I don’t know about you, but I don’t always want to bake my desserts. When I am able to whip up something quick and sweet without the process of baking, I do! The best thing about making frozen or cold desserts is that you only have to worry about the prep time. Often when we bake cookies and breads you have to worry about prep time AND baking time, which can be lengthy and time consuming.
These dough balls are so quick and easy to make. All you need is a few simple ingredients, a blender or food processor, and a freezer.
These balls are gluten free, dairy free, grain free and refined sugar free (option for sugar free)
Makes 12-15 balls
1 cup cashews, soaked, drained and rinsed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup + 3 tbsp canned coconut milk
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup cacao powder
In a food processor or blender, blend the cashews, vanilla extract, 1/4 cup canned coconut milk, coconut sugar and coconut flour. Once smooth and blended, remove half of the batter and place in a bowl. Add the maple syrup, 3 tbsp of canned coconut milk, and cacao powder to the food processor and blend with the other half of batter until smooth. Then remove the rest of the batter from the processor and place in a separate bowl. Place both bowls of dough into the freezer for about 30 minutes. Remove from freezer, then begin taking 1 tbsp of each dough, and begin to roll together to create a ball. They should be half chocolate and half vanilla mixture combined. Repeat until all the dough is used. Store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for longer.
