How To Make Raspberry Coconut Energy Balls..


Happy Sunday, today I have a nice and easy healthy treat idea to share with you.

Fancy trying out these raspberry coconut energy balls?

These delicious energy balls are a perfect pre-workout snack or a post 3pm pick me up.


How To Make Raspberry Coconut Energy Balls:

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: none

Makes 20 energy balls

You will need:
  • 100g coconut flakes 
  • 50g unblanched almonds 
  • 10 medjool dates, pitted 
  • 225g Dole® frozen raspberries 
  • 3 heaped tablespoons almond butter 
  • 40g desiccated coconut 
  • 2 tbsp freeze dried raspberries 

How To Make Raspberry Coconut Energy Balls:
  1. Place the coconut flakes and almonds in a food processor and blitz until chopped. Add the dates and blitz until these are chopped too.
  2.  Add the frozen raspberries and almond butter and then pulse until the mixture is finely chopped and sticking together. 
  3. Divide the mixture into 20 then roll the mixture between wet hands to make balls. 
  4. Mix the desiccated coconut and raspberry together in a shallow bowl and roll each ball in the mixture until coated. 
  5. Place the balls in a plastic container lined with baking parchment and leave to firm up in the fridge for an hour before eating. 
  6. Once made, store in the fridge for up to 1 week. 

These homemade energy balls made with Dole® frozen raspberries are a cost-effective alternative to pre-packed energy bars and snacks found in many health food shops.

Dole® frozen raspberries come in resealable packs and are an easy and quick way to get more fruit into your diet with no washing or cutting required and no mess.

Because they are picked at peak ripeness and freshly frozen within hours the fruit is always in season and available all year round.
