For those of you who have been here before you’ll think this is a bit of deja vu, rest assured, there’s no glitch in the Matrix, this is a different Bliss Ball inspired the original recipe; Free From Fairies Strawberry Bliss Balls, same principle, same ratios (sort of) but different ingredients. These gluten and dairy free bliss balls are made with blueberries and something told me that cashews and almonds would make an excellent combination and I was right, these little to no sugar mini treats have a delicate marzipan taste to them which is one of my favourite flavours. Give these a go, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
What other fruits can I use other than blueberries?
Blueberries are a less juicier fruit so to make any of these following bliss balls you’ll need to use more of the dry ingredients (i.e. coconut flour/buckwheat) so I’d recommend adding one table spoon at a time until you get the right consistency for rolling. Other fruits you might like to try are;
- Black Currants
- Red Currants

Different ways to decorate these Healthy Bliss Balls
To mix things up a bit I decided to coat half the Blueberry Bliss Balls in fruit powders. I happened to have some Arctic Powder that I bought from the Free From Festival a year ago so thought coating in the loganberry powder would add an extra zing to the flavour and an impressive colour contrast too. The other half of the bliss balls were coated in fine desiccated coconut. Please be weary when buying this in the stores as not all coconut products; desiccated, powdered, flaked, can be guaranteed gluten free. I’ve added an affiliate link to amazon via the image for one that is safe for Coeliac readers.
How about something a bit naughty, I’m all for naughty! Why not coat your bliss balls in a dark chocolate. Hey! Cocoa beans are one of your 5-a-day too aren’t they?
