Easter is THE best time to indulge guilt-free in all the goodness that is chocolate, but at some point you might be ready to reign it in ;-)….. but what to do about those sugar cravings?!

 

This recipe is a spicy take on traditional Date and Coconut Balls, but with the addition of Tulsi Licorice Spice Tea. This blend of herbs is great for when we’re craving sugar, thanks to licorice and cinnamon’s naturally sweet flavour, but it also provides metabolic support, and nourishes the pancreas, the organ that governs our sugar metabolism. This combination of herbs is great for digestion, your adrenals and stress – perfect for Easter-recovery!

Tulsi Licorice Spice Date & Coconut Balls

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut (try for the organic one minus the sulphites)
  • 1 tablespoon of ghee (or coconut oil)
  • Contents of 3 – 4 Tulsi Licorice Spice teabags

 

Method:

Finely chop the dates. Put them into a mixing bowl and soak them in boiled water for about 30 seconds, then drain. Allow it to cool for a minute. Add the coconut and ghee and as you gently knead into a ‘dough’. Sprinkle through the Tulsi Licorice Spice from the emptied tea bags and combine it throughout.

Roll the ‘dough’ into small balls about the size of a walnut. Then, roll each ball into some of the dessicated coconut and put them in your favourite bowl.

Put your balls into the fridge to firm up. You will then have a super sweet, guilt-free snack that goes perfectly with your cup of afternoon tea!

Makes about 16 balls.

Happy eating!
