Key Lime Protein Balls

These are to DIE FOR!!  Will definitely make them again! 


Ingredients:
  • 2 Cups of Cashews
  • 1 Cup of Pitted Dates
  • 3 Scoops of Protein Powder ( I used Whey Gourmet Vanilla Ice Cream)
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • ¼ Cup Ground Flax
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Zest of 1 Lime
  • ¼ Cup Water
Directions:
  1. Add your two cups of cashews to your food processor and blend until it is flour.
  2. Add your 3 scoops protein powder and pulse until blended.
  3. Add your unsweetened coconut and ground flax and pulse until blended.
  4. Add the vanilla extract, lime juice, lime zest, dates, and water. Blend until dough texture.
  5. Remove the dough from the food processor and place in a bowl. Begin rolling protein balls into 1 inch balls.
  6. Roll protein balls in coconut until completely covered (I prefer to toast the coconut)
  7. Place balls on a plate or in a container, cover and place in the fridge.
My recipe made 28 balls.
