Mango, Goldenberry, Coconut Balls

Mango balls 11

 

Great balls of sunshine! These mango, goldenberry and coconut balls are like golden balls of sunshine! They are so easy to make and so delicious too. They are juicy morsels of joy with tangy goldenberry and sweet mango combined with fresh lemon or lime and sweet fragrant coconut.

These no bake balls are suitable for those following a paleo, vegan, raw food, dairy-free, no refined sugar diet and people like me, who just want to have healthy delicious snacks. They do not require any baking and can be frozen for months too, making them ideal for batch cooking. I am quite partial to a couple of these as petit fours after dinner with a mug of green tea and they make welcome snacks on the go. They always go down a treat at parties and afternoon tea too.

To bump up the nutrient profile I have included protein powder. If you have run out, you can substitute for coconut flour, (which can be eaten raw!) or hemp seeds or more simply more desiccated coconut.

You only need a handful of ingredients and can whip up a batch in under 30 mins (plus chilling time). I think they are my new favourite healthy snack! These also make a great gift, especially for a health conscious discerning foodie. Just pop into a jar and you have a homemade gift faster than you can pop to the shops!

Makes: 20 balls

Preparation time: 24-30 mins (allowing 30 mins soaking time and some chilling time)

Ingredients:

  • 60g Dried mango (unsweetened)
  • 40g Dried goldenberries
  • 70g Coconut cream, melted
  • 50g Desiccated coconut, plus an additional 10g for rolling
  • 25g Protein powder (pea or soy bean) or hemp seeds or more desiccated coconut or coconut flour
  • Zest from 1 Lemon or 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp Lemon or lime juice to make it more zingy or water
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Optional: 1 tbsp. baobab superfruit powder to make it even more citrussy!

 

Method:

 

  • Place the dried mango and dried goldenberries in a medium sized bowl and cover with tap water. Leave to soak for 30 mins.

 

  • Drain the water away and gently blot the rehydrated fruit with some kitchen roll or a tea towel to remove excess moisture.

 

  • Place in a blender or food processor along with the melted coconut cream, desiccated coconut, protein powder, lemon or lime juice and zest, salt and baobab powder, if using. Blend to combine. You may need to stop the blender and using a spatula, scrape down the contents and repeat the process.

 

  • Using your hands, roll teaspoon amounts of the mixture into balls and roll in some desiccated coconut. Place on a plate or in a Tupperware box and repeat until all the mixture is used up. Refrigerate for 15-20 mins before eating. These keep in the fridge for about 2-3 weeks and ideal for long-term storage in the freezer.
