Strawberry & Cream Balls

I wanted something not so sweet that still felt like a treat. I am obsessed with using freeze dried fruit in recipes lately because they look so pretty and they add a delicious tart tasting twist. Also, berries are full of antioxidants which everyone when can benefit from.

I used Tocos in the recipe below which if you have never tried you really must. It tastes like a delicious malt milkshake. It’s naturally creamy and sweet and full of health benefits. It’s a creamy skin nutrient. Tocos, short for tocotrienols, is a fat-soluble relative of Vitamin E that's commonly found in certain oils, rice, wheat, barley, rye, and oats. You'll usually see it in the form of brown rice–bran solubles: It's the fat- and water-soluble portions (minus the carbohydrates and fiber parts) of the hard shell that surrounds a grain of rice. It helps hydrate the skin and connective tissues and combats oxidative stress (which can break down the body's natural collagen).

If you want a sweeter ball you have the option of adding a couple more dates. The recipe as printed is more on the tart side which I personally LOVE. They still feel like a treat. I want one as I write this :)

I sprinkle extra crushed strawberries on top to make the balls extra pretty :)

How to cook Strawberry & Cream Balls

  1. Blend rolled oats, tocos and freeze-dried strawberries until flour consistency. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the shredded coconut to the oat/strawberry/tocos mixture. Mix together. 
  3. Add coconut oil, almond butter and dates to the blender. Blend at medium speed until a smooth consistency. Transfer to the mixing bowl that contains the dry ingredients. Combine with a spoon or your hands. 
  4. Roll into balls and place them on a wax paper-lined tray/plate. Place the tray in the freezer and allow balls to firm (approximately 40 minutes). Then transfer the balls into a air tight container or jar. Store in the freezer or the fridge.
