Triple Chocolate Protein Balls

We all want to fuel our summer bodies for success so this week’s recipe is protein-rich and delicious too! Adding a little extra protein in your diet doesn’t have to mean quinoa, edamame or meat. Protein can be sweet too! We tried Terra’s Kitchen Nutrient-Rich Protein Powder to make these Triple Chocolate Protein Balls.  They’re decadent, chocolaty and super simple to make in a pinch. Save this recipe for a day you want a guilt-free protein-packed treat!
