Recipe: Adaptogen Spiked Bliss Balls
These Adaptogen Spiked Bliss Balls are the ultimate on-the-go snack packed full of nutrients, vitamins, goodness and you guessed it, fat!
With the mix of good quality, high density fats in this recipe you will be nourishing your adrenal, hormonal and energy systems and supporting your body, whilst also keeping you satiated and happy between meals.
That's a whole lot of goodness from one little ball!
No #hanger around here!
Compared to your usual energy balls, these guys don't feature dates, so they are naturally sugar-free – meaning no insulin spikes – plus there's some extra goodness of Adaptogens, hormone happy Maca Powder and gut healing Glutamine, making them perfect for those who have digestive issues, follow a low FODMAP diet or are dealing with PCOS or Adrenal Fatigue.
This recipe has been adapted + evolved from something similar my Herbal Practitioner Susi Kaiser put together when addressing a need to boost fat dosages and get in some healing goodness.
1 cup Shredded Coconut
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Mixed Nuts - we suggest Almonds/Cashews
1/2 cup Seeds with a mix of Pumpkin/Sunflower/Linseed
2 tbsp Cacao Nibs
2 tsps Cinnamon
2 tbsp Maca Powder
1/2 tbsp Ashwagandha
1 tbsp Glutamine
Non - Dairy Milk as needed
If you have a Vitamix or other high-grade food processor – simply combine all ingredients and blitz until smooth.
If you are using a Nutribullet or blender – first mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and then separate into two portions. With the first portion of the dry mix, add half the coconut oil and half the almond milk and blitz to combine. You may need to keep shaking the blender jar and scrape the sides to get it to combine. Repeat with the second half of the mixture and then recombine all together into the mixing bowl.
Don't be afraid to use a little more liquid as you need - the mix can be quite wet and that's good! It will solidify as you freeze it!
To shape your balls – simply grab a small handful of the mixture and roll it into a palm sized ball and place on baking tray. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
As your mixture could be a little wet right now (the coconut oil will have liquidified in the process) you want to pop the tray of balls into the freezer for around 10-15 minutes.
You can store the bites in the freezer for a good few months and they will stay tasty + fresh!
Grab a ball and munch as a delicious, energising and filling on-the-go snack!
