RAW CHOCOLATE BALLS (enhance good mood) 

These bite-size treats pack a nutritional punch. Mood-enhancing raw cacao is high in antioxidant flavonoids that ward off illness and infection.

Combined with coconut oil for a stronger immune system, metabolism and digestive system, and sweetened naturally with dates, they’re a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack to curb your appetite.

– 4 large Medjool dates, pits removed and chopped
– 2 tbs coconut oil
– 1/2 cup raw almonds, finely chopped
– 2 tbs raw cacao powder
– 2 tbs cacao butter
– 2 tbs shredded unsweetened coconut
– 1tsp TurmeriX

Place dates in a blender and mix to a paste. Heat coconut oil in a pan over low heat, until melted. Add to blender with almonds, cacao powder and butter and mix. Place in a bowl. Wet hands with water and roll teaspoons of mixture into balls, then roll in coconut. Set in the fridge for 1 hour. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
