Some healthy indulgence on Valentine’s Day!
Date and nut blissballs.
Although I’ve used extremely clean and nourishing ingredients to make these sweet treats, I must say they taste better than any store bought desserts I’ve had.
The beautiful scarlett colour comes from dehydrated Beetroot powder.
My simple must try recipe is below.

Hi, these look amazing. Did you use Mejool dates or just regular dried dates. Thanks Deirdre
I used Mejool dates as I still had some that I brought back from Dubai. However any good quality dates work perfectly well in this recipe.
