other ingredients through the processor or stir to combine with a spoon. Form the mixture into balls and then roll in coconut. Refrigerate 0r eat immediately!
