turmeric date balls

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 14 balls


  • 1/3 cup coconut butter (see how to make your own in the directions below)
  • 1 cup medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp nut butter ( suggest almond butter)
  • 1 tsp cinnmaon
  • 1/2- 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt


  • To make the coconut butter: measure out 1 cup of unsweetened, shredded coconut and blend in a food processor or blender until smooth (~ 7 minutes). You will have to scrape down the sides with a spatula occasionally to get all the coconut incorporated.  1 cup of shredded coconut blended/processed for 7 minutes will make 1/3 cup of coconut butter (just what you need for this recipe).
  • In the same food processor you made the coconut butter in, combine the dates and cashews. Blend until a chunky texture forms. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until well combined. Start with 1/2 tsp of turmeric, and then taste the mixture and decide if you want to add more (up to 1 tsp total).
  • Begin to shape the batter into balls. The size is completely up to you. My batter created 14 balls (roughly 1 1/2 Tbsps in size). Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Keep balls stored in a container in the fridge or freezer.
  • Keep balls stored in a container in the fridge or freezer.


These bliss balls don't hold their form if they are sitting out at room temperature (or hotter) for a long period of time. Keep stored in the fridge or freezer for best results.
