Want a snack that’s not only healthy, but tasty and full of nutrition? One that will maybe even help you to whittle your waistline?
Introducing…. The protein ball. These bite-size snacks are the perfect way to enjoy something yummy while also packing a whopping nutritional punch. You can use any kind of protein powder for these balls, but I highly recommend giving hemp protein powder a try. Living Harvest and Nutiva are two great brands of unrefined, pure hemp protein. This protein ball has a lot of healthy ingredients. In one serving, you’re getting:
HEMP PROTEIN BALLS (Makes 5 balls)
2 tablespoons hemp protein powder
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
3 tablespoons sunbutter
1 tablespoon coconut oil ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon raw cacao 1 tablespoon honey or stevia (only a few drops needed) shredded coconut
COMBINE THE INGREDIENTS.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Stir until ingredients are combined and mixed well.
MAKE THE PROTEIN BALLS. Once ingredients are mixed well, Roll into 5 even balls. Roll each ball in a bowl of shredded coconut - feel free to dust them with more cacao for an extra boost of antioxidants. Place on a wax paper lined dish and place in freezer for 10 minutes.
