Looking for a satisfying snack to add to your arsenal? This week I’m stepping up my plant-based snacking game with a review for Frooze Balls. Frooze Balls are plant based energy balls that are vegan, gluten free and made with clean, raw ingredients. Follow along as I share my full review for this new to me brand that I recently came across on Instagram.
About Frooze Balls
These yummy balls of goodness were created by Jeremy Dixon in the kitchen of his New Zealand plant-based Revive Cafes. Read more about that here. These whole-food plant based snacks use only simple clean ingredients like raw dates, raisins, sunflower seeds, coconut and cashews. Frooze Balls are gluten free, vegan, non-GMO, contain no added sugars, preservatives or anything artificial.
Each package contains five delicious servings of raw plant power. Each ball has 50-60 calories so the whole pack is quite similar to eating an energy bar.
Frooze Balls come in six yummy flavors:
- Dark Forest (Cherry)
- Lemon Cheesecake
- Salted Maple
- Mint & Cacao
- Peanut Butter
So how did they taste?
Dark Forest is their most decadent flavor. Made with dates, cacao, dried cherries, and cashews, they taste like the old school dessert but they’re super healthy and perfect for a quick snack. Insanely delicious, this is my personal favorite.
Ingredients: Dates, Cashew Nuts, Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Juice Infused Cranberries (contains cranberries, apple juice concentrate, sunflower oil), Cherries 5%, Raw Cacao, Coconut, Maple Syrup, Himalayan Salt, Natural Flavour.
Upon opening the package, you’re immediately hit with a subtle and pleasant lemony aroma. The lemon flavor itself is light, not overpowering and was quite refreshing. They taste like little bites of lemon cakes rolled in coconut heaven. If you love lemon like I do, these are a must try!
Ingredients: Dates, Raisins or Sultanas, Cashew Nuts, Sunflower Seeds, Coconut, Lemon Concentrate 4%, Himalayan Salt, Lemon Oil <1%, Natural Flavour.
Fudgetastic can best be described as chocolatey, coconutty, chewy, sweet and quite addictive. Quite indulgent with a taste very similar to an Almond Joy candy bar. Seriously, so good! I promise you won’t be able to stop at just one.
Ingredients: Dates, Raisins or Sultanas, Cashew Nuts, Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Raw Cacao, Coconut, Himalayan Salt, Natural Flavour.
Caramel has had a long-term monopoly on salty-sweet desserts, but salty maple is where it’s at. Usually when you see maple it’s paired with pancakes or waffles, which is great, but this is a touch more unique and the flavor is spot on. Salty, maple-y and sweet. If you’re a salted caramel fan you will love the salted maple.
Ingredients: Dates, Raisins or Sultanas, Sunflower Seeds, Cashews, Almonds, Maple Syrup, Coconut, Himalayan Salt, Natural Flavour.
Mint & Cacao
I’m a fan of mint and chocolate so I had great hope for this flavor. Think rich cocoa combined with a subtle natural mint flavor. It has a decadent, truffle-esque texture, and just enough mint. If you love Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies or even a Peppermint Patty then you will love this flavor!
Ingredients: Dates, Raisins or Sultanas, Cashew Nuts, Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Raw Cacao (12%), Coconut, Himalayan Salt, Peppermint Oil (<1%), Natural Flavour.
Out of the six, I would have to say Peanut Butter was the least impressive flavor. The flavor was extremely light and I barely tasted the peanut butter. Taste wise, I got mostly dates along with some crunchy peanut bits to mimic the peanut flavor, which I give them props for. I was looking for more of a peanut butter punch and sadly, I didn’t get it.
Ingredients: Dates, Dry Roasted Peanuts (33%), Raisins or Sultanas, Sunflower Seeds, Coconut, Himalayan Salt.
Overall thoughts: If you are looking for quick and healthy snacks to take on the go, I absolutely recommend Frooze Balls. Love at first bite and I think you’ll agree. These are some treats that you can feel good about!
