These vibrant deep purple power balls pack an energising punch. Keep a pack of blackberries in the freezer and just take out a few when you need them; the beetroot will happily sit for a week or so in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator, ready for action.


  • 85 g/3⅓ oz/4 Medjool dates, stones (pitted)
  • 110


  1. Add the dates, oats, almonds and ginger to a food processor and blitz together until finely chopped.
  2. Add the beetroot and frozen blackberries and blitz again until the mixture begins to clump together.
  3. Squeeze the mixture together, take out of the processor bowl and cut into 16 pieces. Roll each piece in the palm of your hands to make a smooth ball. P
