This dessert is a little bit different than what you would think of as a Holiday dessert. Sometimes the peppermint this, eggnog that, and apple pie to the sky can get a bit repetitive. It is time to break some holiday traditions and add some clean, refreshing, and zesty to the holiday season. It is time for a healthy EBOOST holiday protein dessert to whip up on the kitchen.
The dessert plays tribute to a style we know and love–protein balls. Protein balls are such an easy delicious dessert that doesn’t require any baking at all. They are full of nutrients and really pack the protein punch while feeling like you are enjoying a delicious sinful dessert.
Break some holiday traditions this year and roll up your sleeves while you roll out some balls.

- Next, add your nut butter, honey, lemon essential oil, and extract.
- Get your hands a little wet and use your hands to mix all the ingredients together nicely combined.
