Today I’m going to be showing you how to make energy balls. Energy balls are great for a mid-afternoon snack or pre-workout to give you a much-needed boost of energy.
It’s usually around mid-afternoon that we start feeling like we need a little pick-me-up to get us through the rest of the day. A lot of snacks sold in stores are filled with sugar which isn’t healthy at all. The last thing you want is to fill yourself up with unhealthy ingredients which will cause your body to crash afterwards.
Another disadvantage of store-bought snacks is the amount of sugar and caffeine they include which can eventually lead to chronic stress and several illnesses. That being said, the next time you crave a mid-afternoon snack, consider energy balls which are a much healthier choice.
Made with natural healthy ingredients, they give you all the essential vitamins you need to energize you.
There’s a lot of great benefits to energy balls, one of the main being that they require minimal ingredients making it super easy to do with ingredients you most likely already have at home. Vegan-friendly, gluten free and no baking required, they are the perfect snack to carry when you’re on the go.
Making energy balls are actually really easy and require no baking. The most important thing to consider when making energy balls is to have a good food processor. A lot of the ingredients that go into making energy balls require lots of blending so you want to make sure your food processor is up to par.
Walnuts are a great ingredient to use in energy balls due to their nutritional value. They are high in energy and reduce inflammation, control weight loss and rich in antioxidant. Cashews are also a good ingredient to incorporate in energy balls because they’re known for reducing blood pressure and are rich in vitamins.
Other ingredients you can include when making energy balls are raisins, dates, coconut shred and vanilla extract. All these ingredients are rich in vitamins and proteins which is what you usually want to include when making energy balls.
Once you’ve processed all the ingredients in the food processor, you can roll them into little balls. These make a great breakfast or mid-afternoon snack. Natural ingredients with no added sugar make it a healthy snack option.
