strawberry coconut bliss balls // gluten free

Sometimes amazing things happen for no real reason, leaving you stunned, mouth agape, or possibly even with your jaw resting on the floor. Your eyes might decide that a head is no place to belong, and attempt to pop right out of your skull. Or, maybe you have an out-of-body experience and, for the first time, are really able to inspect your hairstyle from every possible angle.

An amazing thing happened to me recently.

Strawberry Coconut Bliss Balls {Wheat Free} - Beware the Beans

I received a collaboration offer from Promise Nutrition, a new company that manufactures pure and natural protein powders. What does this collaboration involve? All I have to do is what I love: be inventive. There were no guidelines laid, no restrictions placed upon me, all I have to do is create recipes incorporating their whey protein isolate. The company itself is a beautiful one – not only does it strive to promote health and wellbeing, Promise Nutrition also donates to charities which are voted for by its customers. The company’s beginnings are humble enough: husband and wife duo Alistair and Sarah share a passion for health and fitness, and, astounded by rising obesity statistics around the country, wanted to start a company based on honesty, integrity and transparency. In return, I promise to be transparent with you, the readers, and will say that although this collection of collaboration posts will be sponsored, all opinions are my own.

Promise Nutrition are currently undertaking some exciting adventures of their own, with a giveaway currently running through Instagram and Facebook (see this post for details). What’s more, Promise Nutrition have provided me with a unique coupon code to share. During March only, any purchase of their 1kg Berry Bliss Whey Protein Isolate or 1kg Organic Cacao Whey Protein Isolate will receive a 10% discount simply by entering the coupon code “ROSIE10” at the checkout. Apologies, this offer has now finished. 

Without further ado, here’s recipe numero uno of this exciting venture: strawberry coconut bliss balls.

Biting into one of these fresh strawberry coconut bliss balls instantly releases the taste of berries, a burst of flavour that coats the whole mouth. The texture of these bliss balls is one to be savoured; dense but not solid, perfectly sticky and chewy. Keeping in line with Alistair and Sarah’s vision with Promise Nutrition, I’ve packed the strawberry coconut bliss balls with all-natural good-for-you ingredients, including their Berry Bliss Whey Protein Isolate, which is rich in antioxidants.
