  • 2 cups dates
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 scoops collagen peptides protein


  • Add pitted raw dates to a food processor and process in 10 second increments until dates roll up into a large ball of date paste. Very carefully remove the date paste ball watching your hands around the blade.
  • Break up date paste into chunks and add it and cashews back into food processor along with collagen protein. Process until smooth (do not over-process) and date paste mixture starts to hold together and rolls into a large ball.
  • Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out date balls. Allow date balls to firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes.


  • If you want even more protein, use your favorite protein powder that has more protein per serving.
  • Store these in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week or on the countertop for a few days.
