Three ingredients is all you need to whip up this delicious recipe! Moreover, there is no need to use the oven either! You can easily make them with your kids or have on hand when guests come over. Personally, I tend to use them as cake decorations. Did I mention you can also make these "adult friendly" by adding rum to the recipe? There's just so much you can do with coconut balls but let's just stick to the kid-friendly recipe for now!

Coconut is also super healthy for you - we use it all the time whether it's in the kitchen or a part of our beauty routine. Coconuts are rich in fiber and are loaded with essential minerals and vitamins (but, hey, you don't have to tell your kids that!) Not only that but coconut boosts the immune system, improves digestion, improves good cholesterol, and so much more. Who would have thought that coconut was merely just tasty?!

I really enjoy adding coconut to my recipes, the flavor is scrumptious and the ingredient is always so easy to come by. Besides, having a no bake recipe that only needs three ingredients is my idea of an amazing dessert! How about we try that recipe now? :)
