Bliss Balls with a Twist

"Accept that instability is inevitable and actually learn to enjoy it" Lisa Messenger.

One of my favourite quotes right now from her book Money and Mindfulness..... Oh what a blessing to read her realness and her savvy heart felt solutions.... if you haven't picked it up it's a great read!

Instability.... I use to fear this word, feel inadequate, feel like I was less of a mum because I chose a different track, separate, my family felt scattered, far from stability....  but we made it work, we scattered lots of love and lots of fun and have accepted from it, learnt from it and now ENJOY having a new un-pathed path to journey along.

I hope you ENJOY these bliss balls as much as I did making them with my daughters!
Sometimes, being a parent, things just don't go the way you planned....... and thats ok. 
Why not add some Acceptance essential oil blend in the diffuser while you are getting creative in the kitchen ;) 

Choc recipe and Bliss Balls you can eat for brekky, lunch or tea :)  Made with Love from Amy Joyous 


Raw Chocolate:
1/2 cup of cacao powder
4 tbs coconut oil
4 tbs maple syrup 
Melt if need and mix… as more oil if need thinner runnier consistency if think and want to add a fudge like feel why not add some medjool dates, cashew butter or tahini….. vanilla essence and any YL earth flavour you choose. 

Tangerine Dream Bliss Balls:

1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 cup of pitted dates
1 cup of sultanas 
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 tbs cashew butter or tahini or cacao spread…. 
8 drops of Tangerine oil

Blend or blitz the sunflower seeds, place in bowl with desiccated coconut and add the tangerine oil drops. Set aside and allow the flavour and aroma to soak in.
Blend up the dates, add whole sultanas (or blend swell, up to you….)  Add cashew butter (or tahini) and then mix all ingredients together.  
Squeeze into a slice tin or roll into balls….
To decorate, sprinkle with or roll in either more blended sunflower seeds….. or you could add any other seed chia or sesame seed etc.

I love to store mine in the freezer, a great go to when you feel like some chocolate or a naughty sweet treat, which is not really naughty at all :) if you want you can make the chocolate above and roll them in that also! 

However you choose, ENJOY….

Halva Bliss Balls:
I first came across Halva balls years ago when my girls were bubas, I was looking for different food ideas, and just happened to be watching the Today show at my parents house, with my mum, Lola…..  one particular morning…. seeing this Aussie chick…  Lola Berry for the first time pop up on the TV, with her funky name, beautiful blond locks and bright ribbon and headband in her hair… i think I had an instant girl crush as I was so into everything plant medicine and wholefoody so she made Halva balls and I have been making them ever since.. and following the nutritionist journey around town… and now with her new Melbourne cafe Happy Place!…. A bit of an inspiration and on the cover of this Month edition of Holistic Bliss Magazine!!!  :) 

This is my version with the addition of our gorgeous vibrational essential oils.

Cinnamon Seed Bliss Balls :

1 cup of almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
 1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cups hemp seeds
I tbs linseeds
1/2 cup dried YL wolfberries (crazy high in antioxidants)
1/2 cup cashew or/& macadamia butter
1/2 cup Tahini 
A drizzle of maple syrup &/or rice bran syrup 
2 drops of YL cinnamon bark oil 
2 drops of YL nutmeg oil 

Can also add bee pollen if thats your thang ;) 

Mix together and roll into little bliss balls of goodness, store in fridge or freezer… roll in raw choc for extra plant power and antioxidants!!
