  • 2 tbsp rice syrup
  • 2 tbsp xylitol

Pistachio & Matcha Bliss Ball Recipe

matcha pistachio bliss ball recipe

Delicious Pistachio & Matcha Bliss Ball Recipe- No Bake, Guilt free treat!

This is a simple and absolutely gorgeous recipe which also makes for a delicious gift if you package up in a festive tin for your loved ones! The stunning green colour comes both from the pistachios and also the Zen Green Tea matcha powder. Matcha is pure green tea leaves stone ground into a fine powder- it has the highest antioxidant levels out of any naturally occurring substance, and is known for its metabolism, and energy boosting properties. We love to drink matcha on its own as a beautiful tea but it can also be used to make fantastic recipes!

Ingredients

1 teaspoon Zen Green Tea matcha (www.zengreentea.com.au)

1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
2 x 20ml tablespoons almond meal
2 x 20ml tablespoons coconut flour
2 x 20ml tablespoons water
2 x 20ml tablespoons rice malt syrup
1 x 20ml tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup shelled pistachio nuts, chopped

Directions

  1. In a food processor, blend the cashew nuts, coconut, almond meal, coconut flour and Zen Green Tea matcha powder until you get the texture of fine crumbs.
  2. Add the water, rice malt syrup and melted coconut oil and blend until everything is well combined. The mixture should be sticky enough to hold together, but not so sticky that you can’t roll it into balls. If the mixture is too sticky, add a tiny bit more coconut flour. If it’s too dry, add a touch more water.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls and coat in the chopped pistachio nuts, pressing the nuts lightly into the balls to make them stay. Leave the balls in the fridge to set. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Note: Matcha green tea powder is an incredible superfood. It contains the highest level of antioxidants compared to any other natural substance. Ensure you buy from a high quality source as high quality matcha is naturally sweet, vibrant green and has a fine texture.

  • 1 tablespoon Zen Green Tea Matcha, plus another tablespoon for dusting
  • 340 grams bittersweet chocolate, chopped finely
  • Pinch of Matcha Salt or kosher salt
    1. Bring cream to a simmer in a small saucepan over gentle heat, add the maple syrup and brown sugar, and stir until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of matcha, stir until dissolved, and set aside.
    2. Place the chocolate in a large mixing bowl and pour in the cream mixture. Mix thoroughly, and pour into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Smooth it out with a rubber spatula. Cool in the refrigerator for about an hour.
    3. Using a spoon, scoop out a heaping teaspoon, and make a ball using the palms of your hands. Repeat until all the chocolate is used –you should wind up with about 50 truffles. Line them up on a tray or plate, and dust them with the additional matcha, using a fine sieve. Top with a very light sprinkling of matcha.

“I cannot express enough how amazed I was after I made these desserts! I took them to my grandmothers birthday party last week and everyone was raving about them. Would definitely recommend trying this recipe!” – Becky Davies
