It has been such a favourite that I made several variations including raspberry coconut rough, minty coconut rough and jaffa coconut rough.

Today, I am bringing my newest coconut rough variation.

This recipe only requires 5 ingredients and either a high-speed blender or a food processor.

What are the best dates to use to make these bliss balls?

I highly recommend using Medjool dates to make these bliss balls and any other raw dessert recipe that require dates and I always state in the ingredients listing to use Medjool dates.
Medjool dates are sticky so they really bind together all the ingredients really well.
If you use regular dates, you will most likely find that the mixture will not hold and you will need to use a little bit of coconut oil or nut butter to make the bliss balls.

Can I store these bliss balls?

Yes you can! You can keep stored in your refrigerator for up to 1 week or you can store in the freezer for up to 6 months. You will need allow 15 minutes to thaw them out before eating.

  1. After blending the ingredients, they wouldn’t stick together to roll. I left them in the fridge for an hour and tried to roll again and they crumbled. Any suggestions on what to do?
