Watermelon Protein Bites

Developed by blogger Anya Shinall of Anya’s Eats, these amazing bites were the winner of Go Raw’s 2016 recipe contest. They incorporate both watermelon flesh and Go Raw’s sprouted watermelon seeds and are the perfect snack either pre- or post-workout!

  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked
  • 1 1/2 cups Go Raw Sprouted Watermelon Seeds
  • 1 cup fresh watermelon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter
  • 1/8 - 1/4 cup roughly chopped beet

Pit dates if they’re not pitted already and chop them in half.
Place into a bowl of purified water and allow to soak for 1-2 hours.
Once dates are soaked, remove them and place them into a food processor.
Pulse a few times and then add 1 cup watermelon seeds, coconut butter, watermelon, reserving ½ cup of the seeds for later.
Add the mashed beet if you are using it.
Blend until well combined, scraping the sides of the food processor as you go.
Add the rest of your watermelon seeds and pulse so that some of the seeds remain chunky.
If you want a smoother texture, continue to blend but I think these are great with a nice crunch.
Remove mixture from food processor, place in a small bowl and cover, allowing to cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Remove the mixture from the fridge and keeping your fingertips slightly wet, roll the mixture into balls and place only a plate.
Once you are done rolling, add a few extra watermelon seeds to the top.
Place the watermelon bites in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until nice and frozen!
