Cottage Cheese, Apricot, Coconut & Chia Bliss-balls
Make a big batch and keep a jar of these gems handy to make good snack choices through your day.
- 250g Brancourts cottage cheese (Classic, Lactose free)
- 200g dried apricots, roughly chopped
- 100ml coconut water
- 2 tablespoons white chia seeds
- ½ cup LSA mix
- ½ cup desiccated coconut
- 1/3 cup desiccated coconut (extra) for rolling
In a bowl combine the cottage cheese, apricots, coconut water and chia. Stir and allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Transfer apricots to the bowl of a food processor with chopping blade. Add LSA and coconut. Use the pulse button to combine and mix ingredients with the aim to have a textured mix, not smooth in consistency.
Using a tablespoon take a heaped spoonful of the mix and roll into a ball.
Place the extra coconut onto a plate and roll the balls in the coconut.
Chill for a minimum 1hour ideally 1.5 hours to allow balls to become firmer.
Note – These Bliss Balls require refrigeration (due to the cheese) and will keep in a covered container for up to 5 days.
