Mango Bliss Balls


A nourishing pick-me-up snack!


These bitesize snacks can be enjoyed as a fuel source before training, added to kids lunchboxes (if allowed nuts), or for when that 3pm slump calls for a sugar hit. Because they contain natural sugars and are loaded with healthy fats and fibre they won’t spike your blood sugars leaving you feeling energised and satisfied for longer.



*rough estimates - no need to be exact with measurements

  • 1 cup dried mango
  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/3 cup almonds or cashews
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut + a little more for coating
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil



  1. Pre-soak nuts overnight in warm water.
  2. Add all ingredients to blender and blitz until combined.
  3. Form balls and roll into coconut.
  4. Set in fridge for at least 60 minutes. Can be stored in fridge for up to 2 weeks (if they last that long!)


Note: You can use any nut combination. I’ve used almonds, Brazil nuts, macadamia and cashews. 1-2 varieties is more than enough.
