Red Velvet Bliss Balls

Are you a fan of red velvet cake? Then I’m sure you’ll love my healthy red velvet bliss balls! So quick to make these striking little balls are a little lighter than my usual bliss balls as they are made of desiccated coconut rather than almonds which makes them lovely, fluffy and very moist. The gorgeous red colour comes from a splash of beetroot juice (you can pick this up easily in the fresh juice section of the supermarket –  I also love adding beetroot juice to smoothie bowls as it gives them such an amazing rich red colour).

These beauties can be coated in more desiccated coconut which gives amazing contrast or some raw cacao or crushed nuts and seeds.  If you wanted to make them more chocolaty you add a little more cacao, and as usual I have added a pinch of Himalayan salt as I love the depth of flavour it gives.

 I used The Coconut Merchants lovely organic desiccated coconut – If you fancy trying any of their delicious products, they have kindly set up a special discount code so that you can get £5 off. Simply head over to their website and use this code: cm4nikiwebster
