Recipe: sin-free chocolate & kale bliss balls

Chocolate and kale bliss balls

Chocolate and kale aren’t usually two words you hear in the same sentence, which is why these rule-breaking bliss balls, which I conjured in my own kitchen, are just something you have to try for yourself. So simple to make and so morish. Rock-‘n’-roll em today!

YOU’LL NEED: Chocolate and kale bliss balls

  • 1/2 cup raw cacao
  • 2 tablespoons walnut (or other nut) butter
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon chlorella powder
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia/flax mix
  • 3 probiotic capsules – lose the capsule, keep the powder
  • 1 – 1  1/2 cups of washed kale
  • 1/2 cup spearmint leaves
  • Shredded coconut

Tip: Always use organic if it’s available to you and it’s best to buy fair-trade cacao and chocolate.


  1. Blend everything in a Vitamix or similar until you have a thick consistency (but make sure it’s not liquid!).
  2. If the texture’s too thick, just add filtered water.
  3. Roll into balls and roll in shredded coconut or chia seeds.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour before eating (if you can!!!)

They’re the ultimate cheeky green treat for your mouth…
