Macadamia, Lime & Coconut Bliss Balls

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

We are lucky enough to regularly get delicious, organic macadamias and macadamia butter from a local farm here in the Northern Rivers.  Macadamias are absolute little health bombs, with a good fatty acid profile of unsaturated fats including omega 3’s, dietary fibre, plant sterols, and a wide range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  

This is a new summer bliss ball recipe we developed … to give that feeling of lying in a hammock on a tropical island!

Preparation Time:  15 minutes


Makes:  Approx. 10-12 balls

We use all organic or biodynamic ingredients


  • 1 cup macadamia butter (or macadamias blended into a butter in food processor)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut + 1 additional 1 cup to roll balls in
  • ½ cup coconut butter
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup or raw honey
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
  • 1 tsp high quality salt


  • Put macadamia butter, 1 cup of the shredded coconut, coconut butter, maple or honey, lime juice, vanilla and half of the lime zest in food processor and blend until combined.
  • Wet hands and roll mix into walnut sized balls.
  • Mix together the additional cup of coconut, zest and salt in a bowl, and roll each ball in this blend.
  • Place balls on a tray and put in freezer for at least 2 – 3 hours.

Serving Suggestion:

Remove from freezer and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then enjoy as an anytime, anywhere snack!
