Raw Coconut Balls

Packed with superfoods and natural sweeteners, this recipe for Raw Coconut Balls will help to keep sweet cravings in check.

These balls may be small (which is great for taking them everywhere with you!) but they contain some serious nutrition, which makes them the perfect pick-me-up. I especially recommend enjoying these balls before and after exercise to give your body the energy it needs!

What is Lucuma?

Lucuma is one of my favourite natural sweeteners and you can buy it in powder form. It’s made from a subtropical fruit tree that is native to South America and can reach heights of 50 feet!

Not only is this sweetener free from gluten, but it also contains a range of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Lucuma is useful for giving your immune system a boost as well as contributing to the function of several essential functions in the body.

Lucuma powder is especially high in potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Using this sweet powder in your baking instead of regular sweeteners can help to promote optimal health.

Ingredients:

To make 10 – 12 of these balls, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups / 70z / 200g of desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling)
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp of raw honey
  • 1 tsp of lucuma powder
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds

Method:

The first step is to place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz for two to three minutes, or until you have a thick, coarse mixture. You can then remove the mixture from the blender. Next, using a large melon baller or your fingers, scoop and shape the mixture into 10–12 balls.

Roll each of the balls in a little bit of desiccated coconut and place in the refrigerator to chill for about 20 minutes before serving.

This tasty treat will stay fresh in your refrigerator for up to three days. As mentioned previously, these balls are great for taking with you as you go about your busy day. So trust them to give you an energy boost when you need it!

  1. These look and sound delicious! I bet my kids can help me make them and would love them…I just hope I can find the ingredients in Wyoming lol!

  2. made these today! They turned out so yummy. my only problem was making the balls not fall apart, some came out perfectly shaped and others not so much. I’m super excited to have a new treat that’s much healthier than those bought at the store =)
