Snowballs (gluten, dairy and soy free)

The holidays are always so packed with yummy and endulgent foods and when you’re a mom is not always easy to say no to the kids. Especially if they are surrounded with candy and sweets at all the holiday parties. So I came up with this recipe that tricks my kiddos into thinking they are having candy when they are actually having dates! Yeap, dates! My kids eat dates and they love them! We call them snowballs, which is a nice holiday theme name but you can make these year round.

 

Snowballs:

  • 1 cup of dates (pitted)
  • 1 cup of walnuts (or nut of your choice)
  • 1 cup of shredded coconut (divided in 1/2 cup portions)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt (or salt of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  1. In a food processor, add walnuts and pulsate until ground. It’s entirely up to you how fine you want the mixture, I prefer a chunky snowball so a medium chop works best for me.
  2. Add dates and pulsate until well incorporated, dates will start looking like a paste.
  3. Next add the rest of the ingredients (only 1/2 cup of coconut) and pulsate until incorporated and well mixed.
  4. Remove from food processor into a bowl.
  5. Knead with both hand to make balls, roll into desired size.
  6. Roll balls on the remaining shredded coconut. 
  7. Enjoy!
  8. Refrigerate any leftovers in an air tight container.

Make you to give them a try! The kids love making these with me and they are so easy and not too many ingredients. Children are more likely to try new foods when you invite them into the kitchen to get involved in the process.

Indulge without guilt with LALA yogurt smoothies


This is a sponsored post in collaboration with LALA® Yogurt Smoothies and WeAllGrow Latina.

When you’re a mom your perception of food changes a bit. Maybe you want chocolate for breakfast but obviously can’t because you don’t want your kids to think it’s ok, so you either hide in the pantry or just give up your super bad eating habits. And although I am thankful for having to be more mindful of what I eat in front of the kids, I still want to feel like I indulge once in a while, which is so hard to do when you have a little one permanently attached to your hip. It was hard…until I discovered LALA® Yogurt Smoothies.


These adorable bottles of not only healthy but super delicious drinkable yogurts are such a game changer. I can satisfy my sweet tooth, while getting protein, vitamins and they are only 100 calories! What?!? Yes, you read that right! 100 calories for creamy deliciousness. 

My favorite LALA® Yogurt Smoothies is the mango flavor, since it’s made with real fruit it’s so good, specially in these winter months when mangos are not season so getting my mango fix is soooooo hard! No fake mango taste here. 


And like I said before zero guilt, my kids love them. Specially my 4 year old who can be a bit picky. He asks for “those yummy drinks” with a straw and I have the peace of mind that my little meat hater is getting protein and doesn’t even know it! 

LALA Yogurt Smoothies are the perfect on-the-go snack too! From kids to adults, everyone loves them. And the best part they are available at your local HEB stores.
