You'll Have A Golden Gaytime With These Blissful Balls

If you're from Australia, or even just visited, you know and love Golden Gaytime ice creams. If you're not familiar, then yes, really, there is a popular ice cream in Australia called a Gaytime. 

Equally as popular as a Gaytime is peanut butter. So we put together a bliss ball recipe that is life changing. The sweet crunch of a Gaytime and the decadent richness of peanut butter. Sugar, dairy and gluten free of course. If you have peanut allergies, this recipe might be a good way to go out.

Golden Gaytime Peanut Butter Ball Recipe

  • Takes 15 minutes
  • Makes 15 balls


  • Cashews - 250g
  • Peanut butter - 150g
  • Pitted dates - 80g
  • Water - 50ml
  • Coconut or vanilla protein powder - 1 scoop
  • Cinnamon - 1/2 teaspoon 
  • Sea salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Extra virgin olive oil - 30ml
  • Optional - Chopped peanuts - 50g


  1. Create date paste by boiling the dates in 50mls of hot water on the stove for five minutes, or zapping in the microwave for four minutes
  2. In a food processor, blitz the cashews until they become really crumbled
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and continue blitzing until creamy
  4. If it's too dry, add 30ml of water
  5. The batter should be slightly moist and moldable
  6. Use your hands to turn them into golf size balls
  7. Ideally, although optionally, roll them in chopped peanuts
  8. They're fresh in the fridge for up to four weeks but I like to store in the freezer, otherwise I eat 10 of them in one day #fatboyslim
