Bouncing Beauty Balls
Our beauty balls are loaded with the nutrients your body needs to help keep you beautiful. This recipe calls for almonds which are a source of omega-3 and vitamin E, thanks to their good fat content. These balls are high in protein and fibre so they’ll help you keep lean and trim. They’re also rich in magnesium which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. What’s even more fantastic is that these sweet treats contain no processed sugars, when you make them without the chocolate chips. If you do decide to leave the chocolate chips in don’t worry too much, 50g is about the size of an average chocolate bar. Spread out over so many little balls it won’t make too much of a difference.
-145g raw almonds
-1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 scoop Bionic Bodies Lean Curves
-1 TSP vanilla extract or a vanilla pod
-3 TBSP water
-50g chocolate chips (optional)
Method: Chop the dates, removing any pits, and leave to soak in hot water for 20 minutes. In a food processor, whizz the almonds until they’re ground. To this, add the cocoa powder, Bionic Bodies Lean Curves and vanilla. Blitz the mixture for a few seconds. Drain the dates from the hot water. Put them into the food processor along with the water. Whizz until a dough has formed. Add the chocolate chips and give it another mix to disperse the chips. Use a tablespoon to spoon out the mixture and roll it into balls using your hands. A heaped tablespoon should be the serving size per ball. Roll in coconut before placing them on a tray. If you want to really step things up you could toast the coconut in a dry pan (but make sure it’s cold before you roll your balls). Let the balls rest in the fridge for around an hour. Transfer them into an airtight tub to keep them fresh. Enjoy!
