AYURVEDIC Bliss Balls
I came across this EPIC bliss ball recipe from my Ayurvedic practitioner, here in the Adelaide Hills. After each treatment, she gives you a super healing and healthy bliss ball which I look forward to each visit ;)
She was oh so kind to let me share her recipe which I have listed below. You should definitely check out her website for other REALLY INTERESTING stuff on health, food, healing, the body etc. Here is a link to her website.
I think it is now going to become a tradition for my regular yoga classes to enjoy a little treat after each class with me on their way out the door.
The recipe is a guideline, but I would keep the spices the same and just switch your additional dried fruit each batch you make. The options are endless.
So, enough talk! Lets get cooking... Or should I say ROLLING.
All you need is a food processor, the ingredients below and your hands.
AYURVEDIC BLISS BALLS
500 grams DATES (dried or fresh)
1/2 cup, shredded COCONUT
1 good handful of ALMONDS
1 good handful of RAISINS
1-2 tablespoons of GHEE (depending of the texture - it needs to be sticky)
1/2 Teaspoon EACH of GINGER, CINNAMON & CARDAMON
Optional Extras:(or replacement of raisins/almonds) ROUGHLY CHOPPED
Desiccated coconut for coating the balls
Basically any others you think might combine well with the flavours.
Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blend on medium-high until mixture is well ground and beginning to bind together.
Take roughly a dessert spoon amount and roll in the palm of your hand to for a ball shape.
OPTION: Roll the balls in desiccated coconut for a more tropical taste.
Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight,
They should last for 3-5 days or longer, if you can stop yourself at one!
There you have it!
SUPER SIMPLE & TASTY bliss balls that are cheap and quick to make. They will not only satisfy you, but I reckon some little tackers will like them as well.
Just keep in mind that GINGER is quite a WARM spice.
So be careful when sharing to kids as it might taste pretty 'hot' to them.
Kids have super sensitive taste buds compared to adults.
ENJOY MY FRIENDS!
Much love & namaste,
