Okay, so this is my first post. Ever. I did not intend to make my first recipe with something that had limes in it, I swear. I suppose it was the universe’s way of telling me: when life gives you limes, make a website. So I did! Hope you like it.

Is there a good substitude for the dates? I am unfortunatelly not a fan of the taste, but the combination of cranberries and limes sounds very goods, so would like to make it somehow.

Hey Kimberly, thanks for the question! The dates help add some natural sweetness and stickiness to the balls. We haven't tested it out, but perhaps experimenting with another dried fruit, some syrup, or nut butter to the desired taste and texture could work. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you give it a try 🙂

These bliss balls taste so blissful! I'm so encouraged now to try more bliss ball receipes from you now that I know I love them! Thank you team Sadia <3 you guys are so awesome!

We're so happy to hear, Jana, thank you!

Finally tried this, as we got gifted a few limes. Worked out perfectly, even without a food processer (my 2 year old is horrible afraid of the noise).
I just used ground almonds instead of raw and used a sharp knife to chop up the cashews quite small.
The important thing is to soak the dates in hot water before mashing/cutting them. This helps a lot to hold the dough together. Works for all the recepies I've tried so far.
Obviously the bliss ball taste great, but that is almost a given following PUL recepies

Hi Nina, thanks for taking the time to share the insight and lovely review - it means so much! Hugs to you and your little one ✨

Unbelievably delicious! I made mine with lemon zest and lemon and lime juice (it's what I had). So good!

These energy balls are yummy and are good complements to fruits for fika👌🏻😋. I just put everything, except raisins/cranberries, in my food processor to speed up the process. It worked very well and I had my fika faster🤣. Lime and coconut are a wonderful combination, as it tastes fresh and deliciously keen in parallel. The sole reason for not giving it a 5/5 is that I’m a chocolate fan. A matter of preference😅

Hehe we love chocolate as well, Louise! Glad you enjoyed the balls despite the preference 😜 Perhaps our Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Balls recipe may be a fun one to try pickuplimes.com/recipe/chocol… 🍫

Thank you: I’ll definitely try these one day! I’m working through all your energy balls and bars methodically👩🏼‍🍳. I haven’t found any favourite yet, as all of them are wonderful😋❤️
