Coconut Vanilla Shakeology Balls

I love to bake but having baked goods around the house isn’t always the best for my waist line.  I try and freeze my bake goods so when the 3:00 pm munchies roll around I am not tempted to go for the kids treats I have in the house.

So to help curb my the afternoon cravings I always need to have a sweet treat available that doesn’t taste like it is good for me.  Even though it is!  It has to look just as good.

Power Balls are my go-to.  Doesn’t really matter the flavour and I find it fun to experiment by throwing a bunch of ingredients in the bowl and see what happens.  Well that is exactly what I did today when I was unprepared and had no healthy snacks left.

Ta Da!

Coconut Vanilla Shakeology Power Balls!

Vanilla Coconut Shakeology Balls

These took no more than 5 minutes (no kidding) to make and I even surprised myself at how good these were so I had to share this recipe for sure!

They are made up of nothing but goodness!  Coconut, Chia Seesds, Hemp Hearts, Peanut Butter and Protein Powder plus a little sweetness with honey.

These Coconut Vanilla Shakeology balls are perfect for a quick snack and super portable to bring with you when you are on the go.  As a professional sales rep by day I always need portable snacks which is why I try and have power balls ready to take with me.  Just put in a little container so they don’t get squished out out the door!  No need to stop by Starbucks for a treat!

I find one is enough for me as a snack and if you are following the 21 Day Fix Program one one would count as 1 Orange Container, 2 tsp and 1/4 Red.
