Vanilla Goji Berry Balls

Posted by on Jul 11, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

Sometimes in between meals I’m looking for a snack that is light, but filling enough to tide me over to the next meal. These raw vanilla goji balls fit the bill perfectly.  They are naturally sweet and gluten free, packed with nutritious super foods, and are totally yum.  I love the combination of sweet, aromatic vanilla with tart goji berries. Plus, they are a great way to use the pulp left over from making almond milk!

Ingredients
  1. Pulp leftover from making almond milk
  2. 1 cup pitted dates
  3. 1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
  4. 1/8 tsp salt
  5. 1/4 cup whole almonds
  6. 1/4 cup goji berries
Instructions
  1. Place almond pulp, dates, vanilla and salt in your food processor and process until it the dates are broken up well and the mixture holds together.
  2. Add almonds and pulse a few times to break them up just a little bit! Be careful not to over process, you want the texture that the almonds add.
  3. Add goji berries and pulse one or two times to incorporate, but not really break up the berries.
  4. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out some of the mixture and roll it in your clean hands to form a ball.
  5. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used.
Notes
  1. If you don't half almond pulp, you could substitute it for 3/4 cup almond meal and add a little water.
  2. If your dates are a little tough, you may want to soak them in warm water of about 10 minutes to soften them up. Drain them well before using them.
