These Christmas Pudding Bliss Balls will be a festive favourite! And the good news is, they’re packed full of nutritious ingredients, like nuts, flaxseeds, and protein. 


Makes approx. 12 (GF, Vegan)


  • 8 dates, seeds removed  
  • 1 ½ cups nuts of choice (mix and match walnuts, almonds, cashews, or macadamias) 
  • 2 tbsp PHGG 
  • ¼ cup chia or flax seeds 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1-2 tsp ground ginger (depending on how ginger-spiced you like it) 
  •  ½ tsp all spice 
  • ½ cup vanilla protein powder of choice 
  • 1 tbsp molasses  


  • Vegan white chocolate buttons
  • Cranberries or goji berries


  • Food processor


  1. Soak dates in boiling water. 
  2. Add all ingredients (except dates) to a food processor and process briefly to break nuts into smaller pieces. 
  3. Drain dates well, reserving liquid in a separate bowl, then add dates to the food processor.  
  4. Process well until a smooth mix forms. Add a tsp of date liquid if the mix is too dry. 
  5. Roll the mix into balls and place in a container and into the freezer for minimum of 15 minutes. 
  6. After the balls have set, melt the chocolate in a shallow dish. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the balls and top with a cranberry/goji berry on top! 
  7. Return to the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes before serving. 
  8. Will keep for 1 week in an air-tight container.
