Cacao Mint Bliss Balls

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

If you love the classic chocolate and mint combination, then you’ll love this healthy dessert (or snack)! These balls contain fibre, good fats, protein, calcium, magnesium, manganese and vitamin B2. If you prefer to make only chocolate balls, just leave out the peppermint oil. You also have the option of rolling them in extra cacao powder or nibs for extra nutrients, more flavor, and more chocolate.
