Protein bliss balls

16-Nov-2015

We are coming up to the time of the year where we start to forget about healthy eating, overindulging in food and alcohol. There is also the stress of finding presents for friends and family. Battling through the crowds of people in the mall, getting those Christmas specials. We are often tired from the year of hard work and find ourselves eating more chocolate and other sugary foods. As a result, we are not kept full and start reaching for more sugar to keep us going. It really is a vicious circle.

 

Creating some fun, easy, YUMMY and nutritious foods and treats isn’t difficult, it’s about having the right recipes. Well my friends, look no further, I have put together the easiest treat that you can have for snacks, add to platters to share with friends or sweet treats for the kids. They are protein packed so they will keep you full, rich in nutrients, sweetened with dates and very scrumptious.

 

You need:

- 1/2 cup of dates

- 1 cup of mixed nuts (i used Mother Earth deluxe)

- 3 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds

- 1 scoop of vanilla Clean Lean Protein

- 2 Tbsp. Lifefoods Super-food Smoothie powder (contains 40% cacao, 20% maca powder, 20% mesquite powder and 20% lucuma powder)

- Boiling water

- Shredded coconut

 

 

 

Method:

- Add dates, nuts and pumpkin seeds in a bowl

- Pour boiling water and leave for 10 minutes

- After 10 minutes, drain the water and add ingredients to a food processor

- Add protein powder and super food smoothie powder to processor

- Blend all ingredients until they form a ball in the food processor

- Pour shredded coconut on a plate

- Roll the mixture in to little balls in the your hands and then roll them in the coconut

- Put in a container and let them set in the fridge to firm up

- Store in the container in the fridge for up to a week
