The Alpro #Deskfest Challenge – Day Two
I’ve got a meeting this morning and as I’m not sure what the vegan options will be like, how healthy they will be, or how long the meeting will run on for – I’m going to come prepared! I’ve got my coffee to set me up for the walk and I’ve made an energy-packed breakfast to keep me going.
To keep up with one of my resolutions I’ve put together some raw energy balls, inspired once again by my favourite cake; carrot cake. These are really simple and quick to put together – you can prepare them the night before, or in a few minutes while you’re brewing your morning coffee!
Raw Carrot Cake Balls
makes around 8 balls
1/2 cup of oats
1/2 a decent sized carrot
6 or 7 dates
cinnamon and vanilla to taste
Alpro vanilla pouring yogurt
Blitz all of the ingredients (apart from the yogurt) up in a blender until it becomes a sticky mess.
Scoop out and roll into balls, and then roll these balls into a sprinkling of oats.
Pop your raw balls into a bowl and when ready to eat, pour on some Alpro pouring yogurt.
It goes perfectly with this recipe – the creamy yogurt adds subtle sweetness and moisture to the carrot cake balls. I’ve packed everything up in my trusty tiffin box and tupperware (both in super practical sizes!) so I can enjoy my breakfast when I get to my meeting.
Have you ever tried raw foods for breakfast? Have you tried Alpro pouring yogurt?
