Pina Colada Energy Balls

 12 balls  10 min prep  32g / ball

These sweet energy balls will transport you on a beach with palm trees and white sand! The sugars contained in this snack will provide quick energy to keep you hiking whether you are on the beach or on a snow-covered mountain!


  • ½ cup (125 ml) pitted dates
  • ½ cup (125 ml) dried and sweetened pineapples
  • ½ cup (125 ml) roasted cashews*
  • ½ cup (125 ml) sweetened shredded coconut, divided in 2 equal parts**

* I used coconut cashews from Trader Joe’s to get extra coconut taste.

** If you want a snack that doesn’t taste super sweet, I suggest you use unsweetened coconut.


  1. Put aside ¼ cup (60 ml) of shredded coconut.
  2. Combine all the other ingredients in food processor.
  3. Blend until it reaches the desired texture. This can take a few minutes.
  4. Roll into balls and roll in the shredded coconut.
  5. Wrap for your trips! Enjoy!


Keep them in the fridge or even freeze them for better conservation!
