Be Kinder To Yourself:  Snack Happy:


What a better way to be kinder to yourself  than by snacking happy.  Treats that are deeply nourishing and more importantly bring an instant smile to your face. I just happen to believe that bliss balls are the healthiest and yummiest snacks in the whole wide world.

Bliss Balls Are Easy To Make - Guaranteed:

There’s no cooking, no fussing and no lengthy preparation time.  They are literally a no brainer.  Children could even make them.

Simply throw your ingredients into the blender, wiz away and then roll into balls.  Some bliss ball recipes don’t even use a blender - simply chop, mix and roll.

September, right here at the Rejuvenation Lounge is all about practicing  random acts of kindness on yourself.   What a better way to do that than by snacking wisely.  Below are a few of my favourite bliss balls recipes that I have collected and enjoyed over the years.

 

  I’m searching for more bliss ball recipes - Do you have one our readers would love?

 

Would you like to share your bliss ball recipe:

I would also dearly love to hear from anyone and everyone with their favourite bliss ball recipe or even a happy healthy snack. I plan to share a more comprehensive list with you all. Remember they need to be healthy. Very happy to link back for your contribution. Email me: healthylivinglounge@gmail.com  and make sure you let me know the link to your blog or site.

 

Chocolate and Cashew Bliss Ball:
1/2 to 1 cup of cashews blended until smooth ( or you can cheat and buy cashew butter)

2 tablespoons of agave nectar (a natural sweetener extracted from the Mexican agave plant) or swap for honey or rice syrup

1 tspn vanilla extract

4 - 8 dates (to your taste)

2 tablespoons organic cacoa

Optional: roll in coconut

 

Coconut and Almond Bliss ball:

1 cup of raw almonds

1/2 cup of sunflower kernels

A small handful of pitted dates

A small handful of sultanas

2 - 4 tablespoons of honey

Roll in desiccated coconut (what the heck, add some coconut into the bliss ball as well)

 

Sesame Bliss Balls:

I borrowed this recipe from Deepak Chopra’s newsletter. Deepak explains that the sesame bliss balls promote a healthy digestion and purify the body - mind.

1 cup toasted sesame seeds
½ cup golden raisins or regular raisins
2 teaspoons ground ginger powder
2 inches fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1½ teaspoons ground cardamon
2½ tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) (I use and prefer ghee most of the time for my cooking)

 

Tahini  Bliss balls:

These are one of my favourites bliss balls with a rougher surface.  The best part is no blender.

1 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of tahini

1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

2 - 4 tablespoons of honey

 

  My Secret To Yummy Bliss Balls:

Quality ingredients. Quality ingredients. Quality ingredients

Organic is best with pesticide free being second best. The taste is better and the nutritional value higher.
