Now that Millie's on the countdown to her big wedding day (some sources say she's getting married in September) she's turned to raw energy balls with cacao to help her stave off those chocolate cravings.

These tasty, squidgy balls of coconut, almond and raw cacao powder (what chocolate is before all the milk and sugar is added) are surprisingly sweet, easy to make and can be filled with all sorts of yummy ingredients like fruit, superfood chia seeds and goji berries.

To make a batch you'll need...

Raw cacao powder (high in antioxidants)
Coconut oil
Dessicated coconut
Dried dates
Ground almond powder

Method:

Firstly, you'll need to soak the dates in waterfor 20 minutes so they soften slightly. In a food processor blend the almonds, coconut and cacao powder.

Melt the coconut oil in a pan and slowly add the dates and melted oil to the food processor, whisking every 20 seconds. Blend completely until a thick paste is made.

Roll the mixture into bit size balls with your hands then place into the freezer for half an hour, then refrigerate until you want to eat. These bite-sized treats can be covered in chia seeds or goji berries for some extra superfoody action!
