Bliss Balls were my first sweet recipe I made 10 years ago when I just changed my diet. Everyone around me loved them so much, that I now make them all the time. Back then, no one really knew about superfoods but now all the ingredients are delicious much easier to find. These versions are inspired with Persian spices but if you can’t find unsalted raw pistachios, you can use any other nuts you like and have on hand.
PERSIAN BLISS BALLS WITH APRICOTS, PISTACHIOS AND ROSEWATER
80 g apricots, dried (sulfur free)
70 g medjool dates (pitted)
70 g pistachios (raw and unsalted)
30 g desiccated coconut and more for decorating/serving
1 tablespoon rosewater
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon orange zest
1 small pinch sea salt
1 Process the pistachios into a fine flour in your food processor.
2 Add the desiccated coconut to the food processor and mix until combined.
3 Add all the other ingredients and process until mixture becomes a loose dough that is starting to stick together.
4 Roll into 1-inch balls, add desiccated coconut if desired, and chill before serving for best results. Store chilled.
The scent of a rose will bring a smile to your face. Roses and their by-products have many therapeutic benefits with rose water in particular having anti-inflammatory properties perfect for troubled skin. Devour the pure scent (not artificial fragrances) and notice how amazing you feel.
