Berry Bliss Balls
Makes: 10–12 balls
Prep time: 5 mins
Freezing time: 15 mins
80g frozen raspberries
100g rolled oats (or gluten-free oats)
2 stoned Medjool dates
1 tbsp smooth or crunchy nut butter
40g dried cranberries
40g goji berries
50g desiccated (shredded) coconut
20g desiccated (shredded) coconut
It’s rare not to find some form of bliss ball lurking in my fridge. Whether it’s for a mid-morning pick-me-up or to satisfy a sweet craving late at night, bliss balls are always the answer. They’re sweet and satisfying to eat without being full of sugar and fat. These berry bliss balls are naturally sweet, and slightly tart and tangy thanks to raspberries, cranberries and goji berries. They’re an ideal finger food for little ones too as they’re gluten and sugar free.
Put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until a dough is formed. Transfer to the freezer to firm up for 15 minutes.
Scoop out 10–12 tablespoon-sized pieces of dough, shape into balls and roll through the desiccated (shredded) coconut to coat. These are best enjoyed within 2 days.
Eat The Rainbow is released on 23rd March. For further information head here.
