Bliss Balls – a word that has struck fear in our household lately. Why? The last 12 months have been a food processor massacre in our kitchen – I kid you not! It’s a veritable graveyard of burnt out, broken stick mixers, blenders, multi-processors and 3-in-ones. Extended warranties are no longer optional!
So in celebration of my new Premium Philips Processor with a whopping 1300W and PowerChop feature (which is going to blast through my nuts and dates…I’m sure it is!) I decided it was time to whip up some new Bliss Balls.
If it get’s through that.. I’ll let it loose on my Paleo Salted Caramel Slice – currently wanted for the untimely death of my beloved Breville All-in-One.
These Spicy Chai Bliss Balls evoke memories of calming restorative yoga sessions, balmy nights in Bali, tropical flowers and a warming but soothing sense of well being. The smells of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and allspice are nothing less than divine!
These are the perfect pick me up when you want a treat that satisfies your cravings but are not too sweet. These little balls of bliss are full of super spices.
Perfect healthy treats for the whole family. When my 14 old nephew comes back for me I know we are on a winner!
Bliss Balls full of spicy goodness!
- Cardamom that supports blood circulation (and supposedly has aphrodesiac qualities – so it could really spice up your life!)
- Ginger to aid digestion – find out more here.
- Cinnamon with it’s anti-inflammatory properties
- Immune boosting Allspice
- Clove full of anti-oxidants
These are definitely my favourite bliss ball of the moment – and the food processor is still alive to tell the tale!
I hope you enjoy as much as we do!
