I have been having fun creating some protein snack recipes using Arbonne protein powder! I am usually very picky about protein powders because I find that so many have a weird tangy taste or chalky aftertaste that I can't stand! Not Arbonne though, their plant based protein is made with pea, rice, and cranberry proteins to create a complete amino acid profile, and it tastes amazing!
These little morsels stem from a previous creation on the blog, mint chocolate truffles, but are packed with protein. If you don't have fresh mint available you can substitute 1/4 tsp peppermint extract, but by adding those fresh leaves you are getting extra phytonutrients as well!
- 20 dates, pitted and soaked
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 2 scoops Arbonne chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Remove from the container using the sides of the parchment paper and slice into bite sized pieces! Store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days! Yum!
