    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!! Is there something else you could use instead of goji berries??

    • bianca

      Thank you Renee, you could use cranberries, chopped dried apricots, whatever you like. I hope this helps. Bianca

  • Nicole

    Will have to try this

    I made this to take to a family BBQ today. I confess I wasn’t too sure about it, but then I’m not really a white chocolate fan. It went down well with everyone else, though! I think next time I’d add more nuts & fruit, and maybe some shredded coconut in at the end too. Thanks for doing all the experimenting to come up with all these healthier, alternative ways of doing things!

  • Judith

    Oops sorry, didn’t read the post properly – it was the cacao butter version I made. Maybe I’ll try this one too!

  • Janneke

    Yum! I made it this weekend, even my none wholefood friends and family loved it. I used inca berries because I had them instead. Next time if put more pistachios

    • bianca

      Thank you. xx

    I have an intolerance to cashews and pistachios. Is there an substitute you could recommend for this recipe?I am fine with other nuts.
    Thank you.

    • bianca

      Hi Nicola, you could try using 1 1/2 cups of coconut and 1/2 cup macadamias. You can replace the pistachios with pumpkin seeds or even dried apricot. I hope this helps. Bianca

    Love love love your blog. Cannot get enough. I was hoping to sub goji berries with cranberries and pistachios with almonds to avoid a trip to the shops but I doubt it will have the same flavor. Do you know roughly how long this will keep I was thinking of making as gifts for teachers?

    Thank you

    • bianca

      Thank you so much Anna! I really appreciate that! I thinks your subs sound lovely and it keeps really well, we have had it in the fridge for well over a week before. You could even try freezing it if you wanted too. I hope that helps. Bianca

  • Lynda M

    Love this idea! Will definitely be making some for gifts 🙂

    • bianca

      Thank you. I am glad you like it. x

  • Kym

    Thank you – I will try this tomorrow!

  • What a great recipe!! Thanks for sharing. Do you think you could substitute the coconut with rolled/quick oats?

    • bianca

      You could certainly try. Let me know how you go! Many thanks, Bianca

    Hi Bianca,

    I love reading your blog and all your recipes and made this White Christmas for the first time last night! This is the first recipe of yours I have actually tried!
    I wanted to ask you what the consistency of the dessicated coconut and the cashwes should be like? Can you compare it to something? I’m not sure if mine was smooth enough or if it was too thick, but I’m not sure how smooth it should get… Mine was probably more like a dough than a paste and had a sort of floury consistency; is that how it is supposed to be?
    Thanks so much for your help 🙂

    • bianca

      Hi Kate, thank you . That sounds pretty good except for the floury bit, perhaps process it a moment longer. I hope that helps. Enjoy, Bianca

    Super easy and amazingly YUM! I always think, no way can that taste as amazing as it looks and yep everytime it does! Keep up the great easy recipe ideas!!!!!

  • Sarah T-S

    Hi! I’ve been making these as Christmas gifts but I cannot seem to get them sliced up so neat like those in your images – is there a tip there please? They are such a treat and I find myself making twice the amount as my husband keeps nicking them on the sly … thanks so much for such healthy alternatives – they are super easy to make as well!!!!

    • bianca

      Thank you, I ma glad you like them. I would suggest making sure you blend them long enough and most importantly that they have long enough to set. I have tried cutting mine before they were set and it was crumbly. I hope this helps. Many thanks, Bianca

    I made this using dried currants (Australian dried grape type!) and cacao nibs instead of goji and pistachio. My first ‘raw’ slice effort. Delicious

    Do you soak the goji berries before mixing them in? 🙂

    Can these be made into balls?

    • Maybe make the cranberry and pistachio balls?
