Why not choose today for the perfect day to cook something BOLD + DARING that will fill up the house with warm, "homey" odors OR to try something outside your “normal go-to” foods + flavors. It is so easy to get caught in a food rut, eating the same things, with the same flavors, blah blah. While that may be "easy" our body recognizes that and then grows less efficient and let’s say "bored." Your metabolism can even begin to slow down. But there's no need to let that happen when you can have these healthy flavors + snacks on hand. There are so many varieties you can make with these Nutty Infusions.

I love to warm + drizzle the Mango Chili Cashew Butter Nutty Infusion on my veggie tacos. The Salted Caramel is a great topping on muffins, and the Ginger Wasabi adds a special zest to my roasted brussel sprouts!

Protein Balls 

With my @NOWFoods Nutty Infusions I can make my special protein balls. I use the Salted Caramel Cashew ButterRoasted Almond Butter, 2-3 drops of Better Stevia Chai Spice, Organic Hemp Seed Hearts, and Vanilla Pea Protein to make a divine unique tasting protein ball!

Try these protein balls with a BOLD flavor twist

1.  Place oats, both nut butters, honey, protein powder, hemp seeds, chia seeds, Stevia Chai Spice, and chocolate chips into a large bowl and stir to combine.

2.  The mixture may be a bit tough to combine if you use other nut butters. If it feels too soft you may try adding 1 Tbsp more of the chia seeds. Use your hands to knead the dough, and that seems to blend it together well.

3.  Once you combined the ingredients use your hands or a small cookie scoop to scoop out and form the dough. Roll it into about one inch size balls.

4.  Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.



This is ONE GREAT TASTY + EASY to make recipe that you can do today to be BOLD. Mix, roll, and then put your feet up - people will think you spent hours prepping it! How else can you create something BOLD + Flavorful today?
