Cherry Power Balls

Need a little pick-me-up? Try these cherry balls, instead of buying an energy bar or granola bar, for true whole-food nutrition. Packed with phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals, these snacks are easy and delicious. My tasters really enjoyed the cherry fruit flavor, and since the cocoa covered that cherry flavor up, the chocolate variation wasn't quite as popular.

1) Place pitted dates, cherries, and almonds in a food processor and process for for a couple of minutes until the dough starts to come together. While it's processing, add 1 tablespoon of water. When the dough sticks together, roll into small balls. Makes about 18 1-inch balls.
2) Variation: Add 3 tbsp of natural cocoa powder to the mixture.
