Sweet Indulgence

Well, the season of indulgence is upon us so here is a lovely treat so you won't feel left out. If you are stuck for gift ideas for friends or family, why not consider making these yummy treats yourself?  I make extra and put them into pretty presentation boxes as a healthy treat for my friends. Trust me big and little kids will love them. The thing about these treats they are so damn good, you may not want to share them.  

They have a lovely citrus flavour, smothered in shredded coconut. The skin of citrus fruit is actually the most beneficial part as it contains the most vitamin C and bioflavonoids.

This is probably the easiest recipe for truffles around. They are so simple – you just just mix the ingredients together. I use the blank screen that comes with the juicer, as it creates a tighter mixture that sticks well together.

Although these truffles are quite luscious, you won’t feel heavy after eating them.

 

What you need                                                                                         

  • 2 cups of pecan nuts, soaked and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, soaked and rinsed
  • 1 cup dates, soaked in orange juice
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • Juice and rind of 1 orange

What you do

  • Soak the nuts and seeds overnight and rinse.
  • Grate the rind of the orange in processor.
  • Add all ingredients except the shredded coconut to your juicer through the blank screen, or use a blender.
  • Roll the mix into balls and coat each ball in shredded coconut.
  • Refrigerate for 20 minutes – and try not to indulge too much!
