Aloha on the brain, as it most often is at Christmas time for me. Perhaps it’s my upcoming trip, Vancouver winters or my affinity for coconut. But these plant based power treats are really hitting the spirit of aloha in me.

This creation was the adaptaion of a larger recipe of a coconut cream pie, and when one lovely retreater at my last endeavour mind body and soul, miss Mac, mentioned how much she loved the crust, I thought I would explore this. Well, these little snowball nuggets were created.

Nutrient dense, flavourful, comforting and filled with potential for other adaptation. And super simple too. These power balls have made the rounds from lululemon and HQ at Aritzia, they went over well with the fashion set in which I included a pinch of Maca for energy, and also probiotic to strengthen gut health. Or what about swapping out the Vanilla for a splash of Peppermint (you won’t need as much fyi) for candy cane snowballs?!

Maybe Santa is getting a new plate of cookies with his milk this year.

The world is your oyster..ahem, power ball.
