Tantalizing and Detoxing Truffles

I have been slowly working on my second e-book. I have had to delay my second project due to continued issues with torn tendons and ligaments in my left ankle. I have decided to publish here on my blog one of my featured desserts in my next book Raw Soups and Living Salads. The book will be focusing mainly on cleansing salads and soups, but will have at the end a few very special desserts.

I miss blogging and want to offer something for my viewers as I take this time to mend.

Sesame seeds are very high in calcium and great for you. These were so good I was so delighted to come up with something that satisfied the sweet tooth, but was low in sugar and had ingredients which will encourage healing.


1 cup apricots
1 inch ginger root grated
1 cup almonds
¼ cup walnuts
¼ cup pecans
¼ cup flax meal
3 tsp honey
1 T almond milk
dash of sea salt
2 T cacao powder
¼ cup sesame seeds

Process nuts until ground the add the apricots and ginger.
Add all the remaining ingredients. Shape in the balls and roll them in white sesame seeds.
Store them in the freezer in a sealed container for up to three weeks.

These will last up to three weeks in the freezer and if I had a craving for something sweet I will take one out and it satisfies that need. Sometimes I make a cup of herbal tea to go with it for a snack either mid morning or before bed.
