Chocolate Mint Protein Balls and Shakes

I am excited to work with Celebrate Vitamins and share the recipes below using one of their excellent products. One of my very favorites. 

Celebrate Vitamins makes a protein powder that tastes exactly like Andes Mint Chocolates. You know those little foil wrapped, rectangular chocolates with a mint-green layer sandwiched between two brown chocolate layers, they came in a little cardboard tray. I loved those suckers as a kid. Celebrate's Chocolate Mint Protein 20 tastes like the liquefied version of those. You can mix it with water or milk and shake it up in a shaker bottle and it's great but I love to blend it with almond or soy milk and ice in the blender into a frosty chocolate mint frappe. It is ahhh-mazing.

It's one of my Mum's favorites so I made her one too. It was Mother's Day after all. Hope all the Mom's (of 2 legged kids and 4 & fur) out there had a nice day.

More Eggface Protein Shakes and Smoothies

You know it was only a matter of time before I started experimenting with it beyond shakes. Yesterday I made a batch of these little fudgy, minty, protein packed balls of love. OMG soooo good.

Shelly's Chocolate Mint Protein Balls

1/2 cup Celebrate Vitamins Chocolate Mint Protein 20 Protein Powder
1/4 cup Almond Meal
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 Medjool Dates
1/4 cup (plus 1 Tablespoon maybe) Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup

Whiz all ingredients (except the 1 T of SF Torani Syrup) in a mini food processor till ball forms, if needed add that additional Tablespoon of syrup (depends on almond meal & date moisture levels, medjool dates are about 20 cals a piece and add a little natural sugar but spread over the entire recipe should be fine for even sensitive RNYers)

When the mixture clumps and a ball forms empty into a bowl and form into quarter size balls. Makes 22-24 balls. You can store them in fridge for up to a week or freeze and bring one or two down into the fridge to defrost when you want a little sweet, chocolate snack.

For the purposes of this post Celebrate Vitamins provided me with the product used. Thanks for the yummy protein.
