Cashew Coconut Protein Balls


By Clare Keating, All Bodies Nutritionist and ex-chef


A quick and easy protein ball to satisfy a sweet tooth craving and give you a burst of energy! They have a delicious nutty and vanilla taste with a smooth, non-sticky consistency


Protein balls, like these, are also great for athletes needing to eat more calories but are struggling with the volume of food. A couple of these go a long way and can be great for that!


If you're dairy-free you can swap the whey protein for vegan vanilla protein

If you don't have any cashews in the house, feel free to swap them for a different nut, it'll obviously just change the taste and nutrition information a little bit
