CACAO & ORANGE ENERGY BALLS
So many words could describe this delicious creation containing only 4 ingredients... I don't even know where to start. I'll just shoot you the first ones that come to my mind when bitting into those pure goodness balls.
5 words that describe super well those Cacao&Orange energy balls.
However, I could have gone with a lot more describing terms like Healthy, Superfoods packed, Vegan, Paleo, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Easy to make, Refined sugar-free, and so much more!
The cacao powder adds a rich chocolatey taste as well as providing tons of antioxidants and vitamins. Plus it's the perfect taste when mixed with the fresh orange juice and zest.
You can wipe up this recipe easily, it doesn't take long at all to do, and it is made with 4 common ingredients.
Those balls are the perfect snack on the go, not too big, not too small! You can choose to take 1 as a part of your snack, 2 to make a little dessert, or more if you want something a bit more consistent and filling.
Ingredients for 12-15 balls (Depending on the size you want it)
1 cup Cashew
3/4 cup of Fresh Medjool Dates
2 Tbsp. Raw Nutritional 100% Pure Cacao Powder
2 Tbsp. Orange Juice + Zest of the Orange
1. If your dates are not fresh, or a bit dry, let them soak into boiling water for a bit, to make them softer, and juicier.
2. To a food processor, add the cashews, the date (drained), the zest of all the orange, and the orange juice.
3. Blend for 20-30 seconds, until you get a sticky texture.
4. Roll the dough into balls, and store them in the fridge.
Note: You still want some cashew not perfectly blends, to add a bit of texture to your balls.
* They will last for about 5-7days in a hermetic container in the fridge.

You will wonder why you didn't mix superfoods and Strawberry Crisp dessert together before! Açaï and Goji don't taste at all in this recipe. The fruity taste mixed with the baked golden crumble will warm your heart to your soul. Adding superfoods through recipes is a good way to get a nutrient-packed dessert, as well as a fantastic taste.
A sweet coffee flavor, a silky texture, a filling portion and of course, a nutrient-dense recipe; This is what we are up to. Nobody would have thought that adding protein powder to a simple vegan cheesecake recipe would be a game changer. BUT IT IS!
It adds protein, a thickness yet smoothness to the "cheese part" and lots of nutrients when done with the Vegan Pro.
