Coconut bliss balls - Women's Health and Fitness

 

What you'll need

  • 1 cup pitted or fresh dates
  • ¼ cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 5 pitted prunes
  • 2 scoops natural protein powder
  • 1 chopped protein bar (optional)
  • Shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Lime zest

What you'll do

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add a touch of filtered water and some squeezed lime juice until you get the consistency right. It should be sticky and not too dry, making it easy to roll into a ball. Scoop a tablespoon out at a time, roll into a ball then roll in either sesame seeds or shredded coconut. Place in fridge or freezer and enjoy!

Hot tip: It’s a good idea to soak the nuts and dates overnight to make them easier to blend – or even 15 minutes in hot water.
