Its been hot the last few days. It’s taking me back to my days of living in Thailand. We would step outside and instantly sweat! As you walk down the path, street stalls would be catering for all things to cool you down. Coconut water, fresh fruit, iced coffee, the taste of peanuts in a papaya salad, and the list goes on. Served cold, these Summer Bliss Balls remind me of the flavor of Thailand, that is perfect to eat in this hot weather.

 

These Summer Bliss Balls are packed with healthy fats for nervous system support and to keep you fueled. Protein to fill you longer, fiber to cleanse the bowels and support lowering of LDL cholesterols, and are loaded with vitamins and minerals for healthy hair, skin, nails and cellular health.

 

Ingredients

1 cup desiccated coconut, blended into a flour, and a little extra to roll in

 

1 cup cashews, blended into a flour

1 cup of LSA or oat flour (blended oats)

1/4 cup of coconut milk or coconut oil

1/2 cup date paste* – soaked in hot water and blended into a paste

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Optional for that EXTRA summer taste

1 handful of dried mango, blitzed.

 

Method

  1. In a food processor, add your desiccated coconut, cashew, mango, oat flour and/or LSA and mix all ingredients.
  2. Add your coconut oil/cream, vanilla essence and date paste. Mixing until smooth.
  3. Roll into balls, then into some leftover coconut desiccate and serve.

Serve chilled for a summer treat. These Summer Bliss Balls Can be kept frozen for a month or refrigerated for 1 week.

 

 

*Date paste is my way of sweetening things up. Its high in fiber, minerals like iron, is super blood building from Chinese medicine, and if you are limiting your refined sugar, one or two servings of these recipes won’t overdo your fructose intake. You soak the dates in hot water for around 10 minutes, then drain most of the water except for around 50 MLS, then blend in a blend until it forms a paste.
