Beetroot Bliss Balls

These bliss balls are just so vibrant and taste chocolatey and sweet. I couldn’t actually believe how good they tasted when I first made up this recipe! I even think any beetroot haters out there would love these!


  • 250g raw, peeled beetroot, roughly chopped
  • 100g pitted dates
  • 150g desiccated coconut
  • 100g Cashew nuts or Brazil nuts
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • Dash of vanilla extract

Extra desiccated coconut for coating


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blitz or pulse for around 7-10 seconds at high speed until well combined. Blitz for another 10 seconds if necessary.
  2. Roll into around 20 balls using the extra desiccated coconut to stop them sticking together.
  3. Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week.
