The perfect way to get a hit of superfoods and power you through your day. Even if you don’t like the taste of wheatgrass but feel like you should be eating it, this recipe makes it much easier to hide the flavour of your least favourite superfood powders, also try it with the nasty green spirulina! I always experiment with energy ball flavours and have stock of them in the freezer, they are perfect for travelling or taking to work for a healthy energy kick. Take them frozen in your bag and they will soon be edible, freezing them helps the, keep their shape and makes it much easier to transport them!
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup goji berries
2 tbsp wheatgrass (or spirulina)
tbsp bee pollen
10 soft dates
tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp cashew butter (or other nut butter)
tsp vanilla paste (optional)
What to do…
As usual this recipe is super simple and speedy, first you want to place your almonds, hemp seeds and goji berries in a blender and pulse until they look like a fine crumble. then add your wheatgrass, bee pollen and dates and blend again on a high speed until the dates have completely broken down and the mixture is starting to come together. Finally add the remaining ingredients and blend again. The mixture should now be throughly combined and starting to clump together. Use your hands to press some of the mixture, you should see that it stays together. If not add a little more coconut oil or water.
Between your palms, roll a couple of tablespoons of the mix into balls, roughly the size of a golf ball, but the size is totally up to you. On a plate sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of bee pollen, roll each ball in the bee pollen to coat the outside.
Place your balls in the freezer to set. You can then keep a couple in the fridge if you want to be able to eat them straight away.
Enjoy your green balls of energy!
