Did you see our Christmas segment last week on healthtalks? We made Sam Gowing’s Amazeballs recipe and well.. it was quite hilarious to say the least! Ever wondered what would happen if you made a recipe and it went pear shaped ON camera? Take a look and see the segment here.
Now, not to leave you empty handed this Friday – here is the recipe!
And on the subject of Friday – happy Friday (even though it feels like… what day is it again? I’m just as confused.)
HT Totes Amazeballs Deluxe
These luxurious superfood balls will have you zinging all the way to Christmas Day with bells on. Start out with the nuts, some dried fruit and then add a selection of your favourite superfoods such as mesquite, macqui or maca. Add a hint of premium food grade essential oil like peppermint or Christmas spirit.
1 cup almonds
1 cup macadamia nuts
½ cup currants
½ cup Medjool dates
2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons cacao butter, melted – I use this brand
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon mesquite powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon organic vanilla essence
3 drops of Christmas Spirit essential oil available here
Coconut for rolling
Place all ingredients in a high speed food processor and blitz together until the mixture starts to combine and stick
Roll into golf ball sized balls, roll in coconut and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving
This balls are best kept chilled and do not like being out of the fridge for more than an hour
