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?

1 tspn vanilla extract
4 - 8 dates (to your taste)
2 tablespoons organic cacoa

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.
