integrating nutrition, fitness, sprituality, conscious living, and a little sass
These truffles are one of our favorite power snacks, but they do take a bit of prep work, so we like to make a fairly large batch so that we can keep them in the freezer or refrigerator. They are healthy enough to be a quick snack, but delicious enough to be delightful dessert, so they are sure to please!
The main ingredients are coconut and hemp protein powder, which have tremendous health benefits.
Coconut was once seen as a villain due to its saturated fat content, but luckily it has now come out of this shadow and become known as the true superfood that it is. There are books written on the benefits of coconut oil for weight loss, brain health, skin health, and much more!
Hemp protein is another superfood because it is made from hemp seeds which are not only rich in vitamins and minerals, they also contain a balanced ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids. We like to use protein powders in our ‘desserts’ so that we are providing protein to stabilize our blood sugar when consuming sweets!
