Creamy, sweet and pink! These raspberry protein balls are indulgent and gorgeous, encased in a white chocolate shell that makes you feel like you’re biting into a raspberry truffle. The secret to the creaminess is none other than cream cheese!

Ingredients used to make this
**I’ve linked some of these ingredients to amazon.com to give you an idea of what they are, but you should also be able to find them in your local grocery store (usually, the natural & organic food section).

- Raspberries – I used fresh, and I roughly chopped it up using the back of a fork
- Cream Cheese* – I’ve tried using both dairy and vegan cream cheese made from almond milk, and both turn out delicious.
- Protein Powder – You can use any protein powder for this. I used a vanilla plant-based protein powder.
- Coconut Flour – you can use any brand of coconut flour for this recipe.
- Melted white chocolate chips – I used regular white chocolate chips, but you can also use white candy melts or almond bark. I also like using this stevia sweetened brand since it’s lower-carb/lower sugar diet-friendly

How to Make
How to Make Raspberry Protein Balls
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, use a fork to roughly chop the raspberries
Mix until no crumbs remain
Roll the batter into tablespoon sized balls, refrigerate for 15 minutes to set
(optional) dip or drizzle the protein balls in melted white chocolate
Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- You can use other berries for this recipe, such as strawberries, blueberries or blackberries
- Feel free to experiment with natural flavoring / extracts. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn’t feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as lemon extract or raspberry extract
- Add a tablespoon of chocolate chips into the batter if you don’t want to have to melt and coat the protein balls in chocolate
- You can also use semi-sweet chocolate to coat these raspberry protein balls. You can also use my healthy keto chocolate recipe instead!
How to Make this Healthier
- Make this even healthier by adding a handful of nuts, seeds and old-fashioned oats to add texture and nutrition. Even better, add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, or chia seeds.
How to Store
- Store these protein balls covered in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.

- Coconut flour and protein powders are all very different depending on brands, so if you find that the dough is too soft, add more coconut flour; if the dough is too thick, add a teaspoon or more of water, honey or liquid sweetener of choice.
