Prep Time


  1. Place all of the ingredients into the bow of your Ninja Kitchen system, pulse a few times until the ingredients combine together – you don’t want to over pulse as you want some crunch from the cashew nuts.

  2. Add some warm water into a small cereal bowl to wet your hands as you roll the energy balls; also add some acai powder to roll the balls.

  3. Wet your hands, grab a bit of the mixture and begin rolling the balls using your hands when completed roll the balls in acai powder, repeat until you use all of the mixture.

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
