Good Evening and Happy Saturday!
My oh my, what a gorgeous day it was in Portland today. I hope you got outside and enjoyed a little sunshine.
Now many of us are getting ready to dive into The Bliss Method Detox this week and we are getting prepped and prepared and that means making sure you have the perfect snack to keep you on track when you are ready for a snack attack.
Do you 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, otherwise known as the BLISS 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.
THE BLISS BALL RECIPE
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)
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.
The BLISS Ball has a lot of healthy ingredients. In one serving, you’re getting:
- Antioxidants from raw cacao
- Omega-3s from flax seeds
- Magnesium for muscle relaxation from sunflower seeds
- Anti-parasitic and anti-viral properties of shredded coconut
- Metabolic boost from coconut oil
Try whipping up this tasty treat to satisfy your taste buds AND provide a whopping nutritive punch!
In Health and Happiness,
