Coconut Love

I love everything coconut as soon as summer is about to begin and up to the end of summer – in fall and winter I cannot stand it. As soon as it gets cold I am craving peanut butter in my soups and sauces instead of creamed coconut. But in summer… I cannot get enough of it. This is why I have to share two of my favorite coconut recipes with you; coconut bliss balls and coconut “milk”shake! Sooooo delicious!

Let’s begin with the shake which is so easy, actually healthy, and extremly delicicous!

All you need for two large glasses are the following ingredients:

1 Tablespoon Creamed Coconut
1 Handfull of dates
Some Vanilla
About 500ml water and about 10 ice cubes

Blend everything except for the ice cubes in a high speed blender. Add the ice and blend again until you get a thick and smooth shake. Sprinkle some coconut flakes on top if you like.

For the bliss balls you will need:

2 heaped tablespoons creamed coconut
2 tablespoons popped quinoa (or amarant)
Some agave syrup (or mashed dates)
1-2 Tablespoons coconut flakes
Some Vanilla

With your hands mix all ingredients except for the coconut flakes together. If the mixture is too soft, add some coconut flakes. If it too hard add some agave or mashed dates (dates blended in a high speed blender with some water). Make small balls (with wet hands) and roll in them a bowl with coconut flakes. That’s it.

The bliss balls taste best when you leave them in the frigde for a little, so that they are all hard and cold when you enjoy them.

Do you like coconut? And what is your favorite coconut recipe? I am curious so please let me know!

I really like creamed coconut instead of the fresh coconut meat because it is almost impossible to find good coconuts around here. When you use some high quality organic creamed coconut you will get all the flavor from it and it will be almost as good as fresh coconut meat. I do not use coconut oil in the kitchen at all. I do not use any oils to be honest. Oils are refined products and since I am only eating whole foods and no refied products, there are no oils in my kitchen cabinet. However – I love coconut oil for my skin. I will share more about how I use it very soon 🙂

    Wow, those coconut bliss balls sound and look so delicious! I’ve just bookmarked this page because I definitely want to give it a try, I love coconut, too! Isn’t it funny how we tend to enjoy or crave certain foods during a specific time of year? Any other time, it just feels off, right!? Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    Yummy, I would like to try this shake, I love coconut flavour. I add coconut shavings to my oatmeal sometimes and I like to make homemade coconut milk, very tasty:) And I like coconut in my bake goods:) Now I dont use any fat to fry, since I bought this non stick pan, but I use extra virgin oils to my salads, but olive oil is my favourite. You asked about yellow plums, I dont use them so much, cos my parents or my parents in law dont have those trees in their gardens, but I would make a simple drink out of it. If I were you iI would boil it with water and some sweetener (or not) – it will be smth like infused water, but with more flavour:) I cant wait for your post about deodorant! Have a great weekend, I think I will spent most of my time watching TV – The Pope is here and since I couldnt go to Cracow I want to experience that even through the screen:) Hugs:)))

    I personally love coconut, I know some people don’t but I just love it. The shake looks great, and I also like to make coconut energy balls. Great job! x/Madison

    Oh my! This looks delicious!! I love coconut (all year round, I guess, haha) and I’d LOVE to try these recipes as they sound quite simple and look beyond delicious. I’m literally hungry now! 😉

    I adore coconut as well and will have to try this “milkshake”. What a great idea!

    Yum yum! Thanks for sharing. I’m not used to use cocoa in my recipes, but I will.

    Aww, I’m obsessed of coconut! I love everything that content coconut. I definitely must try this shake and I’ll make some coconut bliss balls too. Big thank you for these recipes!

    Ich bin kein sooo großer Kokosnuss Fan, aber Ravaelo mag ich gern… 😉 Gekühlt sind deine sicher auch toll, gerade im Sommer. 🙂

    Haha, ich denke ein Meerjungfrauenschwanz ist schon mit Abstand das Verrückteste was Models im Schrank haben. Zumindest ist mir nun noch nichts seltsameres untergekommen. Aber wer weiß das schon…

    Liebe Larissa, jetzt muss ich schon wieder ein wenig schmunzeln, denn ich liebe Kokosnuss auch – sehr sogar! Zur Zeit esse ich es am liebsten in meinem Sommermüsli, allerdings habe ich jetzt sehr viel Appetit auf Deine offenbar extrem leckeren Kokosbällchen 🙂 Diese auszuprobieren lohnt sich garantiert, davon bin ich überzeugt! Daher danke fürs Teilen und Euch noch ein wunderbares Wochenende.

    I have yet to try something like the coconut bliss balls. Would love to try making it. Dishes with coconut that I love… Well more of coconut milk. You’ll enjoy various dishes here in the Philippines cooked with coconut milk (or “gata” as the locals would call it). 🙂
