1 cup raw walnuts, soaked
10-12 Medjool dates, soaked
Zest of half a lemon
2 tablespoons of vanilla protein powder
2 scoops of Sparkle Collagen with Verisol®
½ teaspoon of vanilla oil
1 cup of coconut flakes
Soak the walnuts and dates in distilled water overnight in separate bowls — this would make it easier to blend in a food processor. Make sure you keep the water from the dates, but you should strain the walnuts. Whizz the coconut flakes in your food processor and set aside.
Blend the dates without the water in the food processor to get a sticky paste. Pop in the rest of the ingredients and add teaspoons of date water gradually every now and again. You don’t want your protein balls to have too much liquid as you want the consistency to be dough-like.
Mold the dough into small balls (you should get 12-15 balls with this recipe) and roll them in coconut flakes. Keep in the freezer for a denser texture.
