Hi everyone! Are you ready for the weekend? I’m super excited to spend end of the April and end of the week with my BFF’s. Before I go, I would like to share some delicious recipe with you!Β 

I decided to make these Lemon Turmeric energy balls because I like some quick energy snacks. These balls are very nutritious and healthy so it will satisfy your hunger and cravings for sweets, without unnecessary calories.

I’m totally obsessed with Turmeric. It is one of the most powerful natural remedies in the world. I’m using it in the stew, soups, tea, smoothies… The reason why I’m so obsessed with turmeric is because of the pervading cold and flu. I believe we can prevent many diseases just by eating right and healthy food, and why not to giving natural remedies a chance to protect us.

These Lemon Turmeric energy balls are packed with healthy, high-quality dietary fibers, healthy fats and plant based proteins. Also, they are vegan, refined sugar free and gluten free. Just perfect! And now I’ll leave you to enjoy in these mini zesty lemon bomblets. πŸ™‚Β 

Ingredients:

  • 12 Medjool dates (soaked in water)
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 shredded coconut for dusting

Direction:

Remove the pits from dates and soak them in hot water for several minutes. When the dates are softened, drain them Β and place in food processor. Save the water. Add the other ingredients to a food processor and blend until mixture turns into a dough- like consistency. Add 1 tablespoon of water in which you have soaked the date if the mixture is too dry. With the small spoon scoop the mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls in shredded coconut. Store energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving.
