Happiness In Every Bite!

Hello there!Β 

Today I’m sharing a recipe so simple that will take you 5 minutes to make it and will make your day even sweeter! This are super easy, fast and simple “cookie balls” that you can eat for breakfast or snack.
I made this with some banana milk and I was in heaven! It felt so “homey”.

Cookies
6 medjool dates, pitted
1/2 cup dried figs
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons dried coconut
1 teaspoon fresh orange zest

Banana Milk
2 ripe bananas
Water as needed

First you need to mix the cookie ingredients in a food processor until you have a dough. Take the dough out and give it shape. Let the cookie balls sit while you make the milk.
Blend the bananas with the water, adding more or less, until you have a milk-like cosistency and the bananas are completely blended. You can add a date if you want it sweeter.
Chill and enjoy cookies with milk.

I hope you start your day with lots of fruits and that you try this yummy cookies! Yesterday I had a durian feast and I can’t stop telling you how much you’re missing if you haven’t tried it yet! If there’s durian in heaven count me in! Haha.. Into another topic, I’ve been looking for a champion juicer lately, I want to be my own Santa Claus this christmas and I’m dying to have a CJ so if anyone knows about a good special let me know!

And just to finish this post don’t forget about your daily exercise! Which is as important as eating properly and having a good night sleep. According to Harvard’s Men’s Health Watch “aerobic exercise is the key for your head, just as it is for your heart. It has a unique capacity to exhilarate and relax, to provide stimulation and calm, to counter depression and dissipate stress. Endurance athletes commonly experience the restorative power of exercise, and this has been verified in clinical trials that have used exercise to treat anxiety and depression.” So this is one more great tip to add some happiness to your daily life!

Have a lovely day everybody!

  1. Thanks for that great idea! My husband works at a boring factory so I made them for him to take to work tomorrow to share with the guys in his work cell. I also will take this one to friends houses. I’m the only person eating raw in my group of friends. So it will be nice to have something we can eat and enjoy together besides salad.
    Thanks again, you have such good and simple things to make.
    Keep warm
    Love Liende

    • Well I hope you all enjoy them! I try to do very simple but tasty things. I believe you don’t need tons of nuts or oils to make yummy raw food. By the way, I don’t know if you’ve seen already my recipe for carrot cupcakes in one of my first posts, they are a hit! Hope you try them.
      Have a great week!

  2. Udate- the cookies were a big hit at my husbands job.
    But I need to know if there’s a way to keep the banana milk from turning dark if you have to make it ahead of time?
    Should I add some lemon juice to it?
    I made it last night put it in the fridge and by today it was much darker.
    Thanks again

    • I’m so happy to hear that!!! Simplicity never fails :) I’ve never done it before a couple of hours, I prefer it fresh and also it is really fast and easy to make so normally it takes me no time. I’m not sure about the lemon it might work but bananas most of the time get dark very fast so I would suggest fresh or one hour ahead is best
      Thank YOU!
