When I have dessert after my dinner, I love making treats that are both healthy and fun from ingredients that I already have in my pantry.
Today I will be sharing with you two recipes that my housemate Caro and I created when we made our own version of bliss balls! We made Lemon & Mandarin Bliss Balls and also Apricot & Macadamia Bliss Balls using a very simple recipe.
The first recipe is perfect for this time of year when lemons and mandarins come into season. The result is a delicious treat for lovers of fresh, citrus flavours.
Our second recipe uses dried apricots and super foods! The super foods that I have added into this recipe are Lucuma powder and Maca powder.
A Little Bit About Maca & Lucuma :
- Lucuma is a Peruvian fruit that has been used as a staple food source for centuries. It has a sweet, citrus like flavour and has very low glycemic index, making it an ideal alternative natural sweetener.
- I love using Maca powder in my smoothies. Maca root is rich in Vitamin B, C and E and is a natural adaptogen, which helps balance out hormones. It is also great for keeping your energy sustained throughout the day.
