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)

Ingredients

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

Raisins

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.
