Pink Pitaya Bliss Balls
I absolutely love having my freezer stocked with homemade bliss balls, and usually have one or two varieties in there at the same time. That way I always have a snack to suit my mood for the day.
Having healthy snacks on hand is key to keeping your blood sugar stable, which is super important to stay hormonally balanced. Homemade bliss balls are also a cheaper, more environmentally friendly and often healthier alternative to store bought, single wrapped bliss balls.
These pink pitaya balls would fit perfectly for easter, don't you think? You could definitely make them smaller, or egg-shaped to serve as a healthier alternative to easter candy.
Pitaya is a super fruit grown in tropical regions of South America and South East Asia. Pink Pitaya is known to be high in fiber and rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, magnesium, zink and calcium (to name a few). Buying exotic fruits in powder form is also a great idea since it's more environmentally friendly than shipping fresh fruit across the globe.
I hope you like these as much as I do! They are the perfect mix between sweet and fruity, with earthy notes from the maca. Happy Easter!

1 Tbsp cashew butter
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1) Process all ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough forms.
