Raw Food Recipe: Cherry Almond Truffles


Makes about 24 truffles ~ $.32 per truffle





Ingredients
  • 1 cup cherries, dehydrated ($.75)
  • 2 cups almonds ($5.00)
  • 1 cups dates, pitted and chopped ($2.00) pinch salt


These are pretty, understated and elegant. It's another recipe from my Spring Raw e Book, but it's perfect for this time of year and makes a great treat for any holiday. To make them, dehydrate a cup of cherries. Just place on a lined dehydrator tray and dry for a few hours, until the cherries are shrunken but still pliable and not hard or brittle.



Directions
  • In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the almonds until finely ground. This takes a minute or so.
  • Add in the dates and dehydrated cherries
  • Process again until the mixture begins to clump together.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out even sized balls, and roll between hands to shape.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


Makes about 24 truffles.

    1. Hi Lisa, I bought them frozen and dehydrated them until they were kind of leathery. Much less expensive, and nothing but cherries.
