Dairy Free Blueberry Lemonade Energy Bites

Gut health has never been so tasty!
        As an ambassador for Genuine Health, I get amazing gut health products to use in recipes.

  One bite of these refreshing sweet yet tart Blueberry Lemonade Energy Bites is all it takes to bring back childhood memories. When I was a kid, I remember a raspberry coconut snack cake that was pink and had the word zing in it. Those pink cakes were my favorite and may have been the reason I was a chubby kid. I really loved the raspberry taste that that unhealthy snack had but as a kid, I had no clue about nutrition or chemicals in food but I do remember being chubby and stomach pains all the time. This mom does not want that for my boys so I am glad that I discovered a way to make a sweet treat that is loaded with superfood goodness and prebiotics for gut health. These bites are made with delicious blueberries, vitamin C-rich fresh lemon juice, vitamin E-rich sunflower seeds, and energizing coconut. They also have a great taste of summer berries thanks to my secret ingredient.

Make these bites and enjoy them all week!



  These bites get their delicious summer berry flavor thanks to fermented organic gut superfoods, which delivers 22 fully-fermented superfoods and prebiotics for total gut health. I am glad that I discovered a delicious way to keep my boy's immune system happy and healthy. I am also sneaking in 22 superfoods into their diet like spinach, broccoli, beets, and more. These sweet energy bites give my boys plenty of energy in a delicious treat. I also enjoy these Blueberry Lemonade Energy Bites as they have the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Kind of like a refreshing glass of blueberry lemonade.

 I made these sweet balls of deliciousness in my food processor with ingredients that I had in the house. So there was no need for a grocery store trip. I always have plenty of the Fermented Organic gut Superfood in my pantry as I use it daily in my morning vegan protein smoothie. Right now I have plenty of apricots in my freezer so I have been enjoying dairy-free apricot smoothies for breakfast. I love friends who have fruit trees! These yummy energy bites are also dairy-free which is a plus for me as I had to recently eliminate dairy from my diet due to a severe milk allergy that was causing my asthma to be out of control.

  6. I like the way you led with your (unhealthy) fruit treat you enjoyed as a child, but then transitioned your memory into a healthy version for yourself and your kids. Blueberries with lemon is one of my favorite flavor combinations. Yum!!!!
