Try this quick gluten free, dairy free and raw snack full of healthy fats for the family to enjoy.
- 3 cups shredded coconut
- ¼ cup melted Jimalie Vitrgin Coconut Oil
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp Jimalie Coconut Nectar with Turmeric
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ cup Jimalie Virgin Coconut Oil
- ¼ cup Jimalie Coconut Nectar or Jimalie Coconut Nectar with Turmeric
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
Starting with the coconut filling, combine melted coconut oil and coconut milk together and whisk together. Add the coconut nectar with turmeric, vanilla and salt and mix together. Add in the shredded coconut and combine altogether.
Use your hands to make balls with the coconut filling mixture and place on a lined tray/plate and place in the freezer for one hour.
For the chocolate coating, melt the coconut oil over low heat in a saucepan. Once melted, add in the nectar and raw cacao powder and mix until it is well combined.
Take the coconut filling out of the freezer and dip the balls in the chocolate coating (I used a toothpick for each ball!) and place on wire rack on top of a lined baking tray/plate. Freeze until chocolate coating is set. If you want double coating of chocolate recoat the balls once the first coating has set and make a second batch of chocolate coating to use.
I packed these in the kids lunch box (considering it was just Winter) for a healhty fat filling sweet treat!
