Protein Power Balls

Foodies,

What would be the perfect snack on the go for you? No need to ask for me cause protein power balls is all I need! So easy and fast to make. One batch for one month, just store them in a container in the freedge (up to 2 weeks) and even for a few months in the freezer.
All those super foods will fule your body with the energy you need to keep going the entire day. They are just perfect after an intense session of hot yoga to refule!

I prefer my power balls with a crunch to it so I don’t blend all the ingredients too fine. What I do is that I mix every dry ingredient separately in a mixer to play with the textures and then I blend all the ingredients together (if that makes any sence).

The advantage of power balls is that you can make them as you wish… just freestyle and combine different tastes. It’s so easy to take in a box on the go (in your car, bag, …).

Ingredients:

  •  250 gr medjoul dates (mixed into a puree, all you need is dates and a little bit of water)
  • 50 ml coconut milk
  • 85 gr tahini
  • 85 gr pumpkin seeds
  • 85 gr flax seeds
  • 85 gr granola
  • 115 gr chia seeds
  • 115 gr sesame seeds (preferably roasted)
  • 115 ground coconut
  • 115 gr pea protein powder

Recipe:

Blend all the ingredients together until you get a mixture as shown below.

The mixture shouldn’t be too dry nor too sticky.

Now it’s time to have some fun and roll some balls. It’s so much fun to do this with kids. The more hands, the more fun.
To add some texture and taste, roll them in ground coconut (my fave), cocoa powder, wheatgrass powder, matcha powder, ground pistachios, ….

This could be such a great gift as well. You just fill a jar with the protein power balls, dress it up with a beautiful bow and voilà, you have a beautiful looking present for your food lovers 😉

Give it a try and share your experiences with us foodies!

Blessings,

5 minutes sorbet

Hello Foodies,

Lazy Sundays ask for ditto recipe’s. This recipe is for those moments when you feel like having a sweet dessert but at the same time feeling lazy to come out of that comfy sofa of yours. That’s how I found out this sorbet recipe.

Besides of red fruits to be attractive, red fruits are loaded with super healthy antioxidants, which soak up damaging free radicals in your body.
So just take your blender out and let’s get started to spoil that temple of yours, which is your body!

For this recipe (for 2) you will need:

– about 1 glass of a mix of frozen wild fruit (I took a mix of red currant, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrant, blueberries)
– 1/2 red apple
– 1 tablespoon of honey
– 4 to 6 tablespoons of orange juice
– ginger
– basil
– mint

Recipe:

1) Peel the ginger and slice the apple into big chunks. Add the leaves of mint and basil, apple, ginger, wild fruit, honey and orange juice into your blender.

2) Mix for about 5 minutes or until you see there are no more chunks in the sorbet.

3) Ready to serve and enjoy. No need to freeze it first for a few hours or so.

You can really use any kind of frozen fruit to make this sorbet. It can be savored just like that by itself or you can use it as part of your dessert. I tend to serve it with watermelon and plain nonfat yogurt to add that special touch.

Here are 2 of my serving ideas but possibilities are just endless.

Have a blessed Sunday Foodies!!!
