Energy Ball by Up'N Mind : home-made, organic and delicious!
The perfect treat! You asked for them, here are the raw, organic, gluten-free energy balls, home-made in France. So many good reasons to let yourself be tempted by these little balls full of energy and superfoods to satisfy your little hunger and your sweet cravings.
Energy balls are a staple of raw cuisine, many recipes are available online, almost any flavor is possible. But we don't always have the time to prepare them or the right ingredients, in the right proportions, the right mixer to have the right texture or simply, not always the motivation.
With our bags of 20 energy balls, you have them ready at any time and for the whole family. You fill up on a healthy snack with a tested and approved taste, which keeps well (at least 1 month in an airtight container).
Each little ball is rich in energy, it contains proteins, vitamins, fibers and the good fats found in cashews and almonds. Unlike commercial sugary snacks and bars, they have no added sugar, just the sugar naturally present in dried fruit, which helps regulate and limit blood sugar spikes. Be careful, however, not to abuse them, they remain high in calories ;)
Easy to carry, they accompany you everywhere: after sport, on a walk or hike, for yoga, in your muesli in the morning, at the office, after school, and always in your handbag/backpack in case of cravings.
In addition to their "like at home" production, we were won over by the intense taste of the apricot. The acerola adds a subtle sour touch and finally the sesame coating will seduce you with joy. Acerola is a fruit that looks like a small cherry: it is known for its very high level of C vitamin. Enough to give your body a boost!
Focus on dates: Medjool variety, very fleshy, particularly unctuous and melting, balanced in sugar.
Cultivated in the desert in the south of Israel, where the intensity of the sun and the sandy soil allow the production of soft, fleshy and gourmet dates, while being particularly balanced in natural sugars.
> And they are completely pitted in their workshop.
The energy balls, being raw, concentrate the characteristics of all the ingredients that compose them.
Apricot is rich in antioxidant carotenoids, which is what gives it its color. These carotenoids are precursors of A vitamin which protects against age-related macular degeneration and helps with good twilight vision. They also increase resistance to infections. Apricot is a very good source of potassium, so it is particularly suitable for athletes due to its anti-cramp action and maintenance of hydration in the cells. Rich in K, B3 and B5 vitamins, it also brings copper and iron to your body.
Almonds are mainly composed of lipids, in the form of mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids. These "good fats" are protectors of the cardiovascular system and therefore limit the onset of heart disease. Its good balance between omega 3 and 6 helps regulate cholesterol levels, thus protecting the arteries and ultimately the heart. Rich in protein, they are alkalizing. With almonds, you fill up with E vitamin. Antioxidant, they are essential for many mechanisms in our body. In addition, with omega 3, it makes the skin more beautiful, promotes its hydration and limits cellular aging. Finally, they contain many minerals, including a large part of magnesium.
Cashew nuts are, like almonds, rich in unsaturated fatty acids which are protective of the cardiovascular system, unlike saturated fats. As a good source of minerals, copper and phosphorus are directly involved in the formation of collagen (proteins used in the structure and repair of tissues), hemoglobin and cell membranes. Magnesium helps maintain our energy and actively participates in the production of "happiness molecules" to keep our spirits up on a daily basis. And of course, they are antioxidants.
Dates are rich in fibers, so they regulate intestinal transit and relieve constipation. The potassium they contain ensures communication between neurons and other cells of the body, it is among other things a protector of the nervous system. Dates bring you many vitamins (C, B1, B2) but especially iron! Which is ideal for avoiding anemia and managing your production of red blood cells. Finally, they are the ones that will settle your stomach and quickly reduce the feeling of hunger.
To summarize :
- Rich in C vitamin
- Strong antioxidant power
- Relieves digestive disorders

Indeed, the story began with the arrival of the little boy of Hafida and Yassine, the managers of the company. After a few health adventures, and 2 years fed exclusively with a tube, the parents had to think about a diet that was both rich and healthy and adapted to the needs of their child in order to avoid the surgical solution that was suggested to them, namely: a gastrostomy and anti-reflux surgery.
Fruit mixed with medjool dates, cashew cream or almond purée, sultanas and superfoods adapted to his health, this is how little by little, in part, they took up the challenge of removing him the catheter without any loss of weight or deterioration of his health. In short, energy balls mixed with fruit or vegetable purées...
