Recipe: Organic Coconut Snowmen

To mark the launch of Organic Feed Your Happy Christmas and the Soil Association’s Organic Christmas Marketplace, Kate Hackworthy, award-winning blogger and author of Veggie Desserts + Cakes, has created this tasty organic treat for kids. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Makes 18 balls (six snowmen)


150g unsweetened shredded coconut, plus extra for rolling

6 tbsp ground almond (almond meal)

3 tbsp unsweetened coconut milk (shake the can well first) 

3 tbsp melted coconut oil

2 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp almond extract (or vanilla)

To decorate (optional):

Cake pop sticks


Dried apricots

Tiny wooly hats

How to make them

  • Whiz all the snowball ingredients in a food processor or blender, scraping the sides down often, until everything is well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into balls, and roll each ball into more shredded coconut. Thread three balls onto each stick.
  • Cut the raisins into small pieces for the snowmen's eyes and mouths, and cut the apricots into triangles for the noses.
  • Decorate with the raisin and apricot pieces and add any tiny hats or scarves.
  • Store them in the fridge until ready to eat.
