Protein Truffles

These protein balls are great for snacking on and for eating after training. They are absolutely delicious and look spectacular – even my kids love them! I make a batch on Sunday for the week ahead. Makes 25 truffles

For the truffles:

  • 150g almonds

  • 150g cashew nuts

  • 100g pumpkin seeds

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp chocolate protein or hemp protein powder

  • 1 tbsp maca powder

  • 1 tbsp raw cacao nibs

  • 2 tsp spirulina powder

  • 18 Medjool dates, pitted

  • a squeeze of orange or lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

  • a handful of goji berries, chopped

  • 1 tbsp grated coconut

Put all the ingredients for the truffles into a blender and pulse until it forms a thick, smooth consistency. Then roll the mixture into small balls. To finish, roll the balls in the cacao powder, hemp seeds, goji berries or grated coconut. Sometimes I mix the toppings together and cover the truffles in all of them.

Juiceman tip - For a bit of variation in flavour, try adding lemon zest and a pinch of vanilla powder to the truffle mixture, or some orange zest and finely chopped chilli.
