  1. Soak chia seeds in Nexba Mixed Berry Kombucha for 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and seeds become gel-like.
  2. Add all ingredients to a high speed food processor. Pulse to combine until mixture sticks together. If mixture is too wet to roll, add additional ground almonds.
  3. Roll 1-2 tbsp portions of mixture into balls and coat.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
  5. Store in air-tight container in refrigerator or freeze.
Chia seedsChia seeds contain tryptophan, an amino acid that triggers the release of serotonin in the brain and promotes good mood & good sleep. Being a source of magnesium, they also promote relaxation and support stress levels!
Nexba Mixed Berry KombuchaOur kombuchas are deliciously fizzy and loaded with probiotics which help to keep our gut health in check. Nexba Kombucha contains a unique strain of live probiotics which are specifically crafted to survive the journey from mouth to gut.
CacaoRaw cacao is a delicious way to add antioxidants, plant iron, magnesium and calcium to your diet. Raw cacao can even help improve your mood, thanks to its tryptophan, tyrosine and phenethylamine content and its interaction with mood-enhancing neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins.
