Mmm all the summer feels in one bite! These superfood pineapple cashew coconut balls are perfect for on-the-go snacking, potlucks and parties, and a great addition to your breakfast bowls or as a dessert.

Enough talking, here’s what you’ll need to make them (serves about 7 balls):

  • 1/2 cup of cashew nut milk pulp (this was leftover from my homemade cashew milk using my Ellie’s Best Nut Milk Bag– use my code ‘munchinspo’ for a discount!)
  • 4 dried baby pineapples (from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1-2 tbsp of honey or sweetener of choice (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 tbsp of hemp seeds
  • (OPTIONAL) 1 tsp of maca powder
  • (OPTIONAL) 1 scoop of collagen

This nut milk bag is so great! I’ve been using it to make my own milk and it’s so much cheaper this way. You can also be very creative with it…I’ve made plain cashew milk, cinnamon vanilla hemp milk, spiced almond milk, and even a cauliflower pizza crust!

These are the main ingredients. The star of this are these dried baby pineapples! It adds such a great texture and flavor to the whole thing.

I tend to add superfoods in almost everything I make because why not? It gives it extra nutrition and doesn’t take away from the flavor šŸ™‚

This is how my cashew milk pulp looks like by the way. It’s a soft dough-like consistency which made it perfect for making these energy balls!

Throw all the ingredients into a food processor (if you’re lazy like me) or mix them in a large bowl.

Pulse or mix until well combined and cookie-dough like.

Slightly wet your hands (so they won’t stick as much) and roll them into about 2 inch balls.

I decided to take it a step further and coat some of them in toasted coconut chips, but this is completely up to you šŸ™‚

I have to say though, it adds a really nice crunch!

Place them in the refrigerator or freezer until firm. If you put it in the freezer, make sure to thaw them before eating.
