Herbal Bliss Balls

These are one of my favorite ways to get supportive herbs in on a daily basis. The herbs used are the ones I have found support my mood and energy when taken regularly. Feel free to sub for other herbs, but keep the amount of dried ingredients about the same for best results.


Herbal Bliss Balls

Makes about 10 large balls 

  • 1/3 cup dried fruit (raisins, dates, or dried mulberry - soaked for a few hours in warm water, then strained) 

  • 1 cup sprouted seeds*

  • 1 cup shredded toasted coconut

  • 10 Brazil nuts

  • 3 T almond butter

  • 1 t ashwagandha

  • 1 t rhodiola

  • 1 t reishi powder

  • ½ t vanilla powder

  • 1 t cinnamon powder 

  • 1 t gelatinized maca powder

  • 1 t lucuma powder

  • optional: ½ cup cacao nibs or 100% chocolate chips 

Blend all ingredients (besides cacao, if using) in a food processor or high-speed blender until incorporated. Then add cacao/chocolate chips if using, and pulse for a few seconds. You can leave some chunks for texture. Form into balls and place in fridge to set. You can store them in fridge for a week or freezer for up to a month.
