Ingredients:

¾ large glass, or 115g any type of  Tiger Nuts
1 glass or 250 mls water
pinch of cinnamon
2 teaspoons raw cacao
1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs
6 frozen cherries
2 tablespoons RawCo coconut oil
1 generous tablespoon port or cherry brandy
raw cacao powder for dusting
Method:

Blend the tiger nuts, water and cinnamon until reduced to a pulp
Strain using a nut milk bag or some muslin. You’ll now have some tiger nut milk to drink!
Next process the pulp with the remaining ingredients until just mixed leaving some texture to the mix.
Use your hands to shape into balls, and then roll and coat  with raw cacao powder. Alternatively you can leave plain.
These will keep well in a fridge for up to 3 days, and are ideal for freezing. 

Note: You might see the milk separate into liquid and solids, but don’t worry just give it a shake. This is caused by high level of resistant starch in the concentrated tiger nut milk in this recipe.
