3 Bliss Ball Recipes!

For Christmas Luke and Keira got me a book pretty much dedicated to bliss balls and I spent a good while drooling over the pages. In cafes you can pay up to five dollars a pop for these bad boys, so I knew I had to give it a go making them all by myself. I won't lie, I was also inspired by Hannah. Seeing all her balls on her stories make my mouth water!

Today I'm sharing with you three recipes. They're easy, because all you do is pop all the ingredients together and whiz them in a food processor. And then roll into the perfect bite sized snacks. Initially I felt a little bit daunted when I was buying the ingredients. But I will tell you now they are worth it. Particularly when you've hit the wall and need an instant energy pick me up! Or just want something yum but nourishing to eat.

I've popped the video below and all details as far as recipes too! Plus original links to where I got these recipes from.
