I shared why I love green powders so much in my top 10 foods health bloggers love, and these bliss balls were the perfect way to include super greens without the bitter taste.  Sometimes green powders can be a little difficult to eat, so adding them to sweeter foods makes it so much more delicious to health healthy nutritious food.

These super green bliss balls also stack up nutritionally, with…

You only need four ingredients and a blender or food processor.  I used the Garden of Life Raw Organic Perfect Food, but you could use any green powder you want to.  Just be mindful of the recommended serving size as some are stronger than others.  Stick to the recommended serving size unless medically advised otherwise (and no, I’m not a medical expert).
