Walnut, white mulberry & coconut balls
Quick, easy and delicious!! If you’ve got friends dropping over for a cuppa and you want to put something sweet and decadent on the table … try these healthy little beauties!! To make them look a little more upmarket roll them in some fine coconut, I didn’t have any when I made these but it would have made them look a lot prettier.
1 cup sundried white mulberries
¾ cup active walnuts – normal if also ok but they need to be dry
½ cup dry coconut
Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until sticky and will hold together when pressed into a ball
Shape into balls then roll in coconut
White Mulberry Jam
This is an quick, easy and versatile jam that you can use in anything. Add it to your granola, muesli or oats with nut milk, spread on a plain 4 seed cracker, spread onto a raw fruit nut base for a mulberry jam cake or make a mulberry milkshake!! …. OK, ill do a recipe for this one! Add it to your ice cream… or just eat it as it is!!
Makes: as much as you want!
Sun dried white mulberries
Enough pure water to cover
Pinch of vanilla powder
Sweetener if needed such as agave, honey, coconut sugar or stevia – I didn’t use and it was fine but that up to the individual.
Soak the mulberries in the water for a couple of hours making sure that you only just cover them, don’t add too much water because you want to use it all as it will contain a lot of the flavor and sweetness from the mulberries. Too much will make the jam runny and watery.. not good!
Blend in a personal blender to your desired consistency, leave some chunks if you like texture or make it super smooth if that’s your thing!!
Store in a glass jar if you don’t consume it straight from the blender cup.. Good luck with that!!
If you really like it, do a large batch in a proper blender.
It is really important to make sure you don’t add too much water!! You can always add it if needed but you can’t take it out!
