Raspberry, Cacao and Coconut Protein Balls

Raspberry, coconut and chocolate are such a delicious combination of flavours. So here's a deliciously easy recipe for you all to try this week.

These are lifesavers for anyone who has a tendency to gravitate toward the fridge before they even know what they're doing. 

It’s the perfect snack to make a big batch of and leave them in your fridge to grab whenever you need (or when the mood strikes)! The medjool dates gives a delicious depth of flavour and natural sweetness that you don’t need any added sugar for these.

7 ingredients, 1 food processor and about 5 minutes is all you need for these beauties. 

The added protein helps aid muscle recovery and makes it perfect for a post workout snack with natural sugars to replenish energy. However, don’t feel as thought you need to add it, you can substitute the protein powder for additional almonds.
