Oh goodness….

It’s been a while since I have been into the garden as the weather has been constant days of rain and wet.

But now…

This morning there was a celebration of LIGHT, golden LIGHT, warm LIGHT, glorious, goodness-filled LIGHT, a welcome, a gentle sigh, a return and a new beginning…

golden zesty mango coconut balls

Adapted from Honestly Healthy

Makes about 20 balls.

Quoted from my teenage son, “Oohh…..these feel so cooling,”  as he popped three in his mouth, one after the other.

ingredients :

100g dried unsweetened unsulphured mango

½ cup rolled oats

1½ cups desiccated coconut (unsweetened) + extra for rolling in

5 Tblsp maple syrup (can add less or more)

2 Tblsp coconut oil

zest from two lemons

juice from half a lemon

¼ tsp turmeric powder

preparation :

Soak the mango in water for about 20 – 30 minutes and drain.

Place the oats in a food processor and pulse on high until they turn into a floury powder.

Add the coconut, soaked mango, maple syrup, coconut oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and turmeric powder. Pulse until the mixture comes together. The mixture will be quite wet but will come together easily.  Using your hands, form the mixture into small balls, then coat them in the extra coconut.

Freeze the coconut balls for 20 minutes.  Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
