Our caveman coffee went down a treat. We got our visitors to try liver, heart, tongue, beet kvass and a smoothie made with edible weeds (note: not that kind of weed)... and many were pleasantly surprised. But the star was clearly the paleo ball. Swedes have a huge sweet tooth, but at least our paleo ball only contained natural sugars from the dates.

As promised, here is the paleo ball recipe to try at home.
6 fresh dates
2 dl almonds and/or hazelnuts
5 tbs desiccated coconut (plus more for rolling, optional)
2 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs ghee
2 tbs orange peel
2 tbs ground cardamom
1 pinch salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until it sticks together. Roll into small, medium or large balls. If it is too sticky to roll, then let it rest in the fridge for a bit. Cover in dessicated coconut. Store in an airtight container in the freezer and try not to eat them all at once!
