Thermomix Chocolate Orange Bliss Balls

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!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 16 balls

Ingredients

  • 200 g roasted almonds
  • 100 g pitted dates (see notes)
  • 40 g cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • zest and juice of 1 and a 1/2 oranges
  • good pinch of sea salt (see notes)
  • 50 g shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Place the almonds, pitted dates and cacao nibs into the Thermomix bowl. Pulse for 5-10 seconds on Turbo speed (or until finely chopped). 

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse again on Turbo speed for a further 5-10 seconds or until the mixture can easily be rolled into firm balls (see notes). 

  3. Roll the mixture into balls and place into an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months. 

Recipe Notes

You can use pitted dried dates or medjool dates in this recipe. 

If the mixture is too crumbly to roll into firm balls, add a little more orange juice and mix again.

Taste the mixture as you go and add a little more orange zest, sea salt, turmeric or cinnamon to suit your taste.

  1. Do you think you could leave the nuts out and would it compromise the taste? Would love to do these for my kids lunchbox but their school is nut free 🙁

      Hi Eva, this will definitely change the taste and texture. You could try replacing them with oats but it will certainly be different (but still yum!).
