If concerns over spirulina contamination have previously led you to avoid this beneficial green superfood, I recommend trying the one from Sari Foods. Sari Foods’ spirulina has a very clean flavor that mirrors its deep blue-green color.
As for Sari Foods Natural Vitamin C powder, it is made from Acerola Cherries, which happen to be one of the single best food sources of vitamin C and each teaspoon of this organic powder contains 500mg of vitamin C. Since it’s actually a whole food powder and not an extracted nutrient, it contains the full complex of the vitamin C family, including the naturally occurring bioflavanoids that enhance its effects. In addition to boosting immunity, vitamin C is also supports healthy collagen production, aids in detoxification and acts as a protective antioxidant.
Ingredients: makes 25-30 truffles.
- 1½ cup medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup raw walnuts, chopped
- ¼ cup raw pecans, chopped
- ¼ cup nut or seed butter of choice
- 2Tbsp dark cocoa powder or raw cocoa powder
- 1 Tbsp Sari Foods spirulina
- 1 Tbsp Sari Foods acerola cherry powder
Place the dates and nuts in the bowl of a food processor and process until crumbly.
Add the oats and nut butter, and process again until well combined.
Add the cocoa powder, spirulina and acerola cherry powder. Process again until everything is mixed well.
Test the "dough" to see if it holds together when pinched. If not, add more dates, two at a time, until the dough can be shaped without falling apart.
Roll the dough into balls to form truffles. Place the truffles on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
