Guilt Free Treats: Beetroot & Kapakapa Bliss Balls


Beetroot & Kapakapa Bliss Balls

1 cup grated beetroot firmly packed
1 cup dates
1/2 cup coconut (plus an additional 1/2 cup for rolling) 
1/2 cup nuts (I used almonds in the ones photographed, you could use any nuts/seeds)
1-2 tablespoons of kapakapa

  1. Place ingredients in the food processor and blitz for 3-5 minutes, I stopped the food processor regularly and scrap the mixture into the middle with a spatula. 
  2. Once the mixture is clumpy (but try not to have chunks of nuts), roll a tablespoon of mixture into a ball, roll in the additional coconut. Keep in a sealed container in the fridge. 


An optional ingredient is a tablespoon of honey to make it a bit sweeter, however, myself and friends didn't think it was needed. Up to you!



If you are wondering what kapakapa is, it is 'natural chocolate syrup', that is dairy free, gluten free, no added sugar and an added bonus NZ made! I recently ordered mine from 'and they lived green' (you will find them on facebook) and I'm absolutely loving it - along with my toddler. If you are a chocolate fend like me, that also doesn't want to eat too much sugar, you will love it!


If you don't have any kapakapa yet, you could replace it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of cocoa, or 1/4 to 1/2 a block of roughly chopped dark chocolate.

Enjoy!
