It’s giveaway time! An exciting cookbook giveaway and recipe to share with you today. Are you excited?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are well familiar with Emily von Euw of This Rawsome Vegan Life. Her 1st cookbook, Rawsome Vegan Baking, released last March and was a raging success. Now she is back with another one, 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks. They are all incredibly simple recipes with few ingredients. Right up my alley. Her 2nd cookbook focuses on juices, smoothies, soups, snacks and treats….both sweet and savory. There is something for everybody and they are all so beautifully photographed.
I’m a huge fan of Emily. She is talented, beautiful, kind and writes some fantastic recipes. You don’t have to be a raw food lover to enjoy them either. You just need working tastebuds!
Today, out of Emily’s amazing book, I’m sharing with you her “Green Earth Orbs ” recipe. They are just as they sound too. They have an earthy flavor, with a wonderful nutty tone and are not overly sweet. Perfect, healthy and filling.
Or if you prefer cinnamon……which just so happens to be my favorite flavor on the planet….
This recipe is from 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks by Emily von Euw.

GREEN EARTH ORBS (Makes 15 orbs)
From Emily: “These orbs have a delicious, deep nutty flavor and are positively packed with healthy nuts and seeds that will make your skin glow and your body sing!”
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (I’m a cinnamon-holic, so I added a lot more!)
Pulse the nuts and seeds into powder in a food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients and process until it all begins to stick together. Try rolling a small handful into a ball. If it works, roll the rest of the mixture into balls. If it is still too crumbly, add more coconut oil or dates. Roll the balls in coconut and cinnamon for extra flavor and nutrition.
