Bhumi fruit balls

I've named these tasty fruit-balls "Bhumi" balls. Bhumi means mother earth in the ancient Sanskrit language.Today is a special festival in the Krishna culture celebrating an incarnation of the Lord known as Varahadeva. According to the Vedic scriptures Lord Varahadeva rescued mother earth from the bottom of the causual ocean (the Vedas have descriptions of the universal planetary system which differs much from the modern day view). So I made these Bhumi balls for the Lords pleasure today! :-) Hope you like them!


Approx 1/4 cup or less almond milk
1 1/2 TBSP vanilla essence
1/2 tsp almond essence
pinch sea salt
approx 1 cup roasted almonds
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup candied ginger pieces
1/2 cup candied mango pieces
3 TBSP of a coffee substitute mix - the one I used had roasted chicory and carob in it.
Approx 2 cups toasted wheatgerm
1/4 cup Trader Joes white baking chips (white choc chips)


Blend all ingredients -- except the last two -- together in a food processor til smooth. Place into a bowl and knead in the white choc chips and wheatgerm. Roll into balls. Makes approx 14 large sized balls.
