Our healthy Thermomix Chocolate Orange Bliss Balls take just 10 minutes to make and are the perfect freezer-friendly snack!
Bliss balls are always a massive hit in our house (especially with my little 3 year old!). They're so quick and easy to make, are the perfect snack on the go (or for car-trips!)... plus they're healthy!
These Thermomix Chocolate Orange Bliss Balls are based on this original recipe by Changing Habits but I've modified the quantities a little to suit my taste preferences and have also included Thermomix instructions. Even if you're a little unsure of using the turmeric, please, please do! You can't really taste it but it makes the bliss balls AMAZING!
I really think the two star ingredients in these balls are the orange zest and the sea salt. You need that good pinch of sea salt to make all of the flavours mix together perfectly.. and the orange zest adds a bit of freshness. YUM!
We have SO many bliss ball recipes on ThermoBliss now... you can check them all out here. But these Thermomix Chocolate Orange Bliss Balls are definitely up there as some of my current faves!
