  • food processor, blender or Thermomix

  • 105 g (¾ cup) raw almonds or roasted almonds

Ingredients Info: 
  • Dates - you can use either dried and pitted dates or medjool dates in this recipe. If using medjool dates, you may need to add extra almonds as they have a soft, moist texture when compared to dried pitted dates. 
  • Cocoa powder - choose regular unsweetened cocoa powder or cacao powder.
  • Strawberry fruit spread - I used the St Dalfour brand of strawberry fruit spread. This spread is made from 100% fruit with no added sugar or preservatives.
  • Almonds - you can use either raw almonds or roasted almonds for this recipe. I generally use raw almonds.
  • Desiccated coconut - this is a fine, dry coconut that is perfect for coating the bliss balls in.
