I've been thinking about making energy balls for a long time. I thought about the deliciousness and ingredients that were easily available in the area I live in.
But then the problem that arose was that I didn't have a food processor. Most energy balls recipes use a food processor.
So I thought about how I can make energy balls with the tools in my kitchen. To do that, I have to rethink what ingredients to use on these energy balls.
I'm glad I finally made energy balls without a food processor. I will share the tips with you. But before I share my version of the energy balls recipe, I want to first discuss the typical Indonesian coconut plant that is different from coconut tree varieties in other countries.
This discussion also follows the challenge of Ten Indonesian Medicinal Plants by Natural Medicine.
The general characteristic of Indonesian coconut is that it is bigger than other types of coconut. The larger size of the Indonesian coconut produces more coconut meat and water. In addition, old coconut produces more coconut milk.
COCONUT FOR ENERGY SOURCES FOR THE BODY
Water and meat coconut both contain carbohydrates which are good sources of energy for the body. They are also high in fruit sugar (fructose) which is low in glucose so it won't cause a rise in sugar in the blood.
So coconut is very good as a source of energy booster for the body.
COMBINATION COCONUT WITH DATES AND BANANAS
Don't stop at the nutritional richness of coconuts, I'm also going to bring you the nutritional wealth of superfood dates, as well as the scent of bananas!
I'll blend them into delicious energy balls!
NUTELLA is optional. You can use it in the energy balls recipe this time or not.
For my version, half of my dough uses Nutella to cover the balls before I roll them into roasted coconut. Meanwhile, for another half portion, I did not use Nutella and immediately rolled the balls into the roasted coconut.
COCONUT DATES ENERGY BALLS
- Grated Coconut, 200-300 grams
- 2 pieces of ripe bananas
- 5-10 pieces of dates
- Nutella for coating balls to taste.
HOW TO MAKE
That was how to make energy balls with coconut ingredients, dates, and bananas. I'm so happy I was able to make my first energy balls without a food processor. This is an important achievement for me.
