Merry Xmas to everyone!!
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.
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)
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!! 🙂
