MY GO TO SNACK WHILE TRAVELLING?
Love making bliss balls while travelling for a few reasons:
- they keep the kids amused for a bit as they love rolling them
- they can be stored in the freezer, clearing up fridge space and you can make big batches
- you've always got a sweet or chocolate fix when the craving arrives
- a precise recipe is not required so you can just throw in whatever you've got
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
These little babies are my must have guilt free travel snack. I fill them with the goodness of pure cacao melts which contains many nutrients such as magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and vitamin C. Not to mention the fresh ginger, an immune boosting super food and of course the sweet goodies of the dates, a natural source of sulphur, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, potassium and manganese – very beneficial for skeletal and muscular health.
I rarely have a sweet treat that doesn't contain cinnamon as it helps regulate your blood sugar levels avoid those sugar spikes and is also high in anti-oxidants.
You'll notice that many of my recipes, particularly my bliss balls are not very specific, as I usually just throw in what ever I feel like. I encourage all my clients to do the same, its a fun way to enjoy wholesome food when you slap together something from nothing it is very rewarding.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Honey if the dates aren't sweet enough for you
Coconut Oil if you feel it needs to be a bit more sticky
WHAT TO DO
Place all ingredients in a blender of food processor.
Blend until combined or to a consistency you like.
Get the kids to roll them, or if I'm lazy and have no kids around I flatten it into a tray and cut into slices.
Store in Freezer so you don't eat them all.
Note: There are many variations to these balls, so try adding other ingredients you enjoy. Don't stress if you don't have all the ingredients either leave them out and see how you go. This recipe is a variation of the Changing Habits Recipe of Date Squishes.
