Peppermint Snowballs

Peppermint Snowballs!! Raw Vegan, Sugar Free, Oil Free, Gluten Free! They are perfect for the holidays.  www.LipstickandBerries.com

These Peppermint snowballs are a MUST on your holiday menu!  My sweet friend, Aleksandra of Olenko’s Kitchen was kind enough to send me her favorite essential oils from Young Living, and I used the Peppermint in this recipe.  Fresh Coconut and Dates pair perfectly with Peppermint.  My snowballs are refined sugar free and a delicious raw treat!  It only takes a few drops to turn these raw goodies into a Peppermint Paradise!  These are one of my new favorite holiday indulgences, and I will definitely be making them every year.

Ingredients (yields 10-12)

1/2 Cup Raw Cashews, unsalted

Coconut Meat from 1 Young Thai Coconut

10 Medjool Dates, pitted

1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut + extra for topping

4 Drops Peppermint Oil (Young Living)

Directions

1.  Whack open your Coconut! Scoop out that delicious coconut meat! (Quick How-To Video HERE)

2.  Place cashews in food processor and blend until a fine/medium powder.

3.  Add coconut meat, dates, shredded coconut, and peppermint to the processor.

4.  Blend everything together and then scoop out and form balls/globes.  

5.  Roll in shredded coconut and chill in refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving.

**Try using shredded coconut in place of fresh if a fresh coconut is not available.

**Young Living Oils are organic, food grade essential oils of the highest quality.  They are therapeutic in many different ways.  They are extremely potent so it only take a few drops to add the fragrant essence to your raw dish.  Contact my friend, Aleksandra, who is distributor of Young Living Oils, and she can direct to to the perfect essential oils for you.

    How much shredded coconut do you recommend if not using fresh coconut meat?

    • Hi Linda! I have not made with with dried coconut yet, but I would suggest trying a 1/3 or 1/2 Cup of shredded and add more depending on your desired consistency. Let me know you results! XOXO Happy Holidays!
