Raspberries are awesome! They’re high in antioxidants such as Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid that fight against cancer, heart and circulatory disease and age-related decline. Plus their rich colour and their sweet but tart flavour make them perfect for desserts!

These delicious morsels are great for 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members as they’re easy to make and a great snack for either at home or when you’re out and about.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 3 medjool dates seeds removed
Chocolate coating (optional)
  • 40 g dark chocolate – use 70% cacao
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • This amount will coat half of the balls – double coating recipe to coat all

Method

  1. Blitz the almonds in food processor/blender of choice. 
  2. Add remaining ingredients to food processor/blender and blitz. You may need to stop and scrape down sides of dish then continue to blitz further.
  3. Once well combined, roll into balls.

If you want to use the chocolate coating….
  1. Melt chocolate using your preferred method.
