These peanut butter no bake energy balls require only one bowl, eight ingredients and about 10 minutes of hands-on prep time. You’ll love having them as a portable snack option!
This recipe is really forgiving and works well with a lot of different substitutions. Here are some common subs I get asked about often:
Pro tip: If you don’t happen to own a juicer, you can use a blender instead. Simply combine the beet, apple, and lemon with half a cup of water, give or take, and blend on the highest setting for about 60 seconds. Then pour the blended contents through a strainer or cheese cloth.
Dosage: One of the great things about beet juice is that you can feel the effects in as little as three hours. For the best results, drink one to two cups. And if you’re looking for sustained reduction in blood pressure, drink at least that much on a daily basis.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
Beets are generally safe for consumption, but due to their high levels of oxalate content, they carry the risk of contributing to kidney stone formation. People with sensitive stomachs or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) should also eat cautiously, as beets can cause digestive discomfort.
