Last week, I impulsively signed up for Laura @ Mommy RunFast’s sugar detox. I signed up for the challenge, without much thought or preparation, because while I go through periods where I don’t really want sugar very much, I also go through some insane sugar cravings. And if I think about a certain sugary item, then I immediately want it.
Monday and Tuesday both went relatively well, except for a few swallows of kombucha and a bite of Kim’s birthday dessert at her surprise dinner Monday night. But Wednesday morning I was absolutely dying for some sugar, so I made these coconut peanut butter balls using dates to add sweetness. They remind me of something my mom used to make when I was little and they're a great sweet snack without a hit of refined sugar.
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons oats
2 tablespoons flax seeds
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1. Add all ingredients to food processor and blend until it sticks together.
2. Form mix into balls and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Have you ever done a sugar detox or other kind of cleanse?
