Filling Ingredients

Coating Ingredients


  • 2-3 candy canes crushed


Filling Instructions

  1. Blend. Scoop the avocados into your food processor or blender container. Add in 1/3 cup peanut butter, 1/3 cup erythritol, 1/2 cup cacao, and 2 tbsp almond milk, and blend until very smooth.

  2. Add Protein Powder. Add 1 cup candy cane whey protein powder and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and freeze until firm enough to roll into balls (minimum 2 hours).

  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and roll the dough into 14 1-inch balls.

  4. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or until frozen solid.

Coating Instructions

  1. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a double boiler.

  2. Coat. Using a fork, hold a frozen chocolate ball over the melted chocolate, then, using a spoon, pour some liquid chocolate on top of it until it is entirely coated. Place the coated ball on the baking sheet. Repeat this step for every ball.

  3. Decorate (optional). Drizzle some liquid chocolate on top and decorate with crushed candy cane.

  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  5. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 7 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
