Healthy Vegan Fudge Balls

Healthy Fudge Balls [Vegan]

Good morning, friends!

A really quick and easy recipe today as I start to wind down before taking time to myself before and after baby. More on that later when I have a bit more energy to write. I’ve been so drained lately (rightfully so) with a mix of anxiousness before our little one’s birthday.

To try and keep my energy up, I made a batch of these healthy fudge bites/balls whatever you want to call them. Dates for the energy, of course. Also dates in general because I heard it eases labor… so along with my caramel date smoothie, these guys have been my go-to.

Cashews for protein. Dates for energy (and ahem, labor). Cocoa powder for my sweet tooth. ;)

Recipe

You will need:

  • 1-2 cups pitted dates, soaked in hot water for about 10 minutes
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder, set aside in a bowl

To make:

  • Soak pitted dates in hot water for about 10 minutes, or until softened.
  • In food processor, blend raw cashews, cocoa powder, and salt until a dust is formed.
  • Drain soaking dates and add to processor – blend until smooth. If your “batter” is too wet to work with, simply add more cashew dust as needed.
  • Roll batter into 1-inch balls and run through the bowl of plain cocoa powder.
  • Allow to freeze for about an hour.
  • Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer.

Super easy and only 4 ingredients. Give them a try! xx bianca
