Do you struggle to find a satisfying snack for your morning or afternoon tea? I love my chocolate and find winter sees me reaching for comfort snacks a little more often than I should!! So Sunday morning I decided to play around with a Bliss Ball recipe with all my favourite “health-boosting” ingredients in them, including the Doterra Smart & Sassy Metabolic Blend. Previously I have used the Wild Orange, Peppermint and Lime oils to flavor my bliss balls, but decided to try something a little different with these ones and incorporate the powerful metabolism benefits of Smart and Sassy. When ingested Smart & Sassy is calorie free, supports healthy metabolism and can help to manage hunger cravings!

The result…… they taste delicious! These little balls are jam packed with lots of goodness to support both your body and mind, and are perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth too!

So, what do they have in them?

Cacao Powder – High in Anti oxidants.

Chia Seeds – excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fibre, iron, and calcium.

Pepitas – High in anti oxidants and magnesium.

Maca – adds a beautiful caramel flavour and great source of fibre.

Collagen – regulates your metabolism and supports connective tissue and cells to aid in the body’s natural healing.

Plant -based protein powder – Plant-based proteins tend to be lower in calories and fat than animal proteins but higher in fibre and essential nutrients (– Nature’s Path)

Coconut Oil – high in healthy saturated fats that have different effects than most other fats in your diet. These fats can boost fat burning and provide your body and brain with quick energy. ( – Healthline)

Smart & Sassy – helps manage hunger throughout the day while supporting healthy metabolism and promoting a positive mood.
