I’ve been meaning to post the recipe for these Cherry Pistachio Superfood Bites for WEEKS, so I’m excited to post this blog for you all.
It’s been a crazy summer full of finishing a degree, travel, taking on new clients, yoga teacher training, settling into a new home, and way more.
Come to think of it, many days so far this season have been sustained by quick, easy recipes that I can make ahead of time that taste good (spoiler: I’m talking about this recipe).
You know those $10 “protein balls” you can buy locally at some cafes and vegan spots? Or the identically priced protein bars in the refrigerator section at your favorite grocery store? I’m not knocking those other options, because they have their time and place. These Cherry Pistachio Superfood Bites are essentially them, but much cheaper and tastier, with superfoods and adaptogens thrown into the mix (thanks to my friends over at Four Sigmatic).
The premise of a little bite like this is that it contains not only protein but complex carbohydrates and fats to keep you sustained on the go.
These are my favorite when I have a demanding day of meetings and obligations or the occasional shift in a flight suit to keep me from getting hangry and wreaking havoc on my metabolism via not eating during the day.
Without further ado:
Add ingredients to food processor and process until smooth, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides and get everything mixed in. This is also a good time to do a taste test and make sure you like the flavor
Scoop out small spoonfuls, squeeze, and roll into ball shapes. Carefully roll in pistachios or another topping of choice, and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Store in the refrigerator to firm. Enjoy 🙂
*After a little research I found that the Superfood Protein is currently sold out, but don’t be afraid to substitute a different protein for now. When it comes back in stock, I highly reccomend it as one of very few vegan protein powders that not only doesn’t taste like dirt, but tastes good. (not getting paid to say that)
Use this base for a playground of your own favorite flavors and let me know how it turns out. Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make them and follow along for other recipes, wellness tips, and cute photos of Clarence (that’s my rescue pup).
