Coconut & Raspberry Bliss Balss


1 cup (140g/4.9oz) sunflower seeds
1 cup (100g/3.5oz) desiccated coconut
1⁄3 cup (50g/1.7oz) chopped beetroot
1⁄3 cup (8g/0.3oz) freeze-dried raspberries
1⁄2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1⁄2 tsp vanilla bean powder
3 Tbsp coconut oil
2 cups (320g/11.2oz) dates, soaked for 4 hours

1 cup (100g/3.5oz) desiccated coconut
1⁄4 cup (6g/0.2oz) freeze-dried raspberries


Place the sunflower seeds, desiccated coconut, beetroot, freeze-dried raspberries, sea salt and vanilla bean powder and blend until fine. Add the coconut oil and blend until well mixed. Add the dates and blend on low until well combined. Pour mixture into a bowl and set aside.

Place the desiccated coconut and freeze-dried raspberries in a small bowl and mix with your hands, rubbing to combine the raspberry colour with the coconut. Take two tablespoons of the mixture and roll into a ball. Place in the raspberry coconut mixture and roll around to coat completely. Continue to do this until you have used up all the mixture. Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
