Matcha & Coconut Bliss Balls

20161201_130727-01

Matcha tea is one my favourite food staples at the moment. It has many health benefits ranging from boosting the immune system, calming the mind, relaxing the body, increased energy and concentration. I can see why the Japanese love Matcha and why they add it to almost everything. I for one am always adding it into my smoothies and am always trying to think of new ways to add it into my snacks or meals.

Here is my latest creation, please do not be alarmed by the colour like my husband was! I assure you it tastes amazingly better than how it looks!

Ingredients

1 tsp Matcha powder
1 Tbsp Cacao nibs
1 Tbsp of Coconut oil
1 Cup of Shredded coconut
1 Cup of Walnuts
10 Medjool date’s

 

Add walnuts and shredded coconut into a blender, blend until you get a crumbly texture. Remove pips from medjool dates, then add them into the blender with matcha powder. Blend until mixture is blended. Add coconut oil and blend until mixed, then added in cacao nibs and blend for a couple of seconds. Roll into small balls. Store balls in the fridge, they will be ready to eat within 30 minutes, or you can eat them straight from the blender! Enjoy!

 

Makes  12, time required 10 minutes.
