Green Coconut Christmas Stars

I’m all for a cute Christmas themed recipe, especially when I’ve added Melrose Health Essential Greens powder to not only naturally colour them but add a serious boost of plant fuelled nutrition. I love adding greens wherever possible, and the combo of spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and barley grass makes these sweet treats unparalleled to any other sugary Christmas junk!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ cups desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp Melrose Health Essential Greens Powder
  • 2 tbsp erythritol based sweetener* OR 2 tbsp honey 
  • ¼  cup coconut butter, melted
  • 100g vegan white chocolate (optional)
METHOD
  1. Place coconut, almond flour, greens and erythritol in a large bowl and combine.
  2. Add in the coconut butter and ¼ cup (60 ml) water and combine to form a crumbly mixture.
  3. Press into a star shaped silicone mould and place in the freezer to set for 30-60 minutes.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each, or in a double boiler and drizzle over the stars. Store in the fridge.
 
Notes
  • May be erythritol or Lakanto.
  • Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that forms the base of many granular “sugar free sweeteners”. Read more about what erythritol is here, including my product recommendations. The use of erythritol in this recipe is what makes it low-carb and/or keto friendly. If this is not a worry for you, the best substitution is coconut sugar which can be used in the same quantity. Please know that the use of coconut sugar takes away the sugar-free status of this recipe and may alter the colour of the finished product. Read more about sugar and my philosophy here.
