Recipe: Fruity Strawberry Protein BitesJune 28, 2021
Smoothie bowls are easy to prepare and have been gaining popularity for some time now. But they are not only suitable as a healthy breakfast. You can also use them to quickly mix up delicious protein bites with just a few ingredients, which you can take anywhere as a high-fibre snack.
Smoothie Bowls – what are they?
Smoothie bowls started out as a trend, but by now they have almost established themselves as a breakfast classic. Their name has evolved from the fact that the dish is consumed from a bowl. The special thing about the bowl is that one of the basic ingredients is best processed frozen. This makes it particularly creamy.
So it’s almost a smoothie – but the base is usually oat porridge or chia seeds mixed with water, juice or milk and fruit.
We chose the Verival Strawberry-Raspberry Porridge Smoothie Bowl with freeze-dried berries and chia seeds as the base for our recipe. Just add dates, almond paste and agave syrup – and you have all the ingredients for the vegan and gluten-free Strawberry Protein Bites.
Here you can find the exact step-by-step preparation:
Fruity Strawberry Protein Bites
- Pit the dates and put them in a blender.
- Add the Smoothie Bowl, almond butter and agave syrup and blend well.
- Place the mixture in a bowl and knead with your hands to form a smooth dough.
- Separate the dough into approx. 4 pieces and roll each into a strand about the thickness of a thumb. Cut off small pieces with a sharp knife (approx. 1cm x 1cm).
Are the Bites suitable as a pre-sport snack?
Eating the right food before exercise is crucial to your training success, whether you want to lose weight, build muscle or maximise your endurance.
These small, easy-to-digest bites combine complex carbohydrates and plenty of plant-based protein. This makes them an ideal pre-workout meal.
What is the best way to store the bites?
It’s best to store the Protein Bites in an airtight container in the fridge. You can also freeze them. They will keep for a long time. Because they are so small, you only need to take the desired amount out of the freezer shortly before eating.
Have fun making them and enjoy!
