Mulberry Balls

Spicy Sweet Treats

Naturally sweetened by mulberries alone, these easy treats are an exquisite mixture of sweet, citrus and a touch of spice.

Ingredients

⅓ Cup dried Coconut Flakes or Shredded Coconut, unsweetened
¼ tsp Allspice Powder
2 Cup Navitas Naturals Mulberries, + 1/2 Cup reserved
1 Cup Navitas Naturals Cashew Whole Nuts, + 1/3 Cup reserved
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Extract, or 1/2 Vanilla Bean
2 tsp Orange Zest (grated orange rind)
pinch Sea Salt

Directions

Soak: Cover 1 cup of the cashews with water, and let soak for about an hour. Drain and discard the water.

Combine: In food processor, combine 2 cups of mulberries, soaked cashews, coconut oil, vanilla, allspice, orange zest and sea salt. Process until well incorporated and as smooth as possible. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Add: Mix in remaining ½ cup whole mulberries and dried coconut, and knead to incorporate well. Dough should be sticky enough to hold together when pressed – if too try add a touch of water, a tablespoon at a time. Roll and squeeze into balls.

Chop: Place the remaining cashews in the food processer, and process until nuts are finely chopped. Pour onto a large plate.

Roll: Roll mulberry balls in coarse cashew powder. Will keep for about 1 week, refrigerated.

Makes about 18 – 20 balls.

Yield: 18-20
