Fun to make; fun to eat; and they’re good for you!
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 1 1/2 cups Medjool dates*, pitted
- zest and juice from 3 key limes
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
- Add the almonds and cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until nuts are finely chopped (but do not pulse too long, you do not want the nuts to turn into a paste). Add the dates, lime juice and zest. Pulse until the dates are finely chopped and the mixture starts to clump. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll in coconut to coat outside of the balls. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
*If Medjool dates are not available, any other pitted date will work.
