This has to be the quickest little snack to prepare. Pop all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until the mixture just comes together. As the berries are still frozen, the balls are ready to eat as soon as they are rolled. Perfect for forgotten morning teas, last minute visitors, and hungry after-school tummies.
Packed with protein and antioxidants, sweetened with a touch of complex sweetener, these Choc Raspberry Balls are a lovely sweet treat.
Frozen berries are a great option as they are available year-round, and are often much cheaper than their fresh counterpart, but still retain much of the nutritional content such as vitamin C. Berries also have a low fructose content, so are a good fruit option if you are avoiding these sugars.
