These Turmeric Coconut Fat Balls are inspired by a delicious recipe from Lee Tilghman of @leefromamerica. We added our Golden Root turmeric latte mix to the recipe for some additional sweet, spicy, and anti-inflammatory elements. These fat balls are the most excellent high protein post-workout treat or the perfect grab-and-go during a horrendously busy morning.
There’s no need to be intimidated by the arduous task of cleaning a Vitamix or food processor, because this recipe has so. much. coconut in it that it makes for super slick and minimal cleaning up.
- 1 cup coconut shreds
- 1/2 cup Coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup Nutiva coconut butter
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup pepitas
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 Tbsp or 1 sachet of Golden Root turmeric latte mix
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 medjool dates (pitted)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- protein powder
Add all ingredients to a Vitamix or food processor and blend. Mixture can remain chunky and not fully blended. Mix should be wet.
Take a handful of mix and mold it into a 1-2 inch ball. Mix should make about 10-14 balls, depending on their size. Place on a pan or in a container and set inside freezer for 6 hours.
Let balls sit out for a couple of minutes before eating to achieve a creamy but firm texture.
