Caramel Coffee Recovery Balls

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

We have teamed up with Holy Joe cold drip coffee & Wilda PT studio to create these delicious protein rich balls, designed to help recovery after a workout or a nutrient dense snack at any time.

Using activated almonds & pecans, tahini, hemp seeds, pepita seeds & puffed amaranth, these provide not only plant based protein, but also a handy dose of dietary fibre and a nice mix of vitamins, minerals & phytonutrients.   


Gluten Free, vegan

We use all organic ingredients
