If you loved these healthy lemon bliss balls then you’ll be equally pleased with this orange ginger recipe!
Made with just a handful of whole, nutritious ingredients, these orange ginger bliss balls are naturally sweetened with dates and perfect for a pre-workout or mid-day snack. I’ve even brought them as a dessert to parties.
I also find that the ginger is really nice on my stomach.
Ginger has been used for thousands of years to help with digestive issues. Personally, I’ve found that drinking ginger tea when I’m sick is one of the best ways to manage nausea.
However, most of the research has been in specific populations including pregnant women, chemotherapy patients, and post-surgical patients.
But as ginger has been shown to be safe in doses that are less than 1,500 mg/day, it’s a generally safe option for otherwise healthy individuals to try for an upset stomach as well.
Times when ginger is generally not recommended include:
These vegan energy balls are for sure a healthy option as they’re:
As I’ve been trying to up my calories recently for health reasons, these ginger bites have been a life-saver. Not only are they nutrient-dense, but the flavor is just so good.
Trust me, when you’re trying to up your calories, it’s super helpful to have foods that provide calories as well as help with nausea.
Of course, if weight gain isn’t your goal, then these are also a great swap for less healthy sweet options. Just pop one or two in a bag and take them with you to work or when traveling.
To make these healthy orange ginger bliss balls, you’ll need a handful of whole ingredients:
If you’re new to making energy bites/bliss balls, don’t worry as they’re super simple to make! As long as you have a high-powered food processor then you’re good to go!
Step 1: You’ll start by pulsing cashews into a coarse sand-like texture. I like to think of it as smaller than pea-sized but before it turns into a flour-like consistency.
Step 2: After that, you’ll just add all the other ingredients, pulse, scrape, pulse, scrape — you get the idea.
If you notice that your food processor is getting hot, be sure to take a break to let the motor cool down. I’ve actually broken smaller, less powerful food processors before making a similar recipe.
Step 3: Before rolling into balls, I recommend tasting your bliss ball mixture to make sure it’s your perfect balance of orange and ginger.
Step 4: Finally, roll into balls and place them in the freezer for 15 minutes to help them firm up a bit.
To store: After that, you can either keep them stored in the fridge for 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 4 months. Just make sure that they’re in an airtight container.
Adding CBD is 100% optional.
Personally, I occasionally use CBD to help manage my anxiety. But there are other reasons why someone may choose to use CBD, including:
Topically, CBD creams can also be helpful for reducing muscle soreness. If you’re curious to try CBD or need to re-stock, CBDistillery is currently offering New Mind readers 15% off when they enter NEWMIND at checkout!
I used 2 full drops of their THC-Free 83mg CBD tincture. That means that each bite has about 10 mg of CBD.
To put that in perspective, studies have shown CBD effectiveness at doses between 20-600 mg. That’s a big range! As a result, make sure to adjust the amount you add to your personal needs.
