Carob Cashew Raw Balls

Today’s recipe was created by culinary master Leslie White from Zeal Food here in Boulder. This decadent sweet treat was the closing morsel of yumminess that completed our cleanse-friendly meal last week, and people have been talking about it since.

Wait a minute…did we just say cleanse-friendly?!

Yes we did! Technically we’re moving into an 80:20 mood here at the Conscious Cleanse, but this is one treat that could be enjoyed in moderation (of course) on the cleanse.

Rich in antioxidants, carob is a commonly used chocolate substitute, although it does not come from the same plant. It’s also caffeine-free, unlike it’s chocolatey friend cocoa and cacao.

So dust off your food processor and get ready to roll up some raw balls that will have everyone asking for your recipe.

With carob kisses,

Carob Cashew Raw Balls

Yield: 16-20 balls


In a food processor fitted with an S-blade combine cashews, dates, vanilla, carob, maca, coconut oil, and maple syrup.

Pulse until mixture is comes together into a ball when you squeeze it in your hand. Roll 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a ball at a time. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for 2 weeks.
