Quick and Easy Blueberry Bliss Balls

Quick and Easy Blueberry Bliss Balls

I’ve just had my beautiful Mum and my ever giving Aunty come and stay. They left this morning and I am sad. So very, very sad.

I love spending my nights with the three of us sitting on the couch, drinking tea and playing remember when.

I love how perfect they make my house look and how my Aunty thinks that everything I make, be it a slice or a baked potato, is the most delicious thing she has tried.

I love that they roll with my quirky ways and love me just as I am.

I love that they play with the kids when I’m too tired to move and that they lighten the load for my husband and me.

I love that they’re mine, that they know me inside and out and that they are proud of me. That they think I am clever and beautiful in a way that makes me laugh loudly.

But I don’t love it when they leave. When we say goodbye and do not know when we will be together again.

It seems that with every year that passes we all miss each other just that little bit more. Each year the distance seems to get harder to bear. The nagging to move back ‘home’ becomes a little louder.    

“One day” my husband and I continue to say.

One day.

    Just wanted to know if the coconut quantity mentioned is inclusive of the coconut for rolling, or is that extra, ie all the coconut mentioned goes in the food processor?ps this sounds delish-thank you!

    • The end of the recipe says extra coconut for rolling, I hope that makes sense…

      • Anna

        Whoops! Missed that- thank you!

    Wow, these are so yummy! Thank you so much for sharing, I’m still learning this whole food thing and sites like this really help.

    These are delicious, so i went ahead and made strawberry ones and mango ones. All were a hit!

    Hi Bianca, I see an asterix next to the macadamia’s is that for a substitute? Maybe i’m just being a little on the blind side? But just wondering what you suggest to substitute for a nut free version? Our schools and daycare are nut free but my children love things like this. Thanks for some fantastic recipes 🙂

    • You can try using sunflower seeds and increasing the dates. I hope this helps.

    Hi, my daughter is allergic to macadamia nuts, I really want to include some good nut fats and protien though can I just substitute for any other nut or should I use a creamier one like cashew? Thanks

    • Shannon

      Just saw the comment below…. Thanks!

    • I would use cashews. I hope they are enjoyed. x

    Thank you for sharing this recipe Bianca I made them today and my little girls were super impressed mum made ‘purple power balls!’ And they were eating them as I was rolling them. So I decided to really impress them by using a cup of raspberries and making another batch.. “Wow mum, WOW!!! Now you made pink power balls!! This is so cool Mum!!!!!!” So thank you Bianca today you helped me be super mum!!! And my kitchen was filled of chat, giggles and excitement which is as we all know what it’s really all about!!

    • Oh I love it!!! Thank YOU!!! I really appreciate the feedback and I am glad the recipe was enjoyed. We do have a raspberry bites version, it is just slightly different. Be sure to keep me posted on how you are going with the recipes. I hope you find many more that you all enjoy. x

    Hi Bianca, can these be frozen once made? Thank you Brenda

    • I haven’t frozen this one, they may crumble….

  • Jess Hammond

    Hi Bianca. Do you think dried blueberries would work as well?

    • Hmm, I haven’t tried that but dried blueberries are easy to add to any bliss ball recipe.

    • Faye Kazas Lawal

      Hi Jess, I tried this recipe with dried blueberries but they were really really sweet unfortunately. Dries blueberries have added sugar in them unfortunately. Apart from that they were a delightful snack so I’ll definitely try making them again with fresh or frozen blueberries.

      • Jess Hammond

        Ah ok! Thanks heaps Faye!
