Date Truffles made with my CSN Stores food processor!

The food processor that CSN Stores sent me to review came in.... and it's awesome!

The first thing I decided to whip up with it was date truffles! If you've never made these you should give them a try, so tasty, easy, AND healthy! 

All you do is throw some dates, nuts, and dried fruit in your lovely food processor - no cooking required! 

My beautiful processor along with my truffle supplies.

I added whole dates, cashews, and an organic dried fruit mix that had apples, pineapple, pears,  and a few more fruits I'm forgetting. I never measure, just add until it looks right. Mine turned out a little dry so I also added a tiny scoop of coconut oil so they would stick together.

Look at how well they blended up!  I was so impressed with how easy the processor was to use and fast to clean, it also has suction cups on the bottom so it doesn't slid when you're using it. I used it to make cauliflower "rice" too, worked like a charm!

Then you just roll them into balls and coat with coconut flakes or ground nuts or ground date powder! Yum! The whole family loves these and this is our "candy" of choice. They freeze great too!

Always start with date but then you can add almonds or walnuts or peanuts and then add in chocolate or dried cherries or lemon pulp, be creative!
