Coconut snow balls

Coconut snow balls

This is a super-dooper easy treat to do with the kids – or, if you are a coconut fan, for you! It is nut free, gluten free, dairy free, actually – almost-everything-free except for coconut. Lovely!

3 cups shredded/desiccated coconut (preservative free is great if manageable)

1 T rice syrup or agave

1/2 cup coconut cream*

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Process the coconut and syrup in a food processor until finely ground. (Apparently if you keep going it will turn into a paste but mine doesn’t seem to!). This may take a few minutes. Add in the coconut cream and vanilla, and spoon out. Roll into balls and roll in desiccated coconut 😉
Easy!

*Coconut cream. I know I always say it but make sure you buy the best. Don’t buy coconut cream that is half full of water, don’t buy coconut milk and don’t buy low fat! You need the thick creaminess of full coconut cream for this to hold together.

This is such a simple sweet treat but without the usual dramas of sugar highs. It is also great for nut-free households.
