Sour Cherry Bliss Balls


  • 1 1/2 cups cherry juice
  • 1 cup dried dates
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • extra cacao powder (for rolling the balls into)


  • Combine cherry juice and dates into a saucepan on moderate heat.
  • Allow the mixture to reduce until dates and juice form a dough. You don't want to leave the mixture too moist as this will affect the consistency of the balls.
  • When ready, remove saucepan from heat and add coconut, almond meal and cacao. This should solidify the mixture and allow for easier rolling.
  • Divide mixture into 12 even portions, make into balls and roll into cacao to finish.
