In celebration, we’re sharing these Raw Lemon-Coconut Spirulina Balls from Annie of An Unrefined Vegan. These little balls of bliss are packed with nutrients and bursting with deliciousness! Spirulina is one of the most nutritionally complete superfoods on the planet. It is a freshwater algae that contains a spectrum of vitamins and minerals, and it is a complete protein. In this recipe, the spirulina adds a gorgeous green color (perfect for St. Patty’s) while the dates, coconut, and pecans make it a sweet treat that all your friends will want to eat! The lemon adds a splash of brightness that complements the sweetness perfectly. Enjoy!
