Wild Rice and Cranberry Relish

Wild Rice
1 cup wild rice

Place in the dehydrator at 115 for 24 hours. This will make 5 cups of rice.

Almond Snow Balls with Raspberry drizzle
Snow Balls

2 cups soaked almonds (overnight), rinsed and drained

1 cup coconut oil (too much oil for me)

Process 1/2 cup coconut flakes to make a powder. Blend the remaining ingredients in a food processor. Roll into balls, roll in coconut flake powder
