Thanks for an amazing year to all my family, friends, lovely yoga students, naturopath clients and amazing colleagues at The Health Emporium, Sage Beauty and Orchard St.

To get into the festive spirit here is a lovely recipe for that Christmas cake taste in a healthy bliss ball. They went down very well at my pre Christmas drinks at the weekend.

Ingredients:
1.5 cups nuts (I used walnuts and almonds)
1-2 cups dried fruit (dates, apricots and sultanas to get that Christmas pudding feel)
Zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ginger powder or grated fresh ginger
1 tbsp brandy (if want to be indulgent)

Method:
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor

Divide the mixture into small balls and place onto baking paper into a sealed container in the fridge and enjoy for up to 1 month or so.

You can mix into extra coconut, cacao powder or goji berries or leave plain or, for a real Xmas pudding feel you can add a white chocolate icing or cashew cream to the top 🙂

Enjoy. Merry Christmas!! 🙂
