These bliss balls are an incredibly delicious substitute for dessert. I often eat them as a midday pick me up as well. Matcha is incredibly high in antioxidants and has also been shown to boost liver, brain and heart health. Matcha does contain caffeine, but won’t leave you crashing like coffee and sugar might.
