This is one of my favorites due to the variety of fruit and bright flavors. It is a little bite of sunshine that is packed with flavor.



  • 1/2 cup dried tropical fruits (I used mandarin oranges, pineapple, and mango)
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and blend until the nuts are well chopped and a thick “dough” starts to form, about 3-5 minutes of processing. If the ingredients are chopped into super small pieces but the dough isn’t coming together, try adding a teaspoon of water at a time (up to a tablespoon or two) to encourage everything to come together.
  2. When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor. Take 1 large tablespoon of the “dough” and roll it into a ball in between your hands. Repeat with remaining dough. I Keep the balls in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer much longer.
