What is a sneaky way to get in some extra antioxidants and powerful nutrients without taking a boring pill?
Powders can be an easy way to increase our nutrient intake – they can be added to hot drinks, smoothies, oatmeal, or various snack recipes.
Here is one simple and delicious recipe that is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and some other beneficial nutrients. What I love about this recipe is that it can be adjusted depending on what ingredients you have on hand – as long as the final result can be shaped into a ball!
The powders added can be substituted for any number of superfood powders. You can find some good ideas for these at harmonicarts.ca.
Blend the following ingredients in a food processor:
½ cup sunflower seeds (or other nuts/seeds)
½ cup dried fruit (figs/raisins/dates) – soaked in boiled water and drained
½-1 TBSP coconut oil
2 tsp blueberry powder
1 tsp rosehip powder
A sprinkle of cinnamon and salt.
Shape into balls and roll in coconut flakes or sesame seeds.
Store in the refrigerator.
And don’t forget to drink plenty of water alongside these tasty treats!
