This week's post is a healthy recipe for Green Tea Amazeballs from Andi Lew's Wellness Loading. Her new book is the Ultimate Wellness Detox and has you learning how to turn the tech off and connect with yourself and to become more productive and balanced. Wellness is more than just nutrition and fitness; true wellbeing is about disconnecting from technology and reconnecting with yourself, our earth and your community. Learn what you can do every day so that you aren't so addicted to your device. Get in touch with nature and all things natural! We are hooked on this book and loving all the super delicious and healthy mindful food recipes. We had to share this one with you. It's perfect as the snack on the run and avoiding 3:30ish.
Green Tea Amazeballs
This recipe makes 15 delicious balls.
2 cups quinoa oat flakes (gluten-free option), or rolled oats 1 cup pitted dates, roughly chopped ½ cup of shredded coconut 2 tbsp organic peanut butter ½ cup of sultanas ½ cup of almonds 1 tbsp cocoa powder 2 tbsp honey 3/4 tbsp or more filtered and alkalized water 1 tsp vanilla extract Organic green tea powder for rich anti-oxidants and metabolism booster
Put all ingredients apart from the water into a food processor and blend until it has the consistency of breadcrumbs. Add the water and continue to process until it becomes sticky enough to roll into balls.
Use a tablespoon to measure the mixture and roll into firm balls. Roll into green tea powder to make the outside look pretty and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Note: You'll need to make sure the peanut butter is a good quality, pesticide-free kind. Spiral Foods do a great one. If your guests are anaphylactic and cannot consume peanuts, you may like to use a different type of nut butter or cold-pressed organic coconut oil instead.
