coconut blueberry balls from Vashte

These are delicious! Easy to create and very easy to eat! Perfect for after a workout; a great way to get kids to eat clean healthy nutritious snacks; or a morning snack! Packed with nutrients and energy with no added sugar but deliciously sweet. High in protein. Your body will love you for them, and so will your palate!

Enjoy xx

What you need:

  • 3/4 Cup L.S.A
  • 3/4 Cup coconut flakes
  • 1 Cup of dried berries- I like blueberries- you can you any fruit you like!
  • Dash of Cinnamon
  • Sweeten with rice bran syrup – available from the supermarket in the health section.
  • Filtered water
  • More L.S.A to cover your balls in.

How to Make It Work:

  • In a bowl combine all dry ingredients, and mix well.
  • I use water to bind my mixture, so pour small amounts in turning it into a sticky mess. Here is where you add sweetener if you like a sweeter taste.

(Some people use tahini to as the binding agent as opposed to water. I choose not to use tahini for two reasons – 1. I find the taste overpowers the ingredients. 2. I don’t digest tahini well, nor do I like the flavour!)

So there are a couple of options for you as a binding agent.

  • Ensure the mixture is sticky and wet. If you add too much water just pop more dry ingredients in to make it workable. You want to be able to form solid balls with your hands.
  • Roll in L.S.A. to complete then leave to set in the fridge for 5 hours.
  • They will keep for up to two weeks- but not likely as they will be eaten in that time frame!
