Coconut & Goji Berry Bliss Balls

20170226_172406-01

 

I hit the kitchen over the weekend and created these delicious coconut and goji berry bliss balls. They are inspired by Pana chocolate’s coconut and goji berry flavour. I’m a huge fan of Pana chocolate and I love the coconut and goji berry flavour, having created bliss balls that taste similar is heaven. They go down like a treat and will definitely fix that chocolate craving. Enjoy!

 

Ingredients

1 Cup of Shredded coconut
1 Cup of Cashews
1 Tbsp of Coconut oil
½ Cup of Goji Berries
2 Tbsp of Cacao powder
10 Medjool date’s

 

Add cashews, shredded coconut, cacao powder and goji berries into a blender, blend until you get a crumbly texture. Remove pips from medjool dates, then add them into the blender. Blend until mixed thoroughly. Add coconut oil and blend until mixed. Roll into small balls. Store balls in the fridge, they will be ready to eat within 30 minutes, or you can eat them straight from the blender! Enjoy!

 

Makes 10, time required 10 minutes.
