|Acai Berry Powder|
Although optional, you can add substantial nutrients to this recipe using the superfood acai berry powder. Place the chopped dates, almonds and acai berry powder in a food processor and blitz until they are grounded and mixed. Pulse until they have formed a paste.
Transfer the dates and almond paste to a mixing bowl and add the cashew butter, almond extract and blueberries. Mix with a spoon until the ingredients are well incorporated. The blueberries should be crushed to release their juice when mixing.
Roll the mix into a ball and place in the fridge for 5 minutes.
Next, take a tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a small bite-sized ball. Repeat until the mixture has finished.
Place the truffles in the freezer for at least 1 hour before serving.
