17 Apr Strawberries n cream Bliss Balls
Strawberries n cream bliss balls. Two words for these – healthy and yum. How great they get to be in the same sentence right? These bliss balls are vegan, gluten and refined sugar free. We added some plant based protein powder to ramp that creamy taste. How great it also sustains energy levels by balancing blood sugar levels.
*makes 8-12 balls depending on the size you make them
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1 tbsp nut milk
- 4 pitted dates
- 1 cup macadamias
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- 6-8 freeze dried strawberries
- Place all ingredients into your blender or food processor
- Blend until all combined.
- Roll out into balls and refrigerate.
Almonds, macadamias and protein powder make these a high protein snack. Protein is essential for energy production and the balancing our blood sugar levels.
Agave syrup should be watched in those who are fructose intolerant, but can easily be switched for a sweetener of your choice. We chose unrefined, dark agave syrup as it’s mineral rich, low GI, and you don’t need a lot to get a sweet flavour!
If that afternoon sugar craving is calling you, these bliss balls are the perfect way to satisfy that itch. The combination of protein, fibre and healthy fats are all you need to balance those blood sugar levels.
