Healthy Snacks – Protein Balls
180 protein balls are great because they can be prepared in less than 5 minutes and are perfect to snack on at work, home or on your way home from yoga.
180 Nutrition are a great all natural protein superfood and here at Yoga Business Chicks we are BIG fans! We love this recipe and had to share it!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1-2 hours in the fridge to set
Makes: 32 (approximately)
2 cups of 180 Natural Protein Superfood (chocolate or coconut)
1/2 a cup of melted organic coconut oil
Fresh Fruit – A whole mango or a handful of strawberries finely diced
Dried Fruit – 1/2 a cup of dried cherries or prunes finely diced (any dried fruit will work)
(Note: If you are trying to lose weight, you might like to go easy on the fruit, to reduce the sugar..)
1. Mix the 180 Natural Protein Superfood and diced fruit in a big bow.
2. Add the melted coconut oil and mix well. You will need to add enough oil to make the mixture slightly moist and sticky, so it can bind together to make a ball.
3. Take small handfuls of the mixture, compress with hands and roll into a ball of desired size. (Just like making meatballs).
4. Place balls on plate, keeping them separate from each other. Place the plate into the fridge over night, or for at least 1-2hrs, to allow the balls to set.
180 is a great protein superfood which can be used in smoothies, juices, and as a gluten substitute such as in these protein balls. The original receipe was posted HERE
