IN SEASON- Apricots are in season between October and March in Australia.
BENEFITS OF APRICOTS- Apricots are a powderhouse of nutrition in a tiny bundle! This amazing little fruit is rich in vitamin C and A (beta- carotine) and a good source of fibre. Due to their cobalt, copper and non- heme iron content, apricots are also good to support healthy blood production and prevent anemia. Apricots’ potassium, magnesium and calcium also make them great for bone health.

Apricot Bliss Balls
- Preparation: 5 minutes
- Cooking: nil
- Makes 12 large bliss balls
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend for 1 minute. If you like “chunky” this will be enough blending but if you prefer “smooth”, keep blending until the mixture is like a paste.
Divide the mixture into 12 pieces and roll into balls in your hands and place in the fridge.
These balls can be kept in the freezer or in an air tight jar in the fridge. They make fantastic snacks for work or during or after exercise.
