Yesterday I popped into Get Fresh which is located in Stepaside Co. Dublin to pick up some smoothies for myself and the kids. It is also a fruit and vegetable shop with the most amazing selection of all types of fruit, vegtables and nuts. While I was waiting for my smoothies to be made I spotted a jar on the counter called Kai Raw Mix Jar. It's a Jar which contains Dates, Almonds, Cashews nuts, Sunflower seeds, Goji berries, Chia seeds, Coconut, Pumpkin seeds and Raw Cacoa and allows you to make your own healthy energy balls at home and yes i am like a magpie to stuff like this! The owner kindly gave me a Jar to try out and it did not disappoint! Amazing! All the ingredients are natural and with no added sugar unlike what you get in the supermarkets, no baking and Irish made so whats not to like!
Actually if you read the label on the Jar it says that the idea of the raw mix jar came about after seeing so many processed snacks full of nasties in the supermarkets which is so very true!
The company that makes them up are called Rai Raw Food and based in Ranelagh but you can get them at Get Fresh in Stepaside and a big thank you to the owners Lisa and Niall for giving me a jar to try!
Blend the ingredients in a blender until fine, then add 1tbsp of water, shape into a ball and set in the fridge and there you have some heathly and homemade energy balls on-the.go! ( Makes 8-10 Balls)
I would highly recommend picking up a a Jar and great for per/post workout snack
