Blueberry Chlorophyll Balls
Balls, they make for quick, easy, portable snacks and there’s so many options and varieties available. I wanted to make something colourful and vibrant using liquid chlorophyll and blueberries. The chlorophyll didn’t end up being as bright as I’d hoped but they’re still colourful and of course taste yummy!
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that helps absorb energy from the sun. Its full of nutrients like vitamins A, C, E and K as well as minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron and potassium.
It supports liver function and detoxification as it can bind to heavy metals and other toxins removing them from the body. It stimulates regular bowel movements supporting the digestive system, as well acts as a natural internal deodorizer.
I like that these balls have a different texture between the two colours as the green chlorophyll mixture is denser and the blue blueberry mixture is softer and kind of fluffier! The coconut flour lends a lovely coconut flavour, which is sweetened with the medjool dates and raw honey.
These Blueberry Chlorophyll Balls need to be stored in the fridge but do well if packing in a lunch at room temperature as well. If you wanted you could also roll these balls in something like sesame seeds, cacao powder or even matcha powder.
- Chlorophyll Mixture
- 6 medjool dates, pitted
- 1/3 c raw cashews
- 2 tbps coconut flour
- 1 tsp chlorophyll
- Blueberry Mixture
- 2/3 c raw cashews
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- 1/2 c blueberries
- 1/3 c shredded coconut
- Place all ingredients for the chlorophyll mixture in a food processor and combine until it sticks together when pinched between two fingers.
- Transfer chlorophyll mixture to a bowl and set aside.
- Add all blueberry mixture ingredients to food processor and combine until it sticks together as well. The blueberry mixture will be more sticky than the chlorophyll mixture.
- To make balls combine chlorophyll and blueberry mixtures rolling in-between hands to form a ball. To prevent sticking rinse hands with water first.
- Store in the fridge.
