+ Well Nourished ⎮ Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls

Raspberry Coconut Bliss Balls

Raspberry coconut bliss balls

These sweet raw bliss balls are a quick and easy treat to break up the chocolate overload this Easter. My kids named them ‘Easter Bunny tails’ when they helped me make them because apparently raspberry coconut bliss balls ‘sounds boring’.

Health benefits
Cashews are a great source of monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, and magnesium (nut-free variation below the main recipe). Anti-inflammatory properties and more antioxidants galore from nature’s candy ‘raspberries.’

Ingredients
70g (½ cup) cashew nuts (nut-free below)
80g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
½ cup frozen raspberries
2-3 tablespoons sweetener (rice malt syrup or maple syrup)
Zest of one lemon (optional)
¼ cup extra desiccated coconut to roll them in

Method

  1. Grind your cashew nuts in a food processor (TMX 5 seconds, speed 7)
  2. Add the coconut, raspberries, sweetener and optional lemon zest.
  3. Mix to combine (TMX 10 seconds, speed 5).
  4. Roll into balls and then roll in more coconut if you like.
  5. Store in the freezer and serve from frozen. Enjoy!

Variations
Nut-free
Substitute the cashews with toasted sunflower seeds or rolled oats (grind as you would the nuts).

Low-fructose
Choose rice malt syrup as your sweetener.

Choc-raspberry
Can’t help but want chocolate? Add a tablespoon of cacao to make them choc-raspberry.

Store and serve
As with any raw treat, these don’t hold up to heat well. I always store them in the freezer and if packing in a lunchbox, pack from frozen and against and ice brick.

    Hi Georgia, I just made a batch of these and oh my goodness they are the best!! I made mine with rolled oats and I did the chocolate raspberry version ???? thanks for the best recipes and my toddler is hanging off my legs for a third ball.

    • Glad you both liked them- they certainly are a great, easy and really tasty ball – your toddlers got good taste! G x

  • Bec

    These are yum! Thanks Georgia xx

  • Tricia Pierce

    Hello!
    Planning on making these for a gathering, can they be left at room tempt? 🙂
    Thank you!

    • Tricia you would have to serve them from the fridge or freezer – like any raw treat they will soften with exposure to heat G x

  • Lauren Williams

    Was just wondering on the calorie count on these bliss balls?

    • Hi Lauren, I’m not a fan of calorie counting (no value from a health perspective in my opinion) so I don’t know. I’m sure there are calorie counters online that you can calculate if that is important for you. G x

    Golly golly gosh! Just made these and can’t wait for them to firm up in the freezer, YUM! I didn’t have cashews so subbed for 2/3rd almonds and the rest macadamias. Georgia, this really REALLY needs to be made into an icecream!!! ?

    • Mmmmm – ice-cream? Now your talking! Glad you enjoyed G x

  • Andreza

    Made these this arvo. Winner! According to my husband they’re a new favourite and my 3yr old thought they were awesome! Thanks x
    Ps subbed the cashews for macadamias and added a tblsp of chia seeds. Delish.

    • Perfect – thrilled you all liked them Andreza, thanks for the feedback (and your subs, helps others who might not like/have cashews) G x

  • Shirley Mccombie

    Another winner 😋. I used mixed berries and a little less coconut. Thank you for another awesome recipe. X

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
