Following on from my ‘what I wear to the gym’ post, I thought I’d post a healthy snack idea! I have a whole Pinterest board full of food-spiration for eating clean, but this concoction is my new snack obsession! These choco-coco bites are super easy and quick to make!
Ingredients you will need (makes 8 bites):
100g of pitted dates
25g of yogi berries
2 heaped teaspoons of cocoa powder
3 heaped teaspoons of desiccated coconut
You will need a food processor for this recipe.
I picked up this cute little one in Tescos. Apparently its a ‘Delia Cheat’, and in Delia we trust.
Next step, chuck all your ingredients in the processor in no particular order (although I like to pop the dates in first so they are right by the blade but I don’t think it matters).
Pop the lid on (crucial step) and blend away merrily!
It should look something like this aprés blending.
Start scooping out small amounts and this is where it gets a bit messy.
You will either find this fun, or gross, but its unavoidable. Start rolling the mixture between your hands to form a well defined little ball bite.
Place each bite on a plate or in a tupperware dish, and then pop them in the fridge for at least 2hrs.
After that I gave mine a dusting of icing sugar snow (but you can also cover them in coconut or chocolate powder), et voila!
A super healthy tasty snack that you can have handy for when those slightly naughtier sugar cravings hit. And so easy and quick to make! Win!
