Hello you beautiful people! Today is a great day because we have another giveaway for you guys!! I recently connected with Amy from Paleo Angel who was kind enough to send me some samples of her amazing products! Amy has created these tasty paleo power balls with the intention of offering those following the paleo “diet” and autoimmune protocol a nutritious but still delicious treat.
These babies are packed with a variety of super ingredients including organic coconut, coconut milk, extra virgin coconut oil, collagen protein, raw honey, organic fruits and pink himalayan sea salt. To learn more about each of these make sure to visit the site! Amy sent me a variety pack which includes 4 packs, one of each flavor. Each pack contains two balls which was plenty for me as a snack. Nutrition facts vary by a few grams depending on the flavor but each one kept me plenty full before a workout.
The vanilla was by far my favorite flavor. It wasn’t overpoweringly sweet and still packed plenty of flavor. I found it to be similar to a vanilla protein powder or if you’ve ever had SFH Fuel, it was similar to that. It was a perfect mixture of coconut and vanilla!
The strawberry and blueberry flavors were a close tie for second but ultimately strawberry won me over. I found that with that with the other three flavors, the coconut flavor wasn’t as noticeable. Therefore, the strawberry really tasted like strawberry. And with actual organic strawberries in them, it’s no surprise! If I was looking for something to satisfy my sweet tooth, I would definitely turn to this!
As I said above, blueberry was tied for second but I really think it could go either way. I just happen to prefer strawberries over blueberries. Blueberry was similar to the strawberry in that the coconut taste wasn’t as noticeable and it truly tasted like blueberries. I can’t stress enough how awesome it is that real, organic fruits go into these!
Now, I know what you’re thinking, how could chocolate be at the bottom?! It’s not that these weren’t amazing, I just preferred the other flavors. And usually when it comes to chocolate, I’d rather just have a bar of it or some chocolate chips. I definitely think these taste more dark chocolate-y as well so if you’re not a fan of that, you might not like these. As with the fruit flavors, I didn’t notice the coconut taste very much at all with these. But to be clear, I LOVE coconut so even if it did taste coconut-y I’d still love them!
As I mentioned above, I really think these are great for a pre-workout snack. They pack a good balance of fats, carbs and protein without being too filling. I even had my step-dad try one and he liked it as well! That’s coming from a non-paleo person! I highly recommend checking out Amy’s site, Paleo Angel.
