Ingredients

For coating:

  • ¼ C fine shredded coconut unsweetened

For the snowballs:

  • ½ C almond flour
  • ½ C shredded coconut unsweetened
  • 2 teaspoon matcha
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup or any liquid sweetener to taste
  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract or sub vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 tablespoon almond milk

Instructions

Coconut coating:

  • Place fine shredded coconut into a small bowl and set aside. This will be for coating the balls. (Note: if the coconut flakes are large, place into a coffee grinder and pulse a few times, until light and powdery).

Make the matcha coconut snowballs:

  • In a food processor, combine together the almond flour, shredded coconut, matcha, maple syrup, coconut extract, and almond milk.
  • Pulse until the mixture comes together. (When the mixture is pressed together, it should hold its shape).
  • Use a small ice cream scoop (or tablespoon) to form balls.
  • Roll the mixture between your hands until it is a round sphere.
  • Coat the entire exterior of the ball with the coconut flakes. Repeat with the remainder.
  • Place the coated snowballs in a container and store in the fridge.
