I don’t know about you, but I’m looking for some holiday food gifts to make. They need to be easy to make and delicious to eat. I have a few great recipes to share the next few weeks, so we can get our holiday making done together!
The first recipe in this series is from Emily von Euw’s new book, 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks. The book would be a great gift all by itself, but you could be super-sweet and make them some of these Green Earth Orbs to go with it.
These are similar to what I think of as raw truffles. All you need is a food processor and enough time to shape the mixture into balls and then roll into cinnamon and cocoa.
Emily’s book is full of sweet juices, savory juices, sweet smoothies, savory smoothies, all kinds of vegan milk and milk shakes, with some energy bars and healthy snacks thrown in for good measure. The photographs are beautiful too.
I did receive this book for free, but all the opinions are my own.
Green Earth Orbs
- 1 cup 31 g walnuts
- 1 cup 64 g pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup 72 g chia seeds
- 1 cup 152 g pitted dates
- 2 tbsp 27 g coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Pulse the nuts and seeds into powder in a food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients and process until it all begins to stick together.
- Try rolling a small handful into a ball. If it works, roll the rest of the mixture into balls. If it is still too crumbly, add more coconut oil or dates.
- Roll the balls in coconut and cinnamon for extra flavor and nutrition.
