Shakeology Power Balls

It's the holiday season! The time between now (Thanksgiving) and Christmas is my FAVORITE time of the year! I love the lights, the Christmas music, Santa, holiday parties, and everything else about the season!

Something I've noticed since starting on this journey, is that it's hard to pass up dessert. You already know that I'm a self confessed SUGAR ADDICT. So, dessert is a hard one for me!

I was invited to go to a holiday gathering and decided that I was going to disguise a clean snack as a dessert. Guess what??? NO ONE NOTICED! So that means it's time to share it with you!

Here ya go!

(makes approximately 12 balls)
  • 8 Tbsp PB2 (low fat, high protein powdered peanut butter)
  • 3 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter (the ONLY ingredient should be PEANUTS!)
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Shakeology
  • 3 Tbsp Honey (I use organic)
  • 1/2 cup Quick Oats

  1. Mix PB2 with water until it's a paste-like consistency.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, inclding the PB2 mixture, together in a mixing bowl. It may take some time to blend all the ingredients together. If it's too sticky, sprinkle in some additional Shakeology so that it's a dry/crumbly texture.
  3. Roll the mixture into small individual balls (about the size of a ping-pong ball) and place on a piece of wax paper.
  4. Place the Shakeology balls into the freezer until they are firm.
  5. Store in the freezer for up to a week or serve immediately while they are still frozen.
This recipe will make approximately 12 balls. Each ball should be around 1 oz.
