Not only are these Rainbow Superfood Energy Balls vegan, gluten-free, and paleo, but they also are low-sugar and full of plant-based protein and healthy fats. They are also fantastic for when you need a little pick me up/energy boost during the day, in between meals, or for a guilt-free healthy treat.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat coconut unsweetened fine shredded (plus a little extra for rolling)
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup dried figs
  • 1/4 cup deglet noor dates
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/2 tbs hemp seeds
  • Ashwaghanda
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Lemon zest
  • Vanilla extract
  • Freeze-dried strawberries
  • Turmeric powder
  • Matcha green tea powder
  • Blue Majik powder/capsules
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, blend the almonds and walnuts together. Pulse a few times in the very beginning.
  2. Add the dried fruit and coconut. Blitz again.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients. Blitz for about 10 seconds.
  4. On a parchment-paper lined baking tray, roll ball mixture into golf/ping-pong sized balls.
  5. Roll the energy balls in the bowls of rainbow superfood powders... Red = crushed freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries; Yellow = turmeric; Green = matcha powder; Blue = Blue Majik
  6. Place the tray with the energy balls in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  7. The energy balls can be enjoyed immediately or stored in the fridge for a couple weeks (but they probably won't last long in there anyways).
