Now that spring has officially arrived in The Netherlands, I am in the mood for citrus fruit. I zest lemons and limes for my chia pudding, put it in my smoothie, dressings, well actually in almost everything.
So I thought, why not make some cookie dough like lemon & lime bliss balls. Soft and sweet but at the same time very citrusy, exactly the way I like it. To make them really great as a post workout snack… which I really need after my Ashtanga yoga practice in the morning, I have added some protein powder.
Did you know that proteins together with amino acids are great for muscle recovery after a workout? So i do not think is it a punishment to treat yourself to one of these gorgeous lemon & lime bliss balls.
