To me, energy balls are always such a treat. Freshly rolled by shops, a lot of the time they can be priced very highly, but they taste so damn good!
When I heard about Energy Ball Recipe Kit‘s, I was intrigued. Convinced I wouldn’t be able to replicate the amazing energy balls I’d had in the past, this blog post details my quest to attempt to get rolling, and get rolling well!
Now, I need to have a moment to unleash my inner old lady. Back in the day, I don’t even remember energy balls being a thing. We just had porridge or fruit on its own. Now, fruit, spices and oats can be combined and it tastes exciting! Energy balls come in all shapes and sizes, even crazy colours.
The lovely Victoria behind this concept kindly sent me one of the kits to try – Pink Cashew & Maca. When I saw Beetroot Powder within the ingredients, I thought this was questionable and I was slightly nervous. I thought the kit would have been sweet flavoured, so I was very interested to see what this combo would taste like.
My Energy Ball Recipe Kit arrived in a lovely branded box, with each ingredient weighed out perfectly and ready to go. Each box makes 30 decently sized energy balls – Mine seemed to last forever!
The recipe was ridiculously easy to follow with three steps – Mix, roll, love! Mixing the ingredients in a food processor, rolling by hand and then, get scoffing! There was also a great tip to leave them in the fridge for ten minutes and after this, they were set to perfection. These energy balls can also be frozen for up to one month too, which is great if you’re the only one in the household eating them!
Within my box, the ingredients consisted of all things natural – prunes, cashews, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, cacao nibs, cacao powder, beetroot powder and maca powder.
I have tried maca powder in smoothies before and it adds such a gorgeous taste, as it did with these energy balls too.
Combined with the sweetness of the prunes and cacao powder, the beetroot powder worked surprisingly well. With the slight earthiness, it added an extra layer of flavours and also made the energy balls look beautiful! The pinky-red colour made these energy balls look out of the ordinary and striking!

Rachel’s blog is so stunning – Very clean looking and all of the food looks delicious – Definitely give her a follow!
Overall, I can’t express how convenient this box was and I would definitely purchase again. With every ingredient being full of goodness, what more could you want?
