If you’re looking for a sinfully wicked but heavenly healthful treat that’s perfect for pre or post-workout (or just cause), listen up. You can satisfy your hunger and your sweet tooth with these mouthwatering, creamy cheesecake protein balls!

Cheesecake Protein Ball Recipe


Before we get rolling, you need to master the basics first.

Makes: 12-18 balls

Time: 15 minutes prep + 30 minutes refrigerate (to harden)

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces plain light cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener (honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, sugar-free)
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 cup of desiccated or shredded coconut

Directions

  1. Place the first four ingredients (cream cheese, vanilla, sweetener and flour) into a food processor to mix the heck outta it.
  2. Add ¾ cup desiccated coconut into the food processor and blend it well. Reserve ¼ cup to roll the balls in afterward OR dump the remainder into the mix.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  4. Roll balls with your hands; roll in remaining coconut.
  5. Line a baking sheet with protein balls then refrigerate for 30 minutes before eating.

Substitutions


Whatever your dietary preference there’s a way to shape these cheesecake balls to fit your needs!

Sugar-free: Confuse your tastebuds with a sugar substitute like erythritol (sugar alcohol, 70% as sweet as the real stuff) and make this a keto-friendly treat.

Vegan: Whip up a batch of cashew cream. Soak 1 ½ cup of cashews in water for at least an hour to soften them before you drain and toss the soggy cashews through a food processor, and blend until smooth. You’ll also want to add at least ½ cup more almond flour when you're processing the balls so you can form balls.

Nut-free: Not a nutty person? Skip the almond flour and try coconut flour instead! (Coconut is technically a fruit.)

Double-Hit of Protein: Add a cup of whatever protein powder you use into the mix!

Cheesecake Varieties


We don’t want you to get bored, so here’s our ultimate guide to making different kinds of cheesecake!

  • Chocolate: Roll balls in ⅓ cup of cacao nibs.
  • Double-Chocolate: Melt 1 cup of 70%+ dark chocolate and dip refrigerated balls in chocolate. Sprinkle with cacao nibs. Toss back onto the baking sheet and refrigerate until hardened.
  • Chocolate-Peanut Butter: Add heaping ⅓ cup of any nut butter into the food processor and dip in chocolate or roll in cacao.
  • Lemon: Juice 1 lemon and it’s zest; mix in.
  • Berry Blast: ½ cup or more (to taste) of blueberry, strawberry, raspberry or mixed berry (frozen or fresh) to the food processor.  

Ingredients Matter

We love this recipe because the ingredients are nutritious independently, but together they’re made better.

  • Almond Flour: Made from blanched and ground almonds this flourfights off disease-causing free radicals with its high levels of vitamin E. It’s rich in magnesium, for controlling blood sugar levels.
  • Coconut: Monolaurin is antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial for a stronger immune system.
  • Cacao: Is a rich source of easily absorbed iron, heart-healthy antioxidants and tryptophan to help your relax.
  • Dark Chocolate: Containspowerful antioxidants, fiber, iron and offers protection from disease.
  • Nut Butters: Areprotein packed and contain healthy fats and fiber. Can’t wrong here!
  • Cashews: Nutritious cashews protect your heart, eyes and help with weight loss.
  • Lemon: Promotes overall health, weight loss, clear skin, and good digestion.
  • Berries: Asuperfood loaded with antioxidants to fight inflammation, fiber, and is incredibly nutritious.

Cheese is something you eat in moderation as it's high in cholesterol but for the authentic cheesecake taste, use it once in a while!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
