WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE
Gluten & dairy free - these healthy carrot cale bliss balls are suitable for people with gluten and dairy allergies & intolerances as well as many other dietary requirements.
Easy to make - this recipe takes 10 minutes to make (15mins if you add the optional step) and approximately 30 minutes to set.
Healthy wholefood ingredients - which are easy to find at any supermarket.
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED
- Medjool dates
- Almond meal or Almond flour
- Shredded coconut - optional but totally worth it
WHY YOU MUST USE MEDJOOL DATES
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.
HOW TO MAKE THESE BALLS
This is one of the easiest dessert recipes to make and take hardly any time to make. These bliss balls take 10-15 minutes to make using your food processor or high-speed blender and approximately 30 minutes to firm up in your freezer.
HOW TO BEST STORE THEM
These are best to store in your freezer as they soften quite easily. You can store them for up to 6 months. You will need to allow 5 minutes to thaw them out before eating.
