What are bliss balls?
Bliss balls are small, bite-sized balls made from a combination of nutrient-rich ingredients. They are typically raw or no-bake and require minimal preparation. Because of their size, simplicity, and energy boosting effect, they're a popular convenient snack or healthy dessert for busy days or snacking on the go.
The shelf life of your bliss balls will always vary depending on the ingredients used and how they are stored.
Generally, bliss balls can last for about 1 to 2 weeks when stored in ideal conditions. I always recommend storing bliss balls in the refrigerator in an airtight container or a tightly sealed zip top bag for best long term meal prep.
If your bliss balls are stored at room temperature, their shelf life will be shortened and may stay fresh for only 4 to 5 days.
Absolutely! In fact - I recommend it. While bliss balls can last for a couple of weeks in the fridge, they will last for months in the freezer. Plus, many of them are made with dates as a main ingredient, which means they don't freeze completely solid. This allows them to defrost and be ready to eat again in just minutes!
If you've frozen date balls or energy balls in the past and found that they stuck together in the container or freezer bag, you can flash freeze them on a baking sheet before transferring to a long term storage container. Alternatively, you can place a sheet of parchment paper between the layers of bliss balls in your chosen storage container.
In general, energy balls are typically made with nutritious ingredients such as raw nuts, seeds, seed butters, medjool dates, healthy fats, and minimal added sugar, if any.
With that being said, each person should determine for themselves with the assistance of their doctor, if needed, whether or not a particular recipe will be suitable for their diet and lifestyle. What is healthy and good for you may not be good for someone else and vice versa!
