Strawberry Coco Bliss Balls

—  found in  Food  —

There's a huge trend right now in the health food industry -- to incorporate supplements into your food. I like this. I would much rather eat food than choke back 5-10 different pills.

So, why not kick up your recipe a knotch by adding a whole food based protein supplement to your favourite treats! I created these little balls of bliss on Sunday afternoon when I was playing around in my kitchen.

Now I must emphasize that supplements do NOT replace nutritious "whole" foods. That's why I chose this vegan protein powder because it's contains a comprehensive formula of the richest source of vegetarian proteins including non-GMO pea, cranberry, brown rice, alfalfa and hemp.

You could have 2 of these for a nutritious, fat-burning snack or dessert. The protein and fibre will keep you fuller longer and cravings away!

Ingredients:

8 medjol dates (remove seeds and soak in water for a couple of hours)

1 cup walnuts

1 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup flavoured protein powder. I used Genuine Health strawberry flavoured vegan protein powder

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsulfured)

Method: Place all the ingredients (excluding the coconut flakes) into your food processor and blend until smooth - about 1-2 minutes. Form into 1.5 balls and roll in flaked coconut. Place in freezer for a couple of hours or until you are ready to enjoy to let them harden a bit.

Makes 10-12 balls.

EnJOY!

I will definitely be trying these! I have never tried strawberry flavoured protein before so I'm looking forward to the change. Experiments in the kitchen are always fun...when they turn out! :)

Hi Joy! Just wondering if you could substitute hemp hearts or ground flaxseed for the chia seed? Is one better than the other? Thanks! Leigha

I cannot find the genuine health strawberry protein powder. Can you tell me where I might find it?

I made a different version of these and used the chocolate flavoured protein powder instead and 1 tsp of pure maple syrup instead of vanilla extract and they tasted like a turtles chocolate. Amazing!

Thanks for the recipe! I love these. I added a dash of water as they were not moist enough, maybe i did not soak the dates long enough... Are medjol dates just regular dates?
