What You’ll Need

Makes 10 delicious pistachio and lemon energy balls

  • 4 Medjool Dates- pits removed

1. In a food processor, add the dates, and cranberries, and blend.

2. Next, add the almond meal, and the lemon zest, and blend until all that goodness is combined.

3. Finally, add the lemon juice and give the whole mixture a few pulses.

Make sure that you’re using a heavy-duty food processor. If you don’t have one, then do this step in batches, so you won’t overwork your food processor. Trust me, I’m telling you this from experience…
