Shopping List
    Energy Ball
  • 2 cups dried berries of choice (not freeze-dried)
  • 1 3/4 cups sunflower seeds and/or almonds
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 5 tablespoons berry-flavored protein powder (Note 1)
  • 2 teaspoons goji berry powder or camu powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice Rolling (Optional)
  • 1 (12 ounce) pack freeze-dried strawberries

Instructions
  1. Step 1: If the dates seem dry, soak them in warm water for 30 to 90 minutes until softened.
  2. Step 2: Combine all ingredients, except the optional freeze-dried berries, in a food processor. Blend until the mixture balls up and the large seed pieces are broken down, about 3 to 5 minutes. Rest the processor and scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Step 3: Use your hands to roll the dough into ping-pong sized balls.
  4. Step 4 (Optional): For the optional coating, crush the freeze-dried strawberries into a powder in the food processor. Transfer the berry powder to a dish. Roll the balls in the berry powder to coat.
  5. Serve: Enjoy chilled, or directly from frozen for that extra chewy bite.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Vega Berry Protein tastes great in these. It can also be substituted with any of your favorite non-berry flavored protein powders or an equivalent amount of additional nuts or seeds.
