Coconut Oil Berry Snacks
(raspberries, blueberries, pomegranates, cherries and strawberries)

Coconut Almond Rum Balls. Easy Festive Coconut rum balls. Make these into Indian sweet Ladoo with cardamom in place of rum.
Coconut Oil Rum Ball Ingredients
Servings: 12
•   1 cup Coconut Joe’s™ Coconut Oil
•   1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, pomegranates, cherries and strawberries)
•   1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•   14 drops clear liquid stevia (or substitute honey to taste)

Kitchen Essentials
•    Food processor
•    Silicone chocolate molds or parchment paper

Preparation
•    Gently melt coconut oil on the stove. While the oil is melting, briefly process the frozen fruit in a food processor so it’s chopped up into small pieces. Add the vanilla extract and stevia.
•    Pour the melted coconut oil into your food processor and process to mix with the fruit and other ingredients. Continue mixing until all of the fruit is smoothly blended into the oil.
•    The mixture should now be a thick blended consistency. If for some reason your mixture is still frozen and not blending properly, you can remove some of the frozen bits and gently melt them on your stove.
•    Once melted, return the mixture to your food processor and try again to mix everything together smoothly.
•    Scoop finished mixture into molds or simply drop spoonfuls on a parchment paper-lined surface such as a cutting board. Using the molds will make your coconut berry delights prettier, but simply dropping them as spoonfuls works just as well if you don’t have or don’t want to use molds.
•    Put molds or parchment paper-lined surface into the freezer to firm up the delights. After half an hour or so, or whenever they have become solid, remove from the molds/parchment paper and store in a container in your freezer. Enjoy whenever you feel like you need (or want!) some coconut oil.
