Raw Cannoli Rounds Prep

Raw Cannoli Shell Recipe:

Enjoy the crispiness and nutty flavors of our Raw Cannoli Shells. Made with ground walnuts, shredded coconut, and a touch of sweetness, these shells provide the perfect vessel for the creamy filling.

  • 1 cup ground walnuts

  • ½ cup finely shredded dried coconut

  • 3 soft dates

  • 2 T agave nectar (or other liquid sweetener)

  • 1 T water

  • 1 T raw cacao powder

  • A few drops of chocolate flavored SweetLeaf Sweetener Liquid Stevia

  • ¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt

  • 1 average-sized banana

  1. In a food processor, combine the ground walnuts, shredded coconut, dates, agave nectar, water, raw cacao powder, SweetLeaf Sweetener Liquid Stevia, pink Himalayan salt, and the banana.

  2. Process the ingredients until the mixture becomes super smooth and thick.

  3. Remove the mixture from the food processor and, using a large spatula, form thin pancake-like rounds on non-stick dehydrator sheets/tray.

  4. Create as many rounds as possible, depending on the desired size of the cannoli.

  5. Place the trays in the dehydrator and set the temperature to approximately 115°F (46°C).

  6. Dry the rounds for at least 8 to 10 hours, or until they are dried all the way through yet pliable. No need to turn them over or use a mesh tray.

  7. Carefully remove the dried rounds from the sheets and immediately roll them up to form large-mouth tubes.

  8. Place the cannoli back on the dehydrator trays and let them dry for an additional 2 to 3 hours until firm and holding their shape.

Cannoli Filling Recipe:

Fill your homemade raw cannoli shells with the delightful Sweet Ricotta Macadamia Nut Cheeze filling. Made with leftover nut cheeze, agave nectar, vegan chocolate chips, and raw cacao nibs, this filling adds a creamy and decadent touch to your cannoli.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the leftover Sweet Ricotta Macadamia Nut Cheeze, agave nectar, vegan chocolate chips, and raw cacao nibs.

  2. Stir the ingredients until well incorporated, and taste the mixture to adjust the sweetness according to your preference.

  3. For optimal consistency, place the mixture in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set up prior to filling the cannoli.

Assembling the Cannolis:

Complete your raw cannoli masterpiece by assembling the cannoli shells with the scrumptious Sweet Ricotta Macadamia Nut Cheeze filling. Follow these simple steps to achieve perfectly filled cannoli.

  1. Place the filling inside a pastry bag or a plastic storage bag with a corner cut to create a tip.

  2. Carefully pipe the nut cheeze filling into each cannoli shell, ensuring even distribution.

  3. Alternatively, you can carefully unroll the cannoli and spoon the filling inside before rolling it back up.

  4. Be cautious not to crack or break the delicate cannoli shell during the filling process.

  5. Once assembled, your raw cannoli is ready to be served and enjoyed.

  6. Store any leftover cannoli in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 or 4 days.
