THE DATELESS, BLOOD-SUGAR FRIENDLY SWEET TREAT FOR THOSE WITH GROWN UP TASTES IN CHOCOLATE
I love the idea of bliss balls, but in practice they’re sweetened with a truck load of dates. Now, if you regularly consume refined sugar (i.e. sucrose), then moving to naturally sweetened foods is a serious upgrade. Unlike the taxed stuff, fruit sugars come bound up with guthealthy fibre, vitamins and minerals.
But if you’re already refined sugar-free most of the time and still don’t feel your best, perhaps it’s time to look at the amount of natural sugars in your diet. Because, albeit natural, they still impact your blood sugar. Especially if you’ve blitzed them down to a purée, as you do with bliss balls (and smoothies – banana-containing smoothie alert!).
