Mocha Beetroot Performance Balls

Sweet beets meet cacao and coffee - what a dream combo! We teamed up with Holy Joe organic Cold Drip Coffee for these delicious beetroot cacao energy balls created as a high performance snack for pre and post workout or just whenever you need a nutritious energy boost. These satisfying no bake bites contain our organic Beetroot Powder which can help raise nitric oxide levels in the body, helping to increase blood flow and improve cardiovascular and muscle endurance and stamina. They also contain our premium Cacao Gold Powder which is rich in bioactive flavanols that have been linked to improved blood flow and lower inflammation. Added to these is delicious Holy Joe Cold Drip Coffee, for the additional performance benefits of caffeine. There's also protein from the almonds and hemp seeds and carbohydrates and natural sweetness from the dates ~ for a well rounded (pun intended) snack to keep you going strong. Oh and they taste amazing too!
