Zesty Lemon Chia Balls

chia balls

I love anything with zest! This easy to prepare Chia Balls snack recipe provides a good dose of monounsaturated fats and omega 3 fats whilst the lemon provides vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. The dates are a natural sweetener and low GI for sustained energy. Bon appétit!


SERVE – 30 balls
