These tangy bliss balls have just enough sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings. They are refined sugar free and have a higher protein content thanks to the additional whey protein powder making them an ideal little healthy snack.
- 100g shredded coconut + some extra for rolling
- 50g grounded almonds
- 4tbsp natural honey
- 2tbsp vanilla whey protein powder (heaped)
- 2tbsp organic raw cold pressed coconut oil (flat)
- 1tsp vanilla essence
- 1 lemon; zest + juice
Wash and dry your lemon, then zest and juice it removing any pips 😉
In a food processor place all the ingredients and blend until well combined… if needed use a silicone spatula to scrape the sides.
Roll into small balls – you should have enough mixture to create 24 double bite sized bliss balls – then roll in some extra shredded coconut to give them a nice finished look.
Place on a plate, cover with foil and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Keep refrigerated and enjoy as required 🙂
If you aren’t a big fan of lemons, why not try them with oranges instead… I didn’t try it yet but I bet they will be delicious too… just don’t add the entire juice or your mixture might be too loose and it will not “glue” as intended.
Since I started my journey with Thinking Slimmer and slimpod I have lost all my chocolate cravings but I still get the urge to have something sweet from time to time. Despite having some sort of chocolate products in the house they aren’t appealing to me any more… frankly I would rather be standing in the kitchen for half an hour creating a new batch of bliss balls than have a piece of chocolate. It’s funny how people can change, hey? A few month ago, I couldn’t be bothered with making “healthy” snacks; when I wanted something sweet, I wanted it now and this instance… now… I am more than happy to wait until something yummy and tasty and healthy is ready…
How about you?
What do you do when the need for sweet strikes you?
