I recently heard a generalised comment "Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Flavour Free!!" Not in my world! I may be biased but the raspberry tanginess in these balls is yummy, with no added sugar, the antioxidant goodness of blueberries, protein and calcium from the tahini and almonds they've got to be good.
I'm often asked "how can I get calcium if I'm not having dairy? There's many ways, enjoying things like these balls is just one way.
Here's what you'll need:
* I’ve used just almonds or a combo of almonds and cashews. Would be good with walnuts, some brazils, or any combo you fancy!
** Be wary of sesame seed allergies if using tahini, you could use more almond butter instead.
*** Can use peanut butter, will give a stronger peanut flavour, cashew butter would also be great.
If cranberries are hard, soak for a short time first. Sometimes I soak them in my favourite blueberry and blackcurrant tea then use some of this liquid to get the balls to the right consistency.
If you happen to add too much liquid, try adding some psyllium husk or chia seeds, these are both great binders and great for you. Psyllium will also help to get you going, great for your colon!
I use USANA Nutri Meal Free protein powder which is formulated without soy, dairy, gluten or fructose.
If you need an extra binder, a small amount of Fibergy Plus from USANA can be another great option instead of psyllium.
Enjoy and have fun experimenting with flavours, additions or substitutions!
