Christmas Bliss Balls with Thermomix Instructions
One of our favourite Thermomix Christmas Recipes that is perfect for giving, keeping and tucking into on the big day. Enjoy.


Christmas Bliss Balls

  • 1 cup almonds (140 grams)
  • 12 medjool dates, seeds removed (160 grams)
  • 1/3 cup currants (50 grams)
  • 1/3 cup raisins (50 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  1. Place all of the ingredients into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a fine, sticky crumb. Firmly press and shape the mixture into balls. Place in the fridge to set.
  2. Eat and enjoy.

Thermomix Method

  1. Place the ingredients into the bowl and blend at speed 10 for 15 seconds. The mixture is ready when it does not crumble when you use your hands to press and shape it into a ball. It should be easy to work with. If the mixture has not yet come together add a tablespoon of water and blend at speed 10 for a further 5 seconds.
  2. Press and shape the mixture into balls. Place the balls in the fridge to set.
  3. Eat. Enjoy.

notes – I have made these with both natural almonds and dry roasted almonds and we loved both versions, I suggest using whichever you have on hand.

If you are enjoying the recipes I would be thrilled if you had a minute to check out the books. With thanks, B x

Yum! My dojo loved these and the sensei took what was left home (I have more in the fridge). Made something up last year that was similar but did not write down – glad you did.

Hi Bianca. Is it almonds with skin on?

Yes that is what I used but either would be fine.

Love, love, love these! I did increase the spices as we like the stronger flavour, and I only used 8 dates because that’s all I had – but they’re quite sweet enough with all the additional fruit. They taste just like traditional Christmas cake but so much simpler to whip up. Clever you for coming up with the idea for this. Hope they last until Christmas Day!
