5 healthy ingredients and a whole lotta love

 

These Power Balls are  one of many easy cleanse-friendly recipes that come in Dr. Jodi Larry‘s handbook for her Cleanse for Life program, which I’ve participated in twice and wrote about here. With spring on its way (please), there’s no better time to consider kick-starting a new, healthy lifestyle.

Craving chocolate or something sweet? Pop one of these babies in your mouth! They are a breeze to make, with only 5 ingredients, and are so delicious you won’t believe they’re so good for you.

Dr. Jodi’s Power Balls
6 medjool dates (soak for a few minutes and remove pits)
1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tsp raw cacao powder
unsweetened shredded coconut

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Roll mixture into balls. Roll the balls in shredded coconut. Refrigerate for about an hour, if you can wait that long.

(My friend Mia, who is a fantastic cook, recommends adding a pinch of sea salt before blending ingredients. I can see where she’s going with that.)
