Coconut Bliss Balls

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Whenever I make nut milks I always like to come up with a way of using the leftover pulp, and these bliss balls are the perfect way to use almond pulp. The coconut gives them a lighter taste than some richer chocolate versions, and they are ideal for sneaking some superfood powders into your diet too.

If you haven’t yet got any pulp, find the recipe for my Almond Milk here. You’ll get a creamy chilled drink as well as your bliss balls, the perfect weekend treat!

Note that you might have to add a couple more dates depending on how large or moist yours are – start off by adding the recommended seven and you can always throw in another one or two later!

 

Ingredients:

1 cup almond pulp (leftover from making almond milk)

7 dates

2 tbsp desiccated coconut, plus more to roll them in afterwards

1 tsp superfood powder (optional) – I like Organic Burst maca or Organic SuperBlends Omega 3 mix

 

Makes 10 bliss balls

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

 

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a powerful food processor and blitz until they form an evenly mixed pulp.
  1. Roll the mixture into small balls, then roll them in the extra desiccated coconut to coat them.
  1. Store in the fridge for one hour to allow them to firm and go even moister, then eat! These should keep for a few days in the fridge.
