These Coconut Vanilla Shakeology Balls are one of my absolute favourite Vanilla Shakeology Recipes!
These little protein balls are little sweet but are filling and kill my cravings without fail. The hemp heart and chia seeds inside add the perfect amount of crunch and crackle.
A great snack when you are craving sweets and so easy to bring with you when you are on the road. So good in fact I would bring them to a party as a little dessert! No one would know they are good for you they are so good.
Coconut is the best! It can make almost any recipe feel like a brief visit to the tropics.
I love to bake but having baked goods around the house isn’t always the best for my waist line. Being a food blogger who loves to bake it is not uncommon for me to have a pile of cookies or baked goods lying around especially around the holidays.
To avoid turning into one giant “Cookie Monster” at 3:00 pm when the afternoon rolls around I try and freeze my baked goods. This way they are hard as a rock and I have to wait for them to thaw before. Usually I am too lazy to wait so I put them back in the freezer and walk away…. usually saying “Walk away Alisa… just walk away” to coach myself into not turning back!
So to help curb my the afternoon cravings I always need to have a sweet treat available that doesn’t taste like it is good for me. Even though it is! It has to look just as good.
Power Balls are my go-to. Doesn’t really matter the flavour and I find it fun to experiment by throwing a bunch of ingredients in the bowl and see what happens. Well that is exactly what I did today when I was unprepared and had no healthy snacks left.
Coconut Vanilla Shakeology Power Balls!
These took no more than 5 minutes (no kidding) to make and I even surprised myself at how good these were so I had to share this recipe for sure!
They are made up of nothing but goodness! Coconut, Chia Seesds, Hemp Hearts, Peanut Butter and Protein Powder plus a little sweetness with honey.
These Coconut Vanilla Shakeology balls are perfect for a quick snack and super portable to bring with you when you are on the go. As a professional sales rep by day I always need portable snacks which is why I try and have power balls ready to take with me. Just put in a little container so they don’t get squished out out the door! No need to stop by Starbucks for a treat!
I find one is enough for me as a snack and if you are following the 21 Day Fix Program one one would count as 1/2 Orange Container, 2 tsp and 1/4 Red.
