One thing I am keenly working on is eating the right thing at the right time to always feel tip top. This can be difficult with a haphazard schedule and one thing I miss more than anything when I’m trying to only eat things that nourish the mind, body and soul is chocolate! I developed this little concoction as my chocolate fix and pick me up. It’s a great post workout recipe as it’s high in carbohydrates and protein and low in fats so it will quickly replenish your muscles leaving you fighting fit for your next session.
- 100g Dates
- 50g Peanut butter
- 50g Desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp Raw hemp seed protein (optional)
- 1 heaped tbsp Raw Cacao
- Pinch of Salt
- A few table spoons of filtered water
Pop everything in the food processor until throughly mushed together, only add a table spoon of water at a time if you need it. Gauge by the consistency, it needs to be sticky enough to make balls not sloppy! Once your mixture is well combined roll out your balls, I usually get around 15 but just depends on how big you like them.
Place them in the fridge and pack them for a quick fix for when you need them most – I scoff them between classes and on the way home for the gym.
I love to hear how my recipes tickle your fancy, leave a note below to tell me what you think.
