The perfect little pick-me-up.
“I love making bliss balls to keep as a satiating afternoon snack – ensuring stable blood sugar levels and maintained energy all the way until dinner. These matcha bliss balls are the perfect 4pm indulgence with antioxidant-filled matcha and healthy fats that’ll make you glow from the inside out!” – Jessica Sepel.

- 1 cup almond meal

- 1-2 tsp matcha powder
- 5 dates, pitted and roughly chopped
- 3-4 tbsp filtered water
- Add almond meal, coconut oil, desiccated coconut, matcha powder and dates to a food processor.
