I’m in love with these cake balls. There. I said it.
You know what I also love? When experimenting in the kitchen turns into something YUMMY on the first try. Those experiences are few and far between, so let me just take a second to pat myself on the back for a second for this one, okay?
I feel like kombucha has recently made a name for itself in the health and wellness space, but it took me a while to actually find a flavor I liked. I started out with a Ginger one that was just WAY too strong of a flavor in my opinion, so I held off on trying more booch for a while after that.
Fast forward to me finding some on sale at Whole Foods (I have shiny object syndrome with anything labeled “SALE” in a store, regardless of whether or not I actually like (or need) the item). I picked a safer flavor, the GT Strawberry Serenity, and the rest is history. I’m a booch fan.
I can’t make this up. As I was unpacking my groceries, the booch and Simple Mills cake mix were on the counter side by side just staring at me in the face (I had picked up the mix to use to make goodies for a friend’s birthday), a light bulb just went OFF in my foodie brain. I got flashbacks to a cake that was an internet sensation way back when. If it can work with sugar filled crap like soda and regular cake mix, why not try it with kombucha and Simple Mills (ya know, with an ingredient listing I can actually pronounce)?
Let’s make these cake balls the next internet sensation, shall we?
This is a trendy wellness blogger’s DREAM treat…Kombucha combined with a Simple Mills Gluten-Free product?? Am I kidding?? These are super simple and fudgy AF.
- One box of Simple Mills Chocolate muffin/cake almond flour mix (Gluten Free)
- 1/2 a bottle of GT Kombucha (8oz total) – I used Strawberry Serenity, but I think many of their flavors would work well!
- 1/2 container of Simple Mills Chocolate frosting
- Optional – 1 cup melted chocolate and 1 TBSP coconut oil
Make the Cake
Combine the cake mix and 8oz of kombucha in a bowl, then pour the mixture into a greased rectangular baking dish. Please note that it will be extremely watery, but just trust me on this.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 min (or until a toothpick comes out clean)!
Sip on the remaining booch while the cake bakes or go crazy and make a second batch 🙂
Form the Balls
Once the cake is cooled, break it up and combine with 1/2 container of @simplemills frosting. Then, roll into 25 balls and freeze for 20 min to allow them to set.
Combine 1 cup of your choice chocolate chips with 1 TBSP coconut oil. Dunk each cake ball in the mixture (and maybe get fancy and add some sprinkles on top). Allow to set before enjoying!
Even though I used the chocolate cake mix, I am sure the vanilla would work as well! Now is your chance to get creative (with minimal ingredients needed might I add…)! Let me know what flavor combinations you try with this recipe, and be sure to use hashtag #BoochBonBonsbyB if you make these!
