When inner-beauty guru Charlie de Haas created this ‘Chocolate, Nut & Berry Protein Ball’ using Apotecari’s Hair Food, the Clean Treats founder proved once again that ingenuity is often born of necessity.
A moment to breathe, tell people they’re loved (including oneself) and inner-nurture are often lacking in our fast-paced daily lives. These balls – plant-based with beauty-boosting benefits from vegan collagen, proteins, antioxidants and native Australian superfoods – help in just that: creating that moment to breathe, show love to oneself (and whoever you choose to share with), and illuminate from within.
Deeply nourishing, filling, delicious and incredibly textural (especially when you opt for a crunchy peanut butter), these balls are perplexing at first bite and addictive after that.
Bonus: they’re easy-to-make, require no baking, and most of these ingredients might just already be in your cupboard.
