I've been making bliss balls also known as protein balls for light nibbles at work, to stave of boredom snacking, and moreso since becoming an ambassador for Froothie, as the Optimum 9400 Blender makes light work of blasting whole nuts to dust in moments. So I made some more yesterday this time with the addition of pistachio nuts. I also decided to use my shamrock cookie cutter to shape some of the bliss balls.
I have a number of recipes bookmarked to make with spirulina, but if you have any suggestions or recommendations to use up my spirulina powder, do let me know. I am sharing these Spirulina Pistachio Date Bites with Vegetarian Mama for Gluten Free Fridays - Party #134.
Pistachio Date Spirulina Bites
Makes about 16
140g dried dates
60 pistachio nuts, whole or ground
Optional:1 teaspoon cold water
1 teaspoon spirulina powder for coating
Add all the ingredients except for the water and spirulina powder in a food processor (I used my Optimum 9400 Froothie) and blitz for a minute or so or until the mixture is sticky. If the mixture is not sticky, then pour in the optional water and blitz again.
Then using a teaspoon, scoop enough of the fruit mixture then roll into a ball.
Roll in the spriulina powder and leave in fridge to firm up.
Good for 2 weeks if kept refrigerated.
