With winter approaching it’s wise to get some good quality Vitamin C into you and your family and our bliss balls with Camu Camu are the best way to do that and they are so easy to put together. They are packed with goodness to support your immune and nerve systems and they are a quick way to top up your kids with good Vitamin C by popping a couple in their lunch box.

Our Camu Camu (Vitamin C) bliss balls are a wonderful way to get organic, raw and powdered Vitamin C, from food, into your families diet. No need to buy over the counter supplements containing synthetic Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid made from GMO corn. Say NO to that and say YES to our Camu Camu –  organically grown, powdered and nothing added!  It’s pure Vitamin C… from nature!

Did you know Camu Camu is the richest source of Vitamin C of any fruit? It has a tangy taste so adding it to your bliss balls or a juice, or smoothie will be best.

I made these whilst we had tradies working around the house so they became my test audience and to my delight they loved them and asked for more! I can guarantee they won’t last long.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups organic medjool dates (pitted)
  • 1 cup organic almond meal
  • 1 cup organic desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup organic chopped (small) pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup of organic dark chocolate (approx. 30grams)
  • 1 Tbsp of Vital Wellbeing’s Organic Raw Camu Camu
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp organic ground ginger
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt to taste or 1/2 cap of All Natural Liquid Magnesium
  • 1/4 cup organic chia seeds, raw cacao or shredded coconut for dusting/rolling when formed

Here’s how to put it together:

  1. Using your blender or Thermomix ground down the pumpkin seeds. Remove and set aside in a bowl with the almond meal.
  2. Using your blender or Thermomix ground down either the dark chocolate. Remove from bowl and set aside.
  3. Place the pitted medjool dates in the blender or Thermomix and chop until a dates start to combine.
  4. Add the almond and pumpkin seed mix as well as the ground dark chocolate, desiccated coconut, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and ginger and Camu Camu to the blender or Thermomix and combine until there are small pieces. Warning: watch closely so you don’t overly blend the mixture.
  5. Roll into small / medium balls using the warmth of your hands to mold them together.
  6. Place some chai seeds, cacao and desiccated coconut on a plate and roll the bliss balls in either or try a combination e.g. cacao and chia seeds together.
  7. Place the rolled bliss balls into a glass container lined with baking paper so they don’t stick. Once filled on the bottom place another piece of baking paper over the top and add more bliss balls.
  8. I popped ours in the fridge to set for about an hour – but only after the tradies and I had eaten some immediately!

Yield:

  • I made about 30 bliss balls form this batch however I didn’t make them large but they weren’t tiny either. I thought if I make them a little smaller two can be taken in a lunch or had as a snack with a cuppa tea.
  • If you do make them larger you can expect about 14-15 balls from this batch.

Options:

  1. Roll in chia seeds, cacao or desiccated coconut or do a bit of all for variety.
  2. Roll some in freeze dried raspberry powder for a pop of colour!

Storage:

  • Keep these in a glass air tight container in the fridge for about a week but ours were all gone after 72 hours! Kids love them at all hours of the day as did we.

Order Camu Camu for you and your family… you’ll notice the difference!
