Date, Orange and Chia Bliss Balls

Date, Orange and Chia Bliss Balls

Bliss balls are one of my favourite little snacks to make.  They ridiculously easy and quick to make and are perfect for the work or school lunchbox.
They contain only natural sugars and are a great way to get each vitamins and minerals into your diet.  These bliss balls are lovely and lush when you bite into them due to the use of orange juice.  You could also add a tablespoon or two of cacoa or cocoa to create a jaffa flavoured bliss ball.
2 Cups Pitted Dried Dates
1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
Juice of 1 Orange
2 Tbs Chia Seeds
1. Place all the ingredients into a food processor or thermo style machine and process with the sharp blade for 40 seconds or until the mix forms a smooth consistency.
2. Roll into balls and dust with extra coconut.
Store in the fridge in an air tight container.
Makes  approx 24

    Hi Amanda, I have been looking for an easy to make bliss ball that had ingredients I already have in my home pantry and these are perfect! I added the cocoa and am waiting for them to chill in the fridge but the just processed mix was delicious! Can’t wait to try the finish product out. Thanks for providing such an easy quick recipe again.

    Yet another fantastic recipe! Made the with Mr 5 but we added 1/4 cup cocoa and the zest from the orange and both boys love them. Great it’s got no nuts as my youngest is allergies to them.

    How long will they last in the fridge for Amanda?

      I’ve had them for up to two weeks in an airtight container.

    Can you replace the pitted dates with mixed dried fruit?

      Yes you can but you will get a different flavour.
