Coconut balls
These coconut balls are the perfect recipe; they are easy, fast, you do not have to cook, are delicious, and have few ingredients; what more could you ask for?

Also, they are considerably lighter than most sweets.

Coconut balls
For those of you who do not like coconut, we have a similar recipe for chocolate truffles that you can see here; it has some ingredients in common, although in this case, the predominant flavour is chocolate.

They are also prepared in less than 10 minutes, and you do not need to use the oven or cook.

Coconut balls
In the step-by-step recipe, we recommend that after doing the first two steps, put the coconut balls in the freezer for about 20 minutes so that they do not stick so much to your hands and are easier to handle. 

If you don't have the patience or can't wait to eat these delicious balls, you can make them directly.

 If you decide to follow our advice and put them in the freezer, we recommend that when you batter them with coconut, you wait 20 or 30 minutes before eating them so that they are not complex; we do not want you to break a tooth because of us!

Coconut balls
We have used a fresh coconut to make the recipe, but if you can't find it or prefer not to complicate your life, you can use grated coconut to make the coconut balls

In addition, by using coconut in its natural state, we have been able to take advantage of the water it contains to make the balls, and it gives it even more coconut flavour. 

However, you can add water or vanilla extract without problems.

In our case, we always prefer to use the freshest ingredients possible to avoid additives and to take advantage of all their properties. 

How to open a coconut can seem complicated, and if you don't know how to do it, it can be quite an odyssey.

We have made a post to explain how it is done; you can see it here; it is much easier than it seems!

You can also substitute the almonds for another dried fruit or the agave syrup for another syrup that you have at home. 

However, we recommend that you use it because it has excellent properties in addition to its superb flavour. 

Since we have tried it, we try not to use another sweetener unless it is essential.

Lately, it has given to us by the coconut; in fact, we have a couple of recipes using it that we will publish shortly.

I envy people who live in countries where it is common to use it in their gastronomy or drink the water with a straw, which by the way, in addition to being very refreshing, is delicious and has excellent properties. 

For this reason, when I eat one of these balls, if I close my eyes, I can imagine that I am in the Caribbean surrounded by coconuts and palm trees (if I stand next to a stove or something similar because although it is not very cold here, it does not that make a tropical temperature).

So if you like coconut, you have to try them, it only requires 10 minutes of your time, and you can enjoy something sweet, healthy and addictive; that's why we recommend you do the right things because if you don't, you won't be able to stop eating them, they get hooked!
