Video Recipe

Makes: Approx. 14

Serves: 14

Christmas Bliss Balls


  • Vitamix


  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews or blanched almonds
  • 1 cup medjool dates (pitted)⁠
  • 1/2 cup cherries (pitted)⁠
  • 1 cup shredded or fine coconut⁠
  • 1/4 cup of beetroot⁠ (peeled)
  • 1/4 Tbsp Maple Syrup⁠
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil⁠
  • Sprinkle of rock salt to taste⁠


  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select Variable 5 and pulse 6 times.
  3. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and quickly increase the speed to 10, then override to High.
  4. Use the tamper to effectively press the ingredients into the blades whilst processing.
  5. Blend for 50 seconds or until desired consistency is reached, and stop the machine.
  6. Store in fridge or freezer until firm.
  7. Roll into balls and roll through shredded coconut.


If using the Vitamix Ascent 2L Container, you will need to stop the machine and scrape the sides. The 1.4L Ascent Wet Container being released in Australia in mid-2020 will be more ideal for this recipe when making in an Ascent Series Blender.
