Recipe Review: Cranberry Orange Amazeballs
Recipe by: The Fitnessista
I had great success last week involving a blogger recipe, so I decided to take on another that has piqued my interested for sometime now: amazeballs, made famous by Gina, otherwise known as The Fitnessista.
I've been looking for a filling and nutritious snack to eat throughout the day and amazeballs fit the bill: healthy fats, high in protein, and a hint of sweetness. Also, this particular flavor is citrus-y and if you know me, I'm all about the citrus.
To be honest, I was little afraid that I wouldn't like these because all I had on hand was my husband's peanut butter (the recipe calls for cashew butter, which I enjoy a lot more). I have a love/hate relationship with peanut butter; sometimes I crave it, but most of the time, I don't even enjoy the sight of it. Regardless, I figured I'd give the old food processor a whirl and then head out for cashew butter if I had to. But no need - these were incredible with the peanut butter!
Note: I did find mine a little hard to form into balls (maybe I did something wrong?), but I didn't mind and they were so tasty, they the mess was well worth it. I stuck the second batch in the fridge and they were easier to handle after an hour or so.
Final Verdict: Citrus friends, you will love this flavor and health-minded friends, you will love the fact that they are incredibly good for you. And yes, I will be making more of these. In fact, I already have made them twice since Brandon and I devoured this first batch. <-- Sign of a good recipe.
