The fact that today is the day before Valentines Day, is pure co-incidence. But why not use it as an excuse to share the love and eat healthy raw cacao and walnut balls of deliciousness…

1 cup pitted medjool dates
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1/3 cup raw organic cacao powder
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tablespoon chia seeds
pinch of salt
dash of whiskey

Add all the ingredients together and mix in a food processor.
Divide the mixture up and roll into the size of a golf ball.
Roll the balls in shredded coconut.

These cacao balls of fire are not only super healthy, but they somehow make you feel more in love with the world. Raw cacao was discovered many centuries ago in South America and was known to the Aztecs ‘as the food of the gods.’ Apart from reducing the risk of heart disease and high cholesterol (along with a glass of red wine) it has been scientifically proven that daily intakes of these two substances will increase your life span and in the case of raw cacao – improve fertility.

Well in that case, let the love begin!
