Festive Jingle Balls

These luxuriously rich and healthy balls will have you zinging all the way to Christmas Day with bells on. Start out with the nuts, some dried fruit and then add a selection of your favourite powders such as mesquite, macqui or maca. Add a hint of premium food grade essential oil like peppermint or Christmas spirit and you’re good to go.

1 cup macadamia nuts
½ cup currants

2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons cacao butter, melted
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon mesquite powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon organic vanilla essence

In loving memory of Jess Ainscough. This was our final segment for 2012 and what a hoot it was! We had a cracker of a time shooting season two of HeathtalksTV in Melbourne, graciously hosted by organically minded friends (whom I have known since my Collingwood days) Walter and Dorota Trupp from Trupp Cooking School who shared their fab kitchen located near the Prahran Market in Melbourne.
