Mollies super boost Bliss balls

These are little bundles of energy, packed with Vitamin C, protein, fibre, antioxidants and polyphenols. They keep well in the fridge for more than a week in an airtight container.

Here is what they offer you.

Vitamin C : As you may have read in my phytochemicals blog article, most of the goodness in an orange is in the skin, which has been basking in sunlight for months while it ripens and you can smell the goodness in the skin if you rub or break the surface . By finely grating the skin, you get all the benefits of the Vitamin C and none of the bitterness.

Polyphenols and antioxidants : fresh ginger and turmeric are full of flavour and metabolism moderating compounds that also boost immunity. You can also use powder form or crystallised ginger .

Figs and dates: Dried or fresh, these are a burst of fibre , which the gut loves and helps with regulating metabolism.

Peanut butter and tahini: both have good oils and protein.

Cacao powder: antioxidant rich and contains iron.

Brazil nuts: New Zealand soils are lacking Selenium and just a couple of Brazil nuts a day can give you the Selenium you need.

Flaxseeds: full of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins.

So here is the recipe:

Finely grated rind of 3 oranges

1 Tablespoon of peanut butter

1 Tablespoon of flaxseeds

6 Brazil nuts

1 teaspoon of tahini

Seeds of 1 vanilla pod

1 dessert spoon each of freshly grated turmeric and ginger or 1/2 teaspoon of powdered

1 and 1/2 Cups of finely chopped figs, dates, apricots, sour cherries, craisins, or your choice of dried fruit.

Mix together or pulse in a food processor until it comes together. Add a squeeze of juice from the fresh oranges if it needs more moisture.

Roll into balls and then roll in either desiccated coconut, sesame seeds or cacao powder.

Eat in moderation
