Almond Pulp Chocolate Balls

| Snacks, Bars and Biscuits, Uncategorized

If you regularly make almond milk, you end up with a ton of almond pulp as a byproduct….Why let it go to waste?!  This is a quick way to whip up a tasty, healthy snack while using up your almond pulp at the same time:)  This is a slightly tweaked version of this recipe.

IMG_4287IMG_4290Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups almond pulp (I make my milk with almonds with skin intact)
  • 3/4 cup soft pitted dates (I use half medjool, half normal dates)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • essence of your preference to taste.  I tried vanilla and almond essence and like them both, but rum essence is by FAR my favourite.  I put quite a lot of rum essence in, but adjust yours to suit your taste.
  • 1/4 heaped cup of dried cranberries

Instructions

First put all the dates in your food processor and blend into a paste.  Mine kind of forms a ball of mush.  Now add all ingredients except for the last 2 and process until mixed thoroughly.  Now add the cranberries and blend until chopped to your liking.  I like having little chunks of cranberries in my balls so I don’t process it too thoroughly.  Now add your essence/extract of choice until it tastes good to you.

Play around.  I have added orange zest and a few orange segments before and just added a bit more pulp to make the consistency firm enough.  You can try coconut essence too.  Try adding liquor –  I want to try amaretto soon:)  Roll them in cocoa powder or dessicated coconut if you like.  Or even roll them in hundreds of thousands!

Most of all – have fun in the kitchen!

    I don’t think you’ve added a post of the rum balls yet? So I thought I’d add my comment here:
    We unwrapped the little packets you put them in (one at a time… on different days…. and shared them!!!! (I know, hard for your munchathon-yet-you-cant-see-it-on-my-body mind to grasp, huh?!?!) and….. yummy!!! We enjoyed them very much! Thanks, T!
