Pumpkin Bliss Balls

Do you know a yoga studio that is not into bliss balls?? Here’s our latest take.

I have Tanya, one of our new tts, to thank for the inspiration behind this recipe. Knowing we were about to embark on a month of “pratyahara” (ie- f0r most of us, quitting chocolate)… she made us these delicious bliss balls. She’s one of those talented people who can whip up anything with what’s available in the fridge and pantry so she had no set recipe… but with a bit of trial and error, i finally have a version to share. Enjoy

Ingredients (but be playful with what you have around the kitchen too)

1/2 cup roast pumpkin
2-3 dates
cup of ground seeds/ nuts (or almond meal… whatever you have- make sure it represents the dry component of the mixture)
teaspoon or 2 of chais style ground spices (think cardamom/ ginger/ star anise/ cinnamon etc)
shredded coconut- some for the mixture/ some for rolling the balls

Blend all ingredients… make balls…. roll in coconut…. refridgerate….

Voila !!

yum

Superfoods Salad

The inspiration for this salad comes from Chargrill Chicken, up the road from my yoga studio. The delicious salad dressing comes from my fellow Dharma Yogi Jenna Pacelli, who is on the same vegan journey as I am on.

Vegetarian Lasagne

Little Dynamo Martine Allars, who had the intrepid task of teaching my Level III students on Saturday mornings, cooked me a delicious vego lasagne a few months back. I have used the fact that I have a blog to squeeze the recipe out of her.
For all those students who want more Martine in 2014, stay tuned… especially late feb/ early March.,. She’ll be back.
