Energising Daily Greens Bliss Balls
I live with a cyclist who trains hard and is on a constant mission to find snacks that deliver lots of energy. The alternative is often handful after handful of nuts which are both highly moorish and not so sustaining for him. I'm hoping these Daily Greens Bliss Balls will serve a purpose both on a ride and for daily snacks.
They are certainly both high energy and nutrition - full of gut and skin loving collagen, maca powder, good fats, fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals - quite the powerful little super ball!
The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of my Daily Greens Blend which is flavoured with lemon and lime, so the result is quite a refreshing, tangy flavour.
Makes 18 balls.
1 cup shredded coconut
2 heaped cups medjool dates (I used 18 to be precise!)
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons unflavoured collagen
2 heaped tablespoons Daily Greens
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 pinch sea salt
Put all the ingredients into a high power blender and blend until sticky. The dry ingredients will be very drying (especially the coconut flour) so this may take longer than usual. Add more dates and/or coconut oil if it doesn't easily come together in a ball. Roll into balls and if you choose, into desiccated coconut.
Store in the fridge for a week, or the freezer for a couple of months.
