Strawberry Bliss Balls Recipe
1 punnet (250g) fresh strawberries hulled (or frozen if not in season)
2 cups desiccated coconut (plus a little extra coconut for rolling)
1 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp honey or natural maple syrup (not maple-flavoured syrup)
Directions to make strawberry bliss balls
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and whizz on medium for 5-10 seconds.
- Scrape down sides and whizz on medium for another 5-10 seconds.
- Take a spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball. Roll each ball in the extra desiccated coconut. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
Makes approx 20 balls (depending upon how big they are rolled). The strawberry bliss balls last approx 1 week in the fridge and up to 2-3 months in the freezer (if they last that long!)
(Note: You can substitute the maple syrup or honey for rice malt syrup. The rice malt syrup will make the balls not quite as sweet as the other two options).
