Protein Bliss Balls

IMG_3211-150x150

So I haven’t done a blog in a long time, with my issues with my back last year and then I have been working on my new website.  Since we are now launched I thought I would kick back into it with a new Protein Bliss Ball recipe…  This is one of the easiest recipes too make as you don’t even need to get the food processor out!

Protein Bliss Balls

  • 4 Tbsp LSA + P
  • 2 Tbsp Clean protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp Cacao
  • 3 Tbsp Nut Butter ( I use Almond)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Maca Powder
  • 5 Tbsp Water (warm)
  • Chia seeds to roll balls into

Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the nut butter and mix through.  Gradually add the warm water until you get a consistency you can roll (not too sticky and not too crumbly!)

Black Forrest Bliss Balls

I had to make something to share for a morning tea this week and I wanted to make something a bit different….I normally make a fresh gucamole, salsa or hummus to have with carrot, celery, and capsicum sticks.
However I thought I would make some bliss balls as they are super quick and easy to make. Brazil nuts are a fantastic source of selenium and we only need 2 per day to get our Recommended Daily Intake. Selenium is required by the body in very small amounts for proper growth and functioning.

Ingredients
70g Brazil Nuts
1/4 cup Pumpkin and Sunflower seeds
1/2 cup Dates
1/4 cup Cacao powder
1/2 cup Frozen Raspberries.

Method
First blend the brazil nuts in the food processor to a fine powder and add the seeds, dates and cacao powder. Add the raspberries at last and blitz for a few seconds to mix.
Roll into balls and freeze. Best eaten straight from the freezer.
