The only prep I did yesterday was these and also another variety (even better than the last one) of chia pudding.
It's been hot here in Auckland today, and I did the 12:15 class at F45 One Tree Hill, then grabbed some more organic produce from Huckleberry at Royal Oak.
Plus our new vege garden arrived today! We decided on a vegepod, which we got online, you can have a peek here.
We opted for the large size, with a stand...however, because the garden will end up weighing around 400kgs, we need to level some grass and pave it so the garden doesn't sink into the ground! So a work in progress that I'll keep you posted on...
So these balls...ummmm...amazing.
I'm still blown away by the lack of need for dates or maple, or any sweetener actually. What have I been doing all these years feeding the old sugar addiction?!
I used orange zest (organic) but you could also use organic orange essential oil, or orange essence. And also the cordyceps are highly recommended if you are active, they are incredible for recovery.
Hope you've all had a gorgeous Monday, catch you tomorrow! x
Recipe - makes 6
2 TBS plant protein powder, I used vanilla go good
1/2 TBS hemp seeds
2 tsp cordyceps (this is a mushroom powder - doesn't taste of mushroom - and I use Misty Day Plant Potions
A pinch of salt - this helps bring out the chocolate flavour
2 tsp cacao powder, I use Ceres Organics
4 TBS desiccated coconut
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 TBS almond butter
Zest of 1 organic orange, finely chopped
30mls spring or filtered water
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and get stuck in! Massage and knead until all the ingredients come together and form a nice dough.
Roll into 6 equal sized balls, with a dusting of a little extra coconut and place in the fridge until you're ready for your snack!
