I used to think bliss balls were totally overrated, but I've started to realise these power house balls can be something quite exciting.
Introducing my 'Matcha Bliss Balls with Coconut & Cranberries;' a careful selection of ingredients that I think create a bliss ball that's rather unique and quite a sensory for the tastebuds.
My recipe combines the usual nut and date base, cashews & coconut being the base, along with bitter matcha green tea powder and sweet tart cranberries.
This results in a delicious well balanced ball that's perfect for an uplifting mid morning or afternoon snack.
Love Alex, Ballerina Bites. xx

1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup soft dates, pitted if necessary
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp matcha powder (I use Matcha Maiden )
1 tbsp chia seeds
Pinch of salt
In a food processor, process the cashews and coconut flakes until a rough meal, leaving some texture.
Add the remaining ingredients and process until a dough is formed.
Roll into balls, about the size of a chocolate truffle.
Store bliss balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
Makes 14 Bliss Balls
