I love green tea, figs, & lemon, so what better than to put them all together to make an energy ball?
These green tea lemon balls deliver anti-oxidants, Omega-3, fibre, Vitamins C & E, magnesium, zinc, selenium, & iron. These have a lovely citrus zing from the lemon zest & rind. They are coated in ground flaxseed with ground almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts & co-enzyme Q10, making sure you will be fueled up for the day.
