Ingredients:

  • 260g (2 cups) Frozen Organic Blueberries
  • 1½ cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 32g (1 scoop) Organic Chocolate Whey Protein Powder (you can try Vanilla too!)
  • ¾ tsp Stevia Extract
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum, divided

Instructions:

  1. In a high speed blender, add the frozen blueberries, almond milk, protein powder, stevia and 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum.  Puree until completely smooth (I used the smoothie program preset on my Vitamix twice).  It should double in size.
  2. Pour the entire mixture in a stand mixer bowl.  Place the bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Fit the bowl onto the stand mixer with a whisk attachment and whip on high speed for 10 minutes.
  4. Turn off the mixer and sprinkle in the remaining 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum.  Whip on high speed for 8 minutes.  Mixture should be very fluffy and should have increased in volume again.
  5. Detach the whisk attachment from the stand mixer and place inside the blueberry mixture.  Place the bowl in the freezer again for another 15 minutes.
  6. Reattach the whisk attachment and bowl to the stand mixer.  Turn on high speed and whip for 7 minutes.  Enjoy!

  2. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
  3. Working with a small amount of the mixture at a time, shape into a ball, and place on the prepared baking sheet. (The mixture doesn’t roll very easily, so I recommend squishing it into a spherical shape instead!) Repeat with the remaining mixture. Transfer the energy bites to an airtight container, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
