"Falsetesers" A Clean Eating Chocolate Dessert - Eating Clean & Looking Lean
Here's a recipe for a super easy all natural dessert, which looks good enough to serve at a dinner party.
Inspired by Nia Shank's Brownie Balls recipe, I changed a couple of ingredients and got busy in the kitchen. Be sure to check out Nia's website, she has a wealth of fitness knowledge and has some really great clean eating recipes.
I originally called them Chocolate Balls .....but then thought better of it! While struggling to come up with a suitably non-pornographic name a friend of mine Danny 'The Cheesecake Assassin' Mitchell, MMA fighter extraordinaire and lover of all things sweet, suggested Falsetesers... yes! A clean eating alternative to Maltesers....I like it, thanks Danny!
Read on the for recipe:
130g dates (weighed after the stone was removed)
20g cocoa powder (add more or less to your own taste)
1tsp vanilla extract (not essence, urgh!)
Remove the stones from the dates.
Finely chop the dates and nuts in a food processor. My processor is tiny, so I had to do this in batches. As all clean eaters will know.. you spend a lot of time chopping! I really must invest in a full size food processor.
Add the cocoa powder and vanilla extract, and pulse again in the processor.
Your mixture should now look like this and should almost hold it's shape when you mould it together, now add water sparingly until you can form the mixture into balls.
Divide the mixture into balls and arrange on a tray. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours....and your Falsetesers are ready!
I served the Falsetesers with cherries and a sprinkle of dessicated coconut, but strawberries or orange segments would work equally well.
Enjoy, they're really delicious and prove that clean eating does not have to be bland or boring. Let's finish with a foodie type close-up!
