  • 16 ounces of dates
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder unsweetened
  • 4 tablespoons of pecan meal
  • ¼ cup chopped cashews
  • ¼ cup of chopped tart cherries
  • 2 tablespoons of Once Again Creamy Cashew Butter
  • 4 tablespoons of a greens powder of your choice


  1. Start by adding dates to your food processor.
  2. Even though you can purchase dates without the pits, I always recommend checking each one by hand before adding them to the food processor.
  3. Pulse them several times until you achieve a ball-like consistency.
  4. Next add cashew butter, greens powder, pecan meal and cashews. Lastly, remove dough from food processor and mix in the tart cherries.
  5. You may use your hands to fold in the cherries, just make sure to wet your hands so the mixture doesn’t stick to them.
  6. Roll the mixture  into balls and keep them in the refrigerator for up  to 10 days. Or freeze them for up to 45 days. (They may last longer, but so far I have only savored  their flavor and consistency after having them stored for a maximum of 45 days.)
