Instructions
  1. Pit dates if they’re not pitted already and chop them in half.
  2. Place into a bowl of purified water and allow to soak for 1-2 hours.
  3. Once dates are soaked, remove them and place them into a food processor.
  4. Pulse a few times and then add 1 cup watermelon seeds, coconut butter, watermelon, reserving ½ cup of the seeds for later. Add the mashed beet if you are using it. The beet gives the bites more of a pink color but does not affect the flavor and is therefore totally optional.
  5. Blend until well combined, scraping the sides of the food processor as you go.
  6. Add the rest of your watermelon seeds and pulse so that some of the seeds remain chunky. If you want a smoother texture, continue to blend but I think these are great with a nice crunch.
  7. Remove mixture from food processor, place in a small bowl and cover, allowing to cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the mixture from the fridge and keeping your fingertips slightly wet, roll the mixture into balls and place only a plate.
  9. Once you are done rolling, add a few extra watermelon seeds to the top.
  10. If you want to create cake pops, add sticks to the side of the bites before placing in the freezer.
  11. Place the watermelon bites in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until nice and frozen!
