Plum Rum Balls

Rum balls are a Christmas essential, but they don’t need lots of sugar and condensed milk to taste good! QG nectar adds the perfect richness to these healthy Plum Rum Balls.

What you’ll need (Makes 10 balls):

  • 2 ½ cup almond meal
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup Nutrafruit Queen Garnet Nectar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • A splash of rum (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp homemade date paste (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • Optional: handful of pomegranate seeds for decoration

How to make date paste:

  • Chop up 14 pitted dates into little pieces
  • Place chopped up dates to blender
  • Add 325mL warm water to blender
  • Blend until a smooth consistency is reached
  • This can be stored in a jar in the fridge as a healthy alternative to sugar in recipes!

How to make the rum balls:

Add the almond meal, chia seeds, and cacao powder to a mixing bowl and stir to distribute evenly
In a separate mixing bowl, add all of the other ingredients (except for the desiccated coconut) and mix together
Gradually stir the ingredients from both bowls together
Roll the balls in the desiccated coconut
Stack balls on a plate and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds for a pop of colour
