These Pistachio Butter Balls are filled with goodness — they’re gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, vegan, full of healthy fats, guilt free, and best of all… they’re FESTIVE, perfect for this time of year.
Note :: this recipe makes 12 x balls

2 tbsp. crushed pistachios
Combine all filling ingredients in a food processor until combined.
Spoon mixture into a container & freeze for 30 mins or until firm.
Remove filling mixture from freezer and roll into balls (about a tsp. of mixture per ball)
Place rolled balls in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Melt coating chocolate in microwave.
Remove balls from freezer & one by one, use a toothpick to dip balls into melted chocolate.
Sprinkle crushed pistachios and 2 goji berries on top of each ball.
