I am not a big breakfast person, so if I disguise breakfast as something much more appealing- like candy- I am 100% on board. This morning I snacked on a handful of chilly, sweet, fresh and luscious cocount candy mixed with white nectarines, the prize this week of the Farmer’s Market.
This takes about 3 minutes to make and it is VERY nutritious as well as artful and yummy! It is an adaptation of THIS recipe I saw on Raw Food Recipies. This is something just about anyone can make!
Farmer’s Market Raw Coconut Candy
- 2 cups dried, unsweetened shredded coconut. (you can get raw, dehydrated coconut if you want this to be totally “raw”)
- 1/2 cup melted/liquid coconut oil (again, you can use “raw” but it is not necessary)
- 2 tbs honey
- 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
- 1 piece of super fresh Farmer’s Market stone fruit (or a healthy handful of berries)
I put the first two ingredients (coconut & oil) in a Vitamix and tamped it down until it becomes a sticky and slightly creamy mix. If you have a decent blender or food processor and pause frequently to move the contets of the jar around you should be able to get it close to that. Add in the honey & vanilla. Whir some more.
I chopped up a white nectarine and spread it like confetti on the bottom of a large, loaf-shaped freezer container. You can use a baking pan or even foil-lined, coconut-oil coated muffin tins.
Pour the coconut mix over the fruit. I mix it a bit with the nectarine as I spread it out in the pan and create a flat, fruit-jeweled layer.
I sets in the freezer for a bit until it will hold its form but not quite frozen rock solid. It is very hard not to eat a whole batch with a friend in a sitting….!
