-Coconut Balls: Almonds, shredded coconut, dates, agave
-Date Balls: Walnuts, cashews, dates, rasisins -Chocolate Balls: Walnuts, cashews, dates, carob powder, with chunks of cacao
Process all ingredients together in FP until the mixture sticks together.
A nice touch if you have the time is to roll the balls in shredded coconut, cacao/carob powder, or lucuma.
...See what raw food and yummy fruity drinks will do?! We got crazy and played dress up in funny hats.
Another appetizer I made in the past month is the very common tortillas and guacamole. Only mine were outta this world! Why? Becauase I use the corn tortilla recipe from Gchef, Sarma Mengailis, and then dehydrated much longer to create chips. Really outstanding. I've made raw tortilla chips before and liked them but never cared to make them again. This will now be the recipe I'll use repeatedly. I think its the bell pepper that gives that great crunch.
To go with that, simple guacamole, using half a red pepper as the edible bowl. My simple guac consists of mashed avocado, chopped tomato, cilanto, lemon juice, and sundried tomatoes (soaked for about 30 mins).
So yay for entertaining with raw food in a cooked food world! I brought chocolate nut balls to a party last month and my friend and host requested that I make them again for the New Years party. Great way to get the news out. People always end up asking questions and wanting to know more.
