I always loved coconut ice as a child but as it’s loaded with sugar I haven’t eaten it in years so I decided to make my healthy equivalent. Coconut has become increasingly popular as a health food and you can understand why when there are over 1,500 studies showing that it supports weight loss, balances blood sugar, kills candida, improves energy and so much more. With very little added sweetener these energy bites have a subtle flavour of lemon that are guaranteed to have everyone asking for the recipe!
If you are doing an elimination diet protocol to test for food allergies then these coconut truffles make the perfect substitute for an indulgent treat. Nut free, egg free, grain free they contain super healthy coconut ingredients that are very gentle on the digestive system.
- Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth
- Roll into small balls the size of ping pong balls
- Pour a little extra desiccated coconut on a plate and roll the balls in the coconut to coat
- Refrigerate to harden and devour!
