Trick and treat – The Raw Baller makes clean-eating snacks that taste too naughty to be true
The struggle to eat clean is something so very real to so many of us, especially when it comes to sweets. Most of us have been burned before by products that claim to be a delicious alternative to our favourite treats but that are in fact a chalky bland ball of lies. The buck stops here, friends – The Raw Baller knows your gripe and is here to change the game. Boasting a delicious range of raw high protein balls, this is one killer treat (minus the cheat).
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that’s exactly how The Raw Baller came about. After a serious health scare prompted her to make drastic dietary changes, founder Kylee was disillusioned with the options on offer in regards to clean, high protein treats. The certified girlboss was choking on a protein bar that had a texture and taste akin to bark when she decided to take matters into her own hands, striving to create a product that married deliciousness with health in equal measure. The Raw Baller has truly hit the nail on the head with this formula, creating a range of nourishing protein balls that you can snack on totally guilt-free.
The balls all share a base of cacao, organic dates, high quality whey or vegan protein powders and coconut oil, then are flavoured with more delicious natural ingredients to create treats to suit every taste. The Baller is the OG product, flavoured with orange zest and rolled in freeze-dried raspberries and coconut. Smooth Caramel is adapted from a family fudge recipe and features a gooey centre with pinches of pink Himalayan salt, while the Triple Cacao Pow pretty much just tastes like a heavenly brownie batter. The range is rounded out with Mr Snickers, a vegan and dairy-free saviour that consists of organic peanut butter, cacao and Prana vegan protein. The future is looking decidedly delicious for the brand, with a red velvet truffle and chai cookie dough ball in the works.
