Beet Loading Balls

by Marewa Sutherland June 20, 2018

Jazz up Beetroot loading in the days up to your event with these tasty grab-and-go snack balls. Each serving of PURE Beet Endurance is 30g (3 lightly heaped teaspoons) so this recipe is designed for a few smaller snack servings throughout the day. 




  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup seeds 
  • 1/4 cup coconut 
  • 6-8 dates
  • 9 teaspoons PURE Beet Endurance
  • pinch of salt
  • Additional water
  • Coconut for covering 


  • Combine oats, seeds, coconut and dates in a blender and blend until the dates are mixed through (tip: to soften dates soak in boiling water for a few mins then drain)
  • Add PURE Beet Endurance and salt, blend through. 
  • Slowly drizzle additional water through until mixture goes from crumbed to sticky (test it by rolling a small ball and seeing if it sticks together) 
  • Roll into balls, cover in coconut (optional) and refrigerate (or freeze prior to travelling).

Recipe notes:

  • This recipe provides a total of 3 Beetroot loading servings and is designed for one person to snack on over a 3 day period. To adjust simply increase or decrease the amount of PURE Beet Endurance added to the recipe. 
  • Saliva is required for the natural conversion of Nitrates in your body so for best results we recommend savouring each mouthful and avoiding drinks while eating these balls. 

Enjoy : )
