Healthy Dessert Balls!

Healthy Dessert Balls

A lot of you have been asking for more healthy recipes, specifically desserts! I wanted to start with easy dessert balls because truthfully, there are many variations/substitutions when it comes to these recipes!

I have made them vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and for the most part, sugar free. But you can switch up the recipe to your liking! The recipes are sugar free (for the most part) because I use Lakanto Monk fruit Sweetener. Monk Fruit has many health benefits and is all-natural. It has zero calories and zero carbs so it won’t spike your blood sugar!
