Golden Root Turmeric Coconut Fat Balls

GR Turmeric Coconut Fat Balls

 

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.

Golden Root Turmeric Coconut Fat Balls


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.
