Strawberry Soya Protein Balls with Chia Seeds

Friday, April 19, 2013 | © 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.

  • 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 |
