Recipe: Coconut Matcha Energy Balls

Recipe: Coconut Matcha Energy Balls

A couple of days ago, I received the matcha collagen from Vital Proteins. At first, I didn't really know what to do with it. I've never been a huge fan of matcha. I've never understood why people would waste their dollars on a Starbucks matcha latte. So I really had to think hard about how I would use this product. After brainstorming for some days, I came up with the idea of using it to make energy balls. 

So was it a good idea? It wasn't just a good idea. It was a genius idea. Here's the recipe lovelies:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of pitted dates
  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 2 TBS of Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen
  • 3 TBS of shredded coconut
  • A splash of unsweetened almond milk

Preparation:

  • Soak your dates in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain.
  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender. Let it stand for 10 minutes.
  • Form little balls
  • Optional: roll them in more shredded coconut
  • Leave it to set overnight in the fridge.

Bon appétit!
