Paradise Balls (raw, vegan, GF)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Paradise Balls were created when I had dehydrated some fresh cherries and pineapples!  It reminds me of the tropics.  Bob was popping these like little Bon Bons.   The picture doesn’t do them justice.  They had a bit of a pink/purple hue to them from the cherries.


  • 2 cups dried shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 3 Tbsp raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup raw cold pressed coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple
  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts


  1. Process cashews in food processor fitted with the “S” blade until it is a fine meal.  Be gentle so you don’t over process the nuts or they will release too much oil.  IF this should happen, no worries, continue processing until you have a “butter”.
  2. Add coconut, cherries, pineapple, coconut oil, and agave until well mixed.
  3. Add macadamia nuts last. Pulse to just break them in small pieces.  You don’t want to create a paste.
  4. Blend till macs are nice and small. Be careful to not over process.  If you do this will release too much oil from the nut.
  5. Shape into small scoops
  6. Chill until firm.
