EASY BLISS BALLS...FREE FROM NUTS, DAIRY AND PROCESSED SUGAR!

HI everyone,

For those who know me, they will know that I am always on the move. PLUS, I have a huge appetite. Yesterday was no exception, with the day consisted of 4 yoga classes (kids, corporate, private and studio), attending the solo band night for my daughter, and also visiting my son’s Year 2 classroom for “Healthy Living”. As well as having fun with massage train and relaxing with guided meditation, we made 2 types of Bliss Balls that are perfect for kids (and adults!) lunch boxes. Also great for a boost before or after sports training, or a healthy bize-sized dessert when you want something sweet after dinner.

So here they are:

Super simple - just need a mixing bowl, food processor (I use a nutri bullet), spoon and at the end clean hands!

APRICOT COCONUT BALLS

1 cup oats,

1 cup chopped apricots (I usually soak for around an hour to soften)

1 cup of desiccated coconut

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Drain the apricots and then blitz in the food processor.

Mix with the other ingredients in a bowl. Once mixed with spoon, put your hands in and roll/mould into small balls with your fingers.

Keep in refridgerator for up to 2 weeks.

DATE AND CACOA BALLS

(tip - get the kids to smell Cacoa - once they realise it smells like chocolate, they are in!)

1 cup oats

3/4 cup of dates (once again, I usually soak for around an hour to soften)

1 cup desiccated coconut (plus extra to roll balls)

2 tablespoons cacoa powder

2 tablespoons honey (or maple syrup)

Drain the dates and then blitz in the food processor.

Mix with the other ingredients in a bowl. Once mixed with spoon, put your hands in and roll/mould into small balls with your fingers. Place in a bowl of the extra coconut to coat on outside.

Keep in refridgerator for up to 2 weeks.

ENJOY!
