Make a delicious batch of no bake protein balls with this quick and simple cocoa & almond protein balls recipe using the Nutramilk!  


  • 2 cups almonds
  • 8 dates
  • 2 tbsp. protein blend 
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Begin by blending the almonds in the Nutramilk processor until obtaining a consistency you like. This can be chunky bits or fine crumbs or even a mixture of the two.
  • Next, add the dates, protein blend, cacao powder and salt. Blitz this again until the mixture is well combined and clumping together. 
  • Now it's time to get stuck in and get your hands dirty. Form around 20 protein balls from the mixture. These should be big enough for at least 2-3 bites regardless of the fact people like to call them energy 'bites'. Once rolled, the base healthy energy balls are ready to be enjoyed.

  • You can now roll them in any toppings of your choice, if wanted. I mentioned some options for various powders and crushed toppings*. You could also cover them with melted chocolate for more of a sweet treat. This is the best option for large chunks like pistachio, cacao nibs etc. 

  • These protein balls can then be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks or freezer for a month.
