LACTATION BLISS BALLS

LACTATION BLISS BALLS! 
~ Increase milk supply, naturally~

When life's too short to wait for cookies, make bliss balls!

These bliss balls are for those times when you are run down, tired, or just want a milky boost!



Please note- most women have perfect milk supply. A lactating mother's milk supply is regulated on a supply and demand basis with baby.

Lactating mothers are so amazing. Did you know that their milk changes composition from day to night, differentiates for boys or girls, age and is even sensitive to weather? Check here for more details about milk supply. Please contact a reputable lactation consultant if you have any further questions.


LACTATION BLISS BALLS RECIPE 
(Makes approximately 20 balls)


Ingredients
2  Cups Pitted Dates
1 Cup Fine Desiccated Coconut
½ Cup Oats (I used Quick Oats)
½ Cup Almonds
¼ Cup Cocao
2 Tbs LSA mix*
1 Tbs Brewers' Yeast (do not substitute for other yeasts)
1 Tbs Coconut Oil
1 Tbs Water

For Rolling (optional):
Desiccated Coconut
Freeze dried strawberries (
turn into a powder using a food processor on high speed)
Melted Dark Chocolate
Or leave them naked as the day they were rolled

Method
Blend all ingredients in a food processor on a high speed until you reach a desired consistency. 
You may need to scrape the sides of bowl and re-blend to get an even texture.
Roll into balls, size to your preference.
For added taste and pizazz, choose to coat in one of the listed rolling ingredients- or get creative with your own!

Refrigerate for 2 hours to harden if you wish. If coating in chocolate refrigerate balls on baking paper spaced out on a flat surface.

Will last for up to one week in an airtight container in the fridge... if they haven't been eaten. 

*I chose LSA mix (Linseed, Sunflower Seed, Almonds) for taste and as something that will be more versatile for other baking. You can sprinkle on cereal, muesli or add to smoothies. Buy and store in the fridge for best results.





Enjoy!!
