Raw vegan coconut truffles with cranberries and apricot

This recipe is just sinfully delicious. Somehow when you are a raw vegan, people assume you have given up desserts forever, and give you a pitiful look. I agree with the idea that depriving myself from sweets would be a true cause for pity. And so I don’t. Who says a raw vegan couldn’t enjoy an impossibly yummy sweet snack? Today, I am busting one more myth and making some scrumptious coconut cranberry apricot truffles. I am preparing these especially for my dear fellow health and nutrition nut and partner in crime, Josie <3.

Are you hungry?

Here is what you need:

1 cup of raw cashews

1 cup of raw almonds

6 spoons of dried raw cranberries;

1 cup of chopped up dried apricots;

2 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil;

1/2 cup of coconut, shaved;

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract;

4 tablespoons of water (for binding);

Sea salt.

Preparation:

Put the cashews, almonds, and shaved coconut in a food processor and blend until you reach a finely ground consistency.

Add the water, coconut oil, cranberries, apricots, and vanilla extract to the mix, and continue to blend until you have mixed all ingredients into a thick doe.

Roll up the doe into truffle balls, place on a plate and put in the freezer for about 40 minutes.

SCRUMPTIOUS! ❤
