What Do I Need To Make Bliss Balls?
Bliss balls, protein balls, and fat bombs are super easy to put together. Simply:
- gather your ingredients;
- pop them all in a food processor and blitz until combined;
- roll into a ball;
- if you are going to have something on the outside like coconut or chocolate then roll the balls in that;
- pop in the fridge or freezer until set;
See, super easy!
You may benefit from a good quality food processor to make sure you get the desired consistency.
I have had a Cuisinart for years and have found it to be super reliable and a valuable member of my kitchen appliance team (to the point where it has earned permanent status on my kitchen bench....which isn't given easily around here as space is at a premium and I hate clutter). Grab one here:
Other than that you are good to go.
Just be sure to check the ingredients you purchase to make sure there aren't any hidden nasties like sugar and food coloring.
A Note For Those With Nut Allergies
A lot of bliss balls feature nuts quite heavily, which is a great way of getting a nice protein hit for those of us who can eat nuts.
If you can't, there are plenty of substitutions you can try out:
- sunflower seeds
- pumpkin seeds
- flax seeds
- chia seeds
- hemp seeds
- or a combination of all of the above depending on what you have on hand.
The great thing about bliss balls is that they are super versatile and open themselves very nicely to substitutions. So get experimenting!
Now For those 31 Bliss Balls Without Dates.
