: ☺


Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground. Clean the food processor, then pulse the pitted, dried dates, and combine with the ground almonds. Add orange juice to get a thick mixture.

Spread the coconut shreds in a shallow dish. Form the date-almond-orange mix into 1-inch balls, and roll in coconut shreds.

  • You can use cashews instead of almonds.
  • If you like sour taste, try this dessert with lemon juice or any kind of sour jam instead of orange juice.
  • Perfect dessert for families – kids love to help to make these delicious little balls, and eat them afterwards!
