I love French food.
The past month has been a celebration of duck confit, steak frites, pungent cheese, and rich desserts. I have been blissfully content and enjoying every minute of it.
But when my sweet friend left me behind some healthy goodies before heading up to Paris I was elated. I miss coming up with healthy delicious treats to share with you.
These goodies included two of my favourites: shredded coconut and goji berries. I have been eyeing the goji berries at the health food store here but they were a little over my budget, so this little bag is gold to me.
I was craving a little something sweet this afternoon and had a small carton of coconut milk in the fridge that I’d opened for a stir fry the night before. I decided to experiment and came up with these deliciously simple coconut goji bites.
You’re welcome to play around with the recipe as you like. If the coconut milk seems a little heavy, you can sub part of it for a lighter nut milk. You can also replace the stevia with a sweetener of your choice.
The only rule about these delicious little morsels is that you keep them in the freezer. That way they stay together and are also like little bites of coconut ice cream. Yum.
