MOCHA PROTEIN BOOSTER BALLS

February 14, 2019

Work days and coffee are a match made in heaven, so I’ve concocted these delicious sugar free protein balls with a mocha twist! Raw cacao is a natural energy booster that also contains a gentle boost of caffeine, and of course is great when you feel like a choccy hit! These balls are perfect to keep in the fridge or freeze for a mid-morning mental clarity boost, or a yummy treat with your latte. Most snacks are filled with sugar which means they actually do the opposite of what they’re meant to! They send your blood sugar spiking and crashing which makes you feel tired, drowzy and unproductive. These Mocha Protein Booster Balls are sweetened with Nuvia making them totally sugar free and packed with satiating healthy fats and protein from the almond butter and protein powder!
