Strawberry Beet Bliss Balls

Preparation: 30 minutes // Serves: 28

What You'll Need

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 35 grams organic freeze-dried strawberries, (double amount if rolling balls into crushed strawberries)
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 6 tbsp organic light agave
  • Zest of 1 orange + 1 tsp fresh juice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp white chia seeds
  • 1 Love Beet Organic
  • ½ cup raw coconut butter, stirred

What to Do

  1. Add the oats to a food processor and pulse until you have a finely ground oat flour. To the oats, add 1 cup of the coconut, macadamia nuts, strawberries, dates, and salt and process until all ingredients are finely ground into a flour.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together the agave, zest of ½ the orange, orange juice, vanilla, chia seeds, beet powder, and coconut butter in a small bowl, until the beet powder is hydrated and mixture becomes a thick paste.
  3. Pour beet-butter mixture over other ingredients in the processor and pulse until you have a wet dough. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Return to bowl of processor and pulse remaining dried strawberries (if using) until finely crushed.
  4. Transfer to a small bowl for rolling. Add remaining ½ cup coconut and remaining zest of ½ the orange to separate bowl. Use your fingertips to gently rub zest into coconut. Scoop and roll dough into balls (about 1 tbsp in size and roughly 1.25 inches tall), roll first with strawberries and then with coconut. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze for long-term storage. Enjoy straight from the fridge!
