It’s reeling toward final few days of hectic school, annual day practices, listlessness,… all catching up here
Though I don’t go to school I really wish I did have to. I miss terribly being in the midst of the bustling energy, I miss being the teacher- learner. It was really wonderful when a few of my former students caught up with me ( thanks to social media ) and expressed their joy in their recent CBSE exam results. It was a pleasant surprise and am really thankful to them for the updates. this made me want to go back to teaching so badly. For now the wait is on…..Sigh!!!
Anyway, the energy to early morning wake ups in my house, is coming up as unpleasant “”grunts and”I don’t want breakfast..”whimpering s.
So just to shake things up thought will introduce a “bliss ball”
When I first heard the word “bliss ball”.. I was quite fascinated by it. It’s true, it is a small ball of wholesomeness and blissful as you don’t drag yourself through the whole ordeal of breakfast.
Now came the hunt..
What can we load in?
a carb option
A protein option
A bit of fat
And more flavor.
All right let’s set to work. The cranberry color was so attractive a few were gobbled up as soon as I got some together.
The idea clicked, a pretty bliss ball, nearly pink and the taste of Coconut and cranberry. oh yummy yummy yummy.. in my tummy”!!”.
I might serve these on festival days too as “ladoo”. They are so lovely, even to look at as prasadam / naivedyum . Don’t wait, catch the recipe and make some soon. You can see your morning getting easier.
