Shakeology Power Balls

It's the holiday time and to be honest, it's really hard to stay on track with all the holiday treats and parties all over the place!  But, as I've made a commitment to live a healthy life, that doesn't leave room for me to OVERINDULGE in junk (mainly sweets) like I have in the past years.

I came across this recipe today and am so excited to try it out.  I've run out of a couple ingredients so need to restock….but as soon as I do, I'm making these!!  It's perfect timing as the kids are getting off school tomorrow for Christmas break!

What I plan to do is keep these in the freezer for those "gotta have something sweet" kind of evenings where I would love to reach for something that I would regret later!  Can't wait to try them!

Shakeology Power Balls, Clean Eating
Shakeology Power Balls


  • 8 tablespoons PB2 (low fat, high protein powdered peanut butter)
  • 3 tablespoons Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Shakeology
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/2 cup quick oats


Mix PB2 with water until it is a paste like consistency.  Mix all ingredients, including PB2 mixture together in a mixing bowl.  May take some time to blend all the ingredients together.  If it's too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it's a dry/crumbly texture.

Next, roll mixture into small individual balls and place on a wax sheet.  Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each.  Put in freezer until firm.

Optional: You can make these with 6 tbsp of PB2 and 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter, but the calories and fat are higher.  If the recipe above is too chalky tasting, add the extra peanut butter (and do some extra push ups!).

Enjoy!  Hopefully these will be a great alternative for you to satisfy your sweet tooth!
