Mandarin & Coconut Bliss Balls


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • Zest of one sumo citrus mandarin
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed juice from your mandarin
  • 2 heaped tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • A handful of pitted dates (finely chopped)
  • Extra mandarin zest and desiccated coconut for the coating


1. Add the almonds and cashews to a food processor and grind until fine. Add the dates, coconut, cinnamon, cocoa powder and mandarin zest then grind until even.

2. In a separate bowl mix the coconut oil, juice and honey. Slowly add this liquid to your mixture and process until it forms a ball (make sure you add enough for the mixture to bind and but not so it becomes too wet).

3. You should be able to roll around 15 large health balls/30 smaller ones depending what you prefer.

4. Roll/coat the health balls in the left over coconut and mandarin zest and put the fridge to set for an hour.
