Came up with this idea during the season of cherries while being on a raw diet. Somehow I find that cherries and black poppy seeds are an perfect combo. Sweetened with dates and decorated with a bit of coconut milk can be a perfect dessert while being on a strict raw diet. Coconut milk I used was full fat with a thick consistency, and therefore I could easily put it on top of cherry sauce. The amount of dates can be optional and it’s dependable on the sourness of cherries.
I used a high-speed food blender to achieve the creamy consistency of raw cherry sauce. In case cherries have less meaty texture and contain more liquid – feel free to add more dates to get the perfect thickness.
Black poppy seeds were grinded in a coffee grinder and then mixed with chopped (mashed) dates. I added some fresh lemon zest to grinded black poppy seeds, and the zest brought a refreshing note to this dessert. Some of balls I sprinkled with chopped pistachios, and the rest with coconut flakes. Both versions taste equally good.
