What You Need to Make this Recipe
As mentioned, this recipe is truly very easy, and you only need a handful of ingredients to make it. Make sure you have 310 Mocha Shake on hand for the bulk of the flavor, and then you will need oats, your choice of nut butter, maple syrup or honey, shredded coconut, and any other add-ins!
Before we move on, lets take a closer look at some of the ingredients, below!
310 All-In-One Mocha Shake
310 All-In-One Mocha Shake is a new flavor, but shares all of the impressive benefits of all 310 All-In-One Shakes. What I really love most about this flavor though, is that it satisfies my cravings for that chocolate-coffee flavor without the sugar and high calories.
Plus, I love how this shake powder only contains a very small amount of caffeine - that way I can always add in my own coffee to recipes if I choose or (in situations like this recipe), I love that there is no caffeine at all.
Instead, 310 Mocha Shake empowers you with a variety of plant-based superfoods, vitamins and minerals, probiotics and enzymes for gut health, and amazing flavor (naturally - no artificial anything).
Next, I like using rolled oats in no-bake recipes because they help add a chewy texture and are a great way to incorporate complex carbs and beta-glucan, a form of fiber, into your day.
Peanut or almond butter
I always have peanut and almond butters in my pantry, but you can use whichever nut butter you’d like to bind all the ingredients together. Not only do nut butters add immense flavor to these protein balls, they’re also a source of healthy fats and protein.
For a touch of additional sweetness, I add pure maple syrup. If you don’t have maple syrup, honey works as well.
How to “Shake Up” this Recipe
If you're anything like me, you may crave completely different things on different days, so don't be afraid to switch up this recipe with your cravings. Here are some ideas:
- Use a different nut butter (cashew, sunflower, or even pecan butter work well)
- Try a different 310 Shake flavor (310 Chocolate Bliss, Vanilla Creme, or Cookies 'n Cream) also work well in this recipe
- Get creative with your add-ins! Try white or espresso chocolate chips, crushed nuts like walnuts or pecans, or dried fruit like cherries or apricots.
