Frozen Chocolate Protein Bites

I make a lot of different protein balls (you can find some recipes here), but these guys are perfect for the warm weather that is finally making its way in!

They’re frozen treats that’ll keep you cool, but each one has almost 5 grams of super high quality plant protein, too! It’s a win-win :)

5-Minute Vegan Caramel Dip

I most definitely do not follow a vegan diet (but if that’s what works for you, more power to ya!). I do, however, absolutely LOVE recipes that are quick, easy, healthy, and use a simple list of simple ingredients. Cue this dip! It works for both kinds of people :)

When I asked my mom to try it, she said, and I quote, “You could literally jar this.” I promise you… it really is THAT good!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 small pitted dates

  • 3 TB raw cashews

  • 2 TB almond butter

  • cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt, to taste

Blend everything together in a high speed blender and DEVOUR! You can cover and store this in the fridge for up to a week as well, just be aware that it firms up pretty good so you may want to let it sit out for a few minutes when you go back to eat it.


serve it up with…

  • apples

  • bananas

  • pears

  • grapes

  • pretzels

  • drizzle on popcorn

  • cinnamon sugar pita chips

  • ice cream

  • nuts

  • drizzle on pancakes or waffles

  • cheesecake

  • brownies

  • yogurt

  • pictured here is a pumpkin KBosh Foods pizza crust baked into ‘crackers’

And the list goes on!

Comment if you have any other dipping ideas :)

Strawberry Bliss Balls

Protein, energy, and fat balls are some of my favorite snacks to have prepped in the fridge. I’ve made so many different flavors and varieties, and the options are nearly endless! These “Strawberry Bliss Balls” are perfect when you need a sweet bite in the afternoon to hold you over.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup mixed raw almonds/cashews

  • 2 pitted dates

  • 2 TB coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried strawberries

  • 3 TB mixed hemp/flax seed

  • 2 TB coconut flakes + more for rolling

  • 1/4 cup nut butter

  • dash of vanilla extract

Pulse everything in a food processor until well combined. Roll into balls, roll in coconut flakes, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!

**TIP: I like to make the balls different sizes, in case I’m more hungry at certain times than others.
