Immune Boosting Energy Ball Recipe

Posted 10 months ago on

These immune boosting, refined sugar-free energy balls created by Dr. Shah use ingredients to help support our immune system during cold and flu season. Coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and contains MCT oil. Ashwagandha supports your adrenals, immune system, and thyroid health and goji berries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. I think you will agree they are perfect for everyday snacking.

 


Ingredients:
15-18 dates, pitted
1/3 cup almonds
1/4 cup melted and cooled coconut oil
2 tbsp chia seeds
1.5 tbsp Organic Traditions Ashwagandha powder
¼ cup goji berries
1 tsp unpasteurized cinnamon-honey (regular, unpasteurized honey is okay and you can add more honey if you find it too bitter from the ashwagandha powder)
Unsweetened, shredded coconut

Makes 12 balls

Method:

  1. Add dates, almonds, coconut oil to a chopper and blend until almonds are chopped.
  2. Add the chia seeds, ashwagandha powder, goji berries and honey and pulse until mixture becomes minced in appearance and sticky.
  3. Form into balls and coat with the shredded coconut. The mixture may be a bit oily to work with due to the coconut oil. If you would like, you can refrigerate the mixture for a couple minutes to make it firmer to work with.
  4. Store balls in the refrigerator or in a cool place to avoid the balls from becoming very soft due to the coconut oil.

Enjoy!
