Matcha Chocolate & Goji Berry Energy Balls

With so many ways to use Matcha in everyday cooking, today I decided to make some yummy Matcha Chocolate & Goji Berry Energy Ball treats.

Matcha Energy Balls

 

I love cooking with Matcha because is can aid your health in the following ways.

  • Raise energy levels for up to 4-5 hours
  • Create a state of calmness and mental clarity due to the L-theanine it contains
  • Boost metabolism by 35-40% (when consumed regularly);
  • Act as an anti-inflammatory – it contains huge amounts of the phytonutrient called epigallocatechins (137 times more than what green tea contains)
  • Help to stabilize healthy blood sugar levels
  • Support healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range;
  • Act as a blood detoxifier and alkalizer;
  • Act as an adaptogen, helping our body deal with the stress of training.
