A friend kindly pointed out a need to take care and energies myself… what better excuse to make energy balls!

Last Christmas I met this lovely New Zelander and she gave me this amazing recipe to boost our energise (obviously I have lost her previous handwritten recipe.. so this is the best I can remember)! I love them 🙂 And they are made with the most obscure, but powerful, ingredients I have ever heard of.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp spirulina powder
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • 2 tbsp ground almonds
  • 12 dates (mehjoli), steamed and then blended

Directions

  1. Steam the dates for 10mins to soften them up. Mix them with honey and coconut oil and blend them.
  2. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Form little one bite truffle balls (it is a very sticky job)
  4. Roll them in different finishes (coconut, almonds, walnuts or crazy colored cake decorating things) and gently push the decoration in.
  5. Eat.
  6. You can store them in an air-tight container for up 10 days.

A quick recipe for an emergency sweet need

image

From time to time we try to have a “cake and sweets free home”. During these pathetic attempts I use all my resources to improvise a dessert.

I had some dark chocolate hiding in the fridge. I melted two squares and added them in between the cream cheese and the strawberries. What a delightful surprise.

Ingredients

  • 1 dry biscuit (ie. digestives, ginger snaps, oat biscuits, etc)
  • 1 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1 splash of orange juice

Directions

  1. Crush the biscuut and place it in a little bowl or glass pot.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the cream cheese and milk until soft. Spread it on top of the crushed biscuit.
  3. At this point you could add a splash of surprise hidden melted chocolate.
  4. Mix together the strawberries and the orange juice and place on top of the cream cheese.
  5. Eat.
