Apricot and coconut balls


And to celebrate, I’m sharing one of my all time favourite Christmas recipes – apricot  and coconut balls. Now, typically I make them the traditional way, because Christmas only comes once a year and I sure am not depriving myself of creamy apricot goodness, but I do have a slightly healthier alternative for those of you that would prefer it!

Apricot & Coconut Balls (Traditional Version)

1/4 cup minced/chopped dried apricots

2/3 cups condensed milk

2 cups desiccated coconut (+ extra for coating)

Directions: Mince/chop the dried coconut. Combine all the ingredients. Roll into balls. Coat into desiccated coconut. (Yep, it’s really that easy)

Apricot & Coconut Balls

3 cups desiccated coconut

3/4 cups coconut milk

1/2 cup coconut oil

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

1/2 cup minced/chopped coconut

Directions: Mince/chop the dried coconut. In a saucepan over low heat, combine the coconut milk, coconut oil, honey & vanilla extract. Remove from saucepan and place into a bowl, mixing in the desiccated coconut and chopped apricot. Place the mixture in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes. Then, roll into balls.

I hope you all enjoy these recipes and have a wonderful Christmas Eve! I’m off to go bake some more Christmas goodies! x
