Making your own on the go balls are great, pre or post-workout or even to keep in the fridge.
It is suitable for the whole family! Kids over the age of 5 can enjoy the Good Greens powder, for kiddies under the age of 5 however, use the Kids Good Greens range from Nuzest.
Yield: Around 10 -12 balls
FOR THE BIT SIZE BALLS:
200g Large Chewy soft Medjool dates ( then pips removed) don’t use dry dates… it has to be the chewy and moist kind
(OR 4 Good Green Stuff Bars from Nuzest + 4 Large Chewy soft Medjool dates)
2 Tablespoons of Raw Almond Butter Organic
1 Serving of Good Green stuff powder
1 Tablespoon of flaxseed meal
1 Serving of Nuzest Vanilla Protein Clean Lean
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
FOR THE COCONUT DUST:
1 Cup of unsweetened fine desiccated coconut
1 Serving of Nuzest Good Green Stuff
1 Large Ziplock bag.
In a food processor, add all the ingredients for the balls by first breaking the bars into small pieces, chop the bars in the food processor first until fine, once chopped add everything else and blend until you have a dough-like consistency and not too crumbly either, if it is a bit too crumbly then just add a little more almond butter to the mix.
Once done and you’ve reached the dough consistency, you can start rolling your balls. When rolled out, set them aside.
In a ziplock bag, add all the coconut dust ingredients. Take half of the balls you’ve made and add them into the bag, zip the bag up and allow to mix them by shaking the bag around once they balls are completely covered, remove them and take the other half doing the same. The balls will now have a soft snow-like outer layer! Once all the balls are dusted, you can then place your balls in an air-tight jar and store in the fridge.
Personally, I like to keep them in the fridge for an hour before consuming. Mason jars are my ultimate favourite when it comes to keeping foods fresh, especially these superfood balls. Mason jars are key when it comes to locking in the freshness of the foods, plus it is plastic-free. I easily keep my mason jars in the fridge.
For **date version if slightly more wet, sticky, then just add 2 Tablespoons of desiccated unsweetened coconut as the bars have a drier consistency than dates.
As you will probably have some extra coconut dust left over, so if you do you can just keep it in the ziplock bag or pop into another jar and keep in the fridge. I often use the leftover coconut dust for smoothie toppings, yoghurt or even breakfast cereal toppings.
Good Green Stuff is scientifically formulated to be a one-stop multi greens, therefore, it allows the body to receive a larger scope of greens than some green powders, it has a unique vitamin and mineral profile, formulated to have at least 8-10 servings of fruit and veg per serving.
Therefore loaded with antioxidants and alkaline greens your body can only benefit from this antioxidant bite-size ball, this beats the average chocolate bar or refined sugar “protein balls” you often find in some health clubs and stores.
