Strawberry Soya Protein Balls with Chia Seeds | © 2013 |

These protein dessert balls are made of fresh berries, soya protein, almonds and chia seeds. If you are not keen on consuming soy protein isolate, rice, pea, or whey protein are just as good. I love covering them with chia seeds for the extra delicious crunch and earthy look. Go for the white chocolate coating if you have a sweet tooth.

  • 125 g Strawberries
  • 75 g Blueberries
  • 1 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 125 g Almonds, toasted and ground
  • 2-3 tbsp Soya protein isolate, strawberry flavour
  • 50 g Almond slices, roughly chopped
  • 50 g Chia seeds for coating
  • 200 g White chocolate couverture
  1. Puree the berries and mix with chia seeds, ground almonds, soya protein and roughly chopped almond slices in a bowl.
  2. Shape the mixture into balls. Cover with a plastic film and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. Melt the white chocolate couverture over a pot of hot water. Roll the balls with chia seeds. Or dip with the melted white chocolate. | © 2013 | | © 2013 |

First time I am seeing this kind of dessert, looks interestng and I am curious about the taste.

Barbara 21/4/13 14:38

So interesting a dessert, Angie. I love the way you presented them with whole strawberries, giving a hint as to the ingredients.

mjskit 21/4/13 18:25

I was really surprised to see that you used fresh fruit instead of dried. The fresh fruit definitely makes these bites much more appealing to me. I would assume that they don't keep very long because of it, but I doubt that's much of a problem. :) It certainly wouldn't take us long to eat these!

dentistvschef 21/4/13 20:23

Gosh, i really hope i can access those ingredients.....
btw what is the brand for your soya protein???

Angie Schneider 21/4/13 20:32

@dentistvschef PNC-Europe Soy Isolat from Amazon.

Cass @foodmyfriend 29/4/13 04:10

Whenever I leave the gym, they are advertising a new protein ball and they always look so dry and horrible. These look incredible. I am willing to bet that they would taste amazing as well. Could I freeze them?

Angie Schneider 29/4/13 06:12

@Cass @foodmyfriend Thanks, Cass. I haven't tried freezing them, but it shouldn't be a problem to store them in the freezer before applying the coating.

Kitcheninspirations 30/4/13 19:21

Super healthy and then there is the lovely white chocolate coating giving you just a pinch of sinfulness.

Mary Moh 1/5/13 09:38

A very healthy truffle :D I can eat them without guilt.....hehe

Choclette 3/5/13 12:22

No idea what soya protein is, but these look wonderful. With my sweet tooth, I like the idea of white chocolate, but I'm particularly taken with your chia coating - lovely.

Kelly Mulcair Registered Nutritionist. Content © 2011 Trinity Nutrition. 6/5/13 03:05

How pretty are these Angie...what a wonderful creation and a healthy bite to boot too! Love this idea.
