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
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.
