Lemon and Coconut Protein Balls
We love a good chocolate-y protein ball here at Neat, but sometimes even us chocoholics need a sweet snack with a little more zing! These lemon and coconut protein balls are super refreshing and are amazing for throwing in your bag for a healthy snack on the go.
First, place the almonds and the protein powder in a food processor and blend until the nuts are broken down almost to a powder, with no large pieces of nuts left.
Add in your pitted dates, lemon juice and coconut and blend again until well combined. Roll the dough together to make bitesized balls and roll them in desiccated coconut to finish!
