Bliss Balls Apricot Coconut Lime

Bliss Balls Apricot Coconut Lime

These are not only nutritious but they blend a mix of goodies which wont spoil, melt or squash so easily. There are times when I like to make sweets and send them to my mum in Germany, such as these good old bliss ball. Make sure to take the time to soak the apricots in lime, or lemon juice! They offer a complete protein including all 8-essential amino acids and a sweet lime zing to make you smile.

Makes roughly 20 bliss balls

Dry ingredients

1 cup almond meal, or ground almonds

2 cups desiccated coconut

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 pinch salt

2 tbsp goji berries, or cranberries

1 tbsp maca powder, for an optional super food effect

Wet ingredients

3 tbsp/55g extra virgin coconut oil

3 tbsp/110g rice syrup for a mild sweetness, or use maple syrup for a much sweeter option

More ingredients

About 3/4 cup or 100g dried organic apricots, sliced and diced

1/4-1/2 cup juice of 3 limes, or 2 lemons

Rind of 3 limes, or 2 lemons

1/2 cup extra desiccated coconut, for coating balls

ACTION!

Soak the apricots in the lime or lemon juice and rind for anywhere up to 8 hours. The longer you soak the more zing these balls will have. 

Combine the dry ingredients. 

Add the wet mix and apricots to the dry ingredients and stir well. 

Using wet hands r into balls, then coat with the extra coconut. 

Refrigerate to harden which makes them even more delicious.

Enjoy this protein rich pretty treat.

Tip: 

You have to try substituting dried mango for the apricots and adding 1 tsp turmeric, or 1 tbsp fresh turmeric juice. That’s nice too. You could try using fresh coconut grated instead of the desiccated coconut.
