In an attempt to provide my little ones with delicious irresistible lunchboxes and snacks that don't come out of a packet and are nourishing their little bodies at the same time I made a batch of bliss balls - I wont share the recipe as it was NOT a hit. But as I knew that there were some delicious recipes out there I went searching... Today the kids and I cooked up a storm and made three different Bliss Ball recipes. With the help of my wonderful new food processor the kids were able to do most of the work and had a blast in the process. The kitchen is now covered head to toe in coconut but the smiles on every ones faces makes it all worthwhile. Below I have shared the 3 recipes, which made for very different, yet equally delicious recipes, all nut-free as they need to go to school in lunchboxes.
(From the Chopra Centre Newsletter)
½ cup golden raisins or regular raisins
2 teaspoons ground ginger powder
2 inches fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1½ teaspoons ground cardamon
2½ tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) (I use and prefer ghee most of the time for my cooking)
This is a health ball for sure! Whoo! We love a bit of ginger in this household, especially around flu season and I thought this would knock the kids heads off but to my delight it didn't. These a completely different to the other two but are delicious non the less. Kids thought - "I like the sesame, I can taste the ginger and spices but it's still yummy"
