Ingredients

  • 13 medium dates, Medjool
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup cashews

Filling

  • 3 medium lime
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/3 cup banana
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream

Instructions

  • Remove the pits from your dates and add to a food processor with the coconut flakes and cashews; blitz to combine.  The mixture should be thick. Remove from the food processor.
  • Zest 2 of the limes and then juice all 3 limes into your food processor or blender.  Add avocado, banana and coconut cream and pulse to combine until smooth.
  • Pour into a bowl and place in the freezer.
  • Meanwhile, roll out your date mixture onto parchment paper or take pieces and flatten into circles.
  • Once your lime filling has frozen enough to scoop, scoop out small balls (a little bigger than a teaspoon) and place them on a plate. Freeze again.
  • Place each frozen ball of lime filling on circle of date mixture, then wrap the date mixture around the filling. Remove any excess and gently roll into a smooth ball.  Place back on the plate and freeze until ready to serve. Repeat for each energy bite.
  • To serve, remove from freezer a few minutes before eating.  Enjoy!
