Spring is here and its time to get fruity with desserts. These babies are totally raw so they are bursting full of nutrients!
Coconut and apricot go so well together both sweet but not too over powering. Coconut mimics the properties of antioxidants and boost vitamin E; this supports tissue health and leads to healthy glowing skin. The medium-chain triglycerides found in coconut also promote the development of ketones, one of only two energy sources available to the brain, and are believed to enhance the immune system.
They are so simple to make and are a great go to snack for that 4pm dip in the day!
Ingredients: (makes 18-22 balls)
- 150g dried apricots
- 100g almond meal
- 150g shredded coconut
- 50g raw coconut oil
- In a food processor blend the almond meal, apricots and desiccated coconut. Melt the coconut oil on a low heat.
- Slowly add the melted oil into the food processor until the mixture forms into a dough. Roll the mixture into bite size balls with your hands, then place into the freezer for half an hour, then refrigerate until munching time!!!
