We have a new product at the clinic that I am very excited about. It’s a food-based fibre supplement called Nutracleanse. It is a great addition to your diet because it feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut and it helps sweep out things that shouldn’t be in your gut, all while keeping your regular. The reason I like this product so much is that you can add it to foods easily so that it becomes part of your daily diet.
Since I am now at home 7 days a week with 2 very hungry kids, I came up with this really tasty snack ball recipe using our Nutracleanse fibre product. It’s very easy to make and the snack balls are tasty and very filling at the same time. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
1 cup nut butter
½ cup Nutracleanse fibre product – can be purchased at the True Potential Clinic
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup powdered Swerve (or ¼ cup granulated sweetener of your choice) *
Optional: ½ cup chocolate chips (I use Lilly’s or Krisda brand because they are stevia sweetened)
How to use sugar-free sweeteners
I use Swerve in this recipe, which is a powdered erythritol product. I like to keep added sugar to a minimum in my house, so this is one way I can do that without depriving my kids of treats.
If you prefer to use regular sweetener, granulated coconut sugar would be a good option, OR if you use a liquid sweetener like honey or maple syrup, you will need to add more Nutracleanse. I would suggest using ¼ cup of liquid sweetener to start and then adding 2 tbsp more of Nutracleanse. If the dough is still quite sticky, keep adding Nutracleanse 1 tbsp at a time and mixing well until the dough becomes a firm ball.
Mix nut butter, sweetener, and vanilla until thoroughly blended. Add in Nutracleanse and mix until a dough forms a firm, slightly sticky ball. If the dough is very sticky and not forming a ball, add Nutracleanse 1 tbsp at a time, and mix well until dough forms a ball. Mix in chocolate chips if adding, then separate dough into 12 parts and roll into mini- balls. Store in fridge to firm them up and enjoy!
