Ingredients for the Pina Colada Energy Bites Recipe
- ½ cup raw macadamia nuts
- ½ cup raw cashews
- ½ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut + ¼ cup for rolling
- 2 packets (½ cup) Apricot Power Coconut Almond Superfood Mix
- 8 pitted medjool dates
- 2 oz dried, unsweetened pineapple chunks
- ¼ cup hemp seeds
- ¼ cup nonfat or low-fat coconut-flavored Greek yogurt (or vanilla if you can’t find coconut)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tsp rum extract (optional)
- Add macadamia nuts, cashews, half-cup coconut, and Apricot Power Coconut Almond Superfood Mix to a bowl of a food processor, and process until finely chopped and crumbly.
- Add remaining ingredients, and process until a sticky, uniform “dough” forms (may collect into a ball on the side of the food processor bowl).
- Form the dough into uniform, 1-inch balls, and then roll each in remaining coconut (may have to process coconut first to make flakes smaller).
- Place balls in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to set, or store balls in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy!
- Yields approximately 20 bites
