Chopra Grinfrey Bliss Balls
Aren’t these a ripper?!
These ultimate bliss balls come from Deepak Chopra’s secret recipe to promote a healthy digestion and purify the body – mind.
Just packed the guests at Cabarita Ocean Retreat with a boxful of these little beauties for their Stand Up Paddleboard lesson this morning.
I reckon you’ll love ‘em too – they’re best kept chilled to keep their shape and will keep for up to 7 days in the fridge.
1 cup toasted sesame seeds
1 cup golden raisins or regular raisins
2 teaspoons ground ginger powder
2 inches fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1½ teaspoons ground cardamon
2½ tablespoons coconut oil
- Mix all ingredients together, roll into balls about the size of a small apricot and chill well before serving so as the ingredients bind

Toasted rolled rice and coconut porridge
This deliciously warming Ayurvedic gluten-free breakfast idea came from our good friends at Mondo Organics in Brisbane.
I’ve tweaked it a little to suit what was in my pantry today. The perfect brekky after Sunday morning yoga and a great way to start your surfing day.
Rolled rice is available at most good food stores and organic outlets. Best to use fresh turmeric for its antioxidant properties and up to you whether you want yoghurt too. I prefer mine with a squeeze of lime.
2 cups rolled rice
½ cup shredded or flaked coconut
½ tablespoon coconut oil
2/3 cup dates, finely chopped
1 knob turmeric, peeled and finely grated (about 2 teaspoons)
½ tsp ground cardamom
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground ginger
2 teaspoons raw honey
1/2 green apple, grated or a squeeze of lime
¼ cup biodynamic yoghurt
1 tablespoon roasted pepitas or sunflower seeds
- Place the oil in a large frying pan and add the rice and coconut
- Roast in a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat until starting to change colour
- Add 4 cups of water, dates and spice
- Cook until thick porridge starts to form – about 5 minutes
- Remove from heat and stir in honey
- Serve with grated green apple, yoghurt, roasted seeds and/or a squeeze of lime
