While reading my copy of Chalene Johnson’s “Push”, I couldn’t help but skip around to the back to peruse the recipes for a while – and boy, are there some good ones included! One in particular popped out to me, for Chocolate Shakeology Balls. I’d seen variations online of a similar idea before, but had never actually given it a shot in my own kitchen.
I could kick myself that it took this long to try these out – they are delicious.
Chalene’s Chocolate Shakeology Balls are a healthy and quick treat for anyone needing a “quick fix” of nutrients or even a chocolate craving. They took only about 10 minutes to whip up, and Ry and I have been fighting over them in the freezer ever since. Consider making a double batch – I know I will next time around 😉
Chocolate Shakeology Balls
Servings: 6 Serving Size: 2 balls (makes 12 total)
Calories: 135 • Fat: 7g • Carbs: 13g • Fiber: 3 g • Protein: 8g • Sodium: 13 mg
- 1 cup Chocolate PB2 powdered peanut butter
- 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesause
- 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
- Stevia, Truvia or your choice of sweetener, to taste (I used 3 tbsp. organic honey)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl – it’s going to be pretty sticky at first! Once mixed, roll mixture into balls, Chalene suggests making them ping-pong ball sized, but I ended up going a little smaller. You can either eat them immediately (if you are impatient like me!) or you can stow them away in the freezer. They take a little longer to eat out of the freezer, and are a great snack any time of the day.
I just suggest you store them in the back of your freezer so they aren’t all gone when you go to grab one! 😉
Definitely give this recipe a shot, and let me know what you think!
