Peanut Pro NuttZo Cake Balls

Don’t ever let someone tell you cake can’t be good for you when you can make it with this Peanut Pro NuttZo frosting! Healthy fats from the nut butter combined with the gut health benefits the probiotics in the kefir provide, this frosting is basically a health food.

Ingredients

FOR THE FROSTING:

2 ¾ - 3 cups powdered sugar

½ cup kefir (can also use any milk or nut milk – just won’t have the probiotics)

½ cup Peanut Pro NuttZo

3 pinches Himalayan salt (more to taste)

FOR THE CAKE BALLS:

1 box cake mix of choice

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup water

Directions

FOR THE FROSTING:

Pour two cups of powdered sugar in a medium mixing bowl.

Add all other ingredients and whisk until combined.

For a thicker frosting, add more powdered sugar, up to three total cups.

Taste and add more salt if desired.

Place in the fridge to thicken while making the cake.

FOR THE CAKE BALLS:

Combine cake mix, Greek yogurt, and water together in a mixing bowl and stir until combined with minimal lumps.

Bake in a greased cake pan according to cake mix directions (until a toothpick comes out clean).

Let cool and then remove from pan.

Remove any burnt or golden-brown edges (these don’t mix well into the ball dough).

With the remainder of the cake, use your hands to press into a large ball of dough (feel free to add a couple tablespoons of frosting into the dough – makes it moister and tastier!)

Using a scooper or tablespoon, take bite-sized amounts and roll into individual balls.

Submerge each ball in frosting completely, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, top with any additional desired toppings (I used coconut flakes and cacao powder!) and set in fridge ~20 minutes before serving.
