Fruity & zesty energy balls

If you have a food processor energy balls are so quick and easy to make at home. You can store them in the freezer so they're super convenient too. And of course way healthier than the stash of sweets that you're trying to stay away from!

I'm a bit of a chocoholic, so naturally a lot of my energy balls have ended up being cacao based. But there are loads of great recipes for fruity based energy bites too. So today i'm going to share some non cacao based recipes in case you're after something fruity or zesty. Check out our raspberry & coconut or lemon & cashew recipes below. 

If you don't want to make them yourself you can buy all of our energy bites online now including cranberry & orange or carrot cake if you want something a little less chocolatey. 

Try as you will the cacao ones will still be my favs though ;-)

 

Raspberry & coconut energy balls 

Raspberry energy ball

Ingredients: 
(makes 10-12 balls)

70g cashews
125g desiccated coconut (hold back 25g for rolling)
50g frozen raspberries
3 tbsp maple syrup

Method:

  1. Blitz the cashews until you achieve a coarse but even mill. 
  2. Add the coconut, raspberries & maple syrup. 
  3. Blitz for another 30 secs. 
  4. Roll into balls.
  5. Roll in coconut to cover outside.
  6. Freeze for 2 hrs, serve from chilled or frozen. They will be a soft from chilled or a firmed bite from frozen, equally delicious, just personal preference. 

 

Zesty lemon & cashew energy balls

Lemon cashew energy balls

Ingredients:
(makes 10-12 balls)

2 cups cashews
10 medjool dates
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
zest of  2x lemons
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp chia seeds
*Something to roll them in (optional)

Method:

  1. Blitz the cashews until you achieve a coarse but even mill. 
  2. Pit the dates and chop into the food processor.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Blitz until it is well combined and starts to come together into a big ball.
  5. Roll into balls.
  6. They look much prettier if you then roll them in something, but if you're in hurry and it's substance over style them just whack them in the freezer for a couple hours and then serve from chilled. If you're all about the presentation though and want to instagram these bad boys then you've got a few options: - blitz up some freeze dried raspberries and roll in this (tastes great too)
    - blitz up some pumpkin seeds and roll in this (less taste, but lovely colour combo and added protein)
    - keep it simple and roll in some desiccated coconut.

Share some photos of your creations!

Happy blending!
