strawberry walnut date bites

I posted a similar date bite recipe recently and it was so delicious, (and were eaten very quickly) I wanted to make another batch using strawberries ASAP. These date bites are so simple to make and take no time whatsoever. However, in order to make them you do need a food processor. A food processor is essentially a blender for dry ingredients and doesn't require any liquid to operate. This is a piece of equipment that I would definitely recommend you invest in. Once you do, I bet you will have these little treats permanently stocked in your refrigerator. Medjool dates are packed with the mineral magnesium. Magnesium is the master of treating inflammation. It is known for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, arthritis and high blood pressure. Strawberries are such a yummy and magical fruit. They promote eye health and reduce the risk of cataracts. These amazing berries are also filled with Vitamin C which keeps our immune system in check but also helps produce collagen. Yes, you heard right- strawberries will help you build collagen, resulting in younger, firmer looking skin. Walnuts are a badass nut because they contain these ultra exclusive antioxidants that are only found in a few foods. These VIP antioxidants are the most powerful and effective at killing free-radicals (the bad guys that make us age and our bodies deteriorate) than any other antioxidant. 
So not only do these little bites have heaps of protein, healthy fats, superfoods and the Lara Croft of Antioxidants working for you but they are also so damn delicious.
