Raspberry Bliss Balls …

Raspberry Bliss Balls 001

 

These are a perfect little “after school” snack for hungry kids or ideal for anyone looking for a sweet treat but without the guilt. They also happen to taste just like a Cherry Ripe so that’s an added bonus. These won’t be suitable to send to school in lunchboxes because of the almond meal so do be mindful of that. Enjoy!

Clever Tricks, Tips and Hints …

 

  • Fresh raspberries can be very expensive, so frozen raspberries are perfect for this recipe. Keep an eye out for specials at the Supermarket as frozen raspberries are often on sale. I picked up some from Coles this week … half price for less than $3.00.

  1. We love raspberry ones too. I have added beetroot in mine to upp the pink colouring and you don’t really taste it!

  2. My girls went back to school this week and I’ve been looking for some lunch box treats. These will be perfect. Thanks for sharing.

    • You’re welcome, Raychael but just be sure to check your School’s policy re “nuts” as these contain almond meal. Good luck!

  3. I am glad I have found you. I printed the raspberry balls and will make today. I have only ever made chocolate ones but I love putting these into the kids school snacks. And now I have the basic, I can change the flavouring.. yeah

    • Hi Natalie and welcome! Just remember to check your school policy with regards to nuts as this recipe contains almond meal … there are loads of other ball recipes on the the blog though that don’t contain nuts and would be perfect to send in school lunch boxes. I tend to keep these Raspberry Balls for an after school treat!

  4. Yum! What a great idea! I love Bliss Balls but have never thought to use frozen raspberries – very clever!
    Thanks for joining our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party. xxx

    • Thanks for hosting your Fabulous Food Fridays … it’s a great way to introduce readers to new, gorgeous recipes. I just adore raspberries and these little balls of goodness taste just like a Cherry Ripe!

  5. I’ve never thought of using raspberries before but they give a gorgeous pink hue to these treats. Bet they don’t last 2 months in the fridge :)

    • Hi Nancy and welcome! I’m lucky if these last 2 days … my kids and my hubby love these and they seem to disappear in no time at all!

  6. These sound great I hadn’t thought to use raspberries – will be giving these a go for sure.

    • Hope you enjoy them Vicki and thanks for stopping by! These are a lovely sweet treat but the biggest problem is trying to stop at just one!

  7. I love a good bliss ball recipe. What a great idea adding the raspberries!

    • Hi Krissy and welcome … I’ve got loads of other gorgeous Bliss Ball recipes on the blog so make sure you check them out!

  8. I’ve not tried raspberry bliss balls but I adore raspberries so these sound fantastic. I’m a bit tempted to try them doused in cacao too :)

    • Rolling any of the Bliss Balls recipes in some cacao is something I do often and it makes them wickedly delicious!

  9. Oh my, I haven’t made raspberry balls before. Lovely! x
