If you’re an SNL fan, you probably can’t talk about one of our cleanser’s all-time favorite bite-size snacks without busting up laughing.
To get the inside joke, be sure to check out SNL’s Sweddy Balls skit.
Our beloved Joy Balls (recipe in our book, page 260) have been known not only as a life-saving snack during the cleanse, but also a source of ongoing office humor, banter, and silly text messages between cleansers.
Is it us or do the words “nut balls” just make you smile? Our ball obsession has led us to make several incarnations of the original Joy Balls.
Protein-Packed Almond Butter Balls (in our book page 261)
Nut Free Joy Balls
And new today…Amazeballs!
One of our good friends asked us to make a nut ball recipe by this name and we jumped at the opportunity.
An 80:20 recipe because of the cacao, we hope you enjoy them and leave us a comment below! Are you giddy for nut balls? Let’s share some laughs below.
Keep on smiling,
Yield: 12 balls
2 cups walnuts (you can substitute almonds or cashews)
1 cup dates, pitted
¼ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. cardamom
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 TB cacao powder
2- 3 TB tahini
Black and white sesame seeds to coat
In a food processor fitted with an S-blade combine walnuts, dates, sea salt, cinnamon, cardamom, vanilla, cacao, and tahini. Process until mixture is fine and comes together into a ball when you squeeze it in your hand. Roll 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a ball. On a small plate combine black and white sesame seeds. Roll each ball into the seeds to coat. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for 2 weeks.
