Cashew and Lime Raw Balls

Are you looking for a delicious but healthy snack that you can take with you on the go or enjoy as a midweek pick-me-up? Then look no further as these Cashew and Lime Raw Balls are a perfect choice! Both cashews and sunflower seeds are packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and have numerous health benefits, including lowering cholesterol and high blood pressure. I prepared these Cashew and Lime Raw Balls with dates, so they are naturally sweetened and ready to give you an energy boost whenever you need it. And finally, the lime zest gives it all a fresh tangy citrus flavour and a fun green colour! 😃 💚

DIRECTIONS


1. Blend the cashews, sunflower and chia seeds in a food processor/chopper for about 1 minute.

Tip: If you prefer, you can swap the sunflower seeds for pumpkin seeds. This would give these Cashew and Lime Raw Balls a greenish colour.
