Strawberry Coconut Bliss Bites

These are the easiest little bliss bites (didn't call them bliss balls - mine are in teh shape of strawberries!!) to whip up, and they are perfect for kids lunchboxes or anyone with nut allergies as they have no nuts in them. The best part is that they only have 3 easy ingredients (oh I just realised it's four because I added a touch of vanilla at the end!) simple the kids could do it!

If you want an easy treat, a simple lunchbox filler, or just a yummy little morsel to satisfy a sweet craving, these are a go to...and perfect for these hot summer afternoons with the berry coconut flavour...bring on the chilled drinks and cold snacks!

These would also be ideal for a little something to give as a gift or have on the Christmas table coming in to the silly season... all of those festive moments need food right?! You could get a wee Christmas tree mold and make them really fun.

Strawberry Coconut Bliss Bites

Gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, free of refined sugar

1 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup dates
1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Pop all ingredients in to a small blender and blend until well combined. The mixture may seem quite dry to start with but if you blend it for quite a while the oils will heat up and will start to create a more sticky mixture. If you find your mix is still quite dry and you can't stick it together, try adding a teaspoon or so of coconut oil just to help the ingredients to combine.
2. Either for the mix in to balls or pop in to molds then leave in the fridge until set.
3. Store in fridge to help keep them firm and to get them to last longer
