How to make bliss balls
Follow our 3 Simple steps:
- Mix all the ingredients into a food processor or mini blender.
- Blitz until the ingredients start coming together, add a little water if needed.
- Roll into balls. Then as an optional extra, you can roll the balls through some desiccated coconut as well, or do half and half like we like to do. Place covered in the fridge to set.
Once the mixture is starting to combine together, it is ready to form into balls.
Get creative and play around with different topping ideas. You can also dip the balls in melted chocolate, dust with a little cocoa powder or roll in pounded seeds. We would love to hear what ideas you come up with!

They really are that simple, so time to get blitzing and enjoy!
