Chocolate is the ultimate comfort food, and as we come up to Easter there’s lots of it around. Why not try these bliss balls, which are don’t have to be a guilty pleasure, because the right kind of chocolate can actually be good for you…

Cherry Active is Montemorency (sour) Cherry juice which contains antioxidants and can be sourced from good health food shops or online from The Natural Dispensary.  Use my name in the Practitioner Box and the code CPPL10 for a 10% discount.

Makes 25-30 balls (2 per serving)

Ingredients:

  • 125g ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (aka Linseeds)
  • 10 Medjool dates with stones removed (normal dates are fine, but Medjool are nicer)

  • 60g melted coconut oil
  • 60g raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp sour cherry juice concentrate (like Cherry Active) or unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Unsweetened shredded/ desiccated coconut to decorate

Method:

  1. Blitz the cherries and dates in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to blitz until it starts to form a dough.
  3. Roll into small balls and coat with shredded coconut.
  4. Freeze to firm up.
