MANGO HEALTH BENEFITS
Mango is nicknamed The King of Fruits because of its many health benefits 🙂
COCONUT HEALTH BENEFITS
This easy recipe is simply made from 3 ingredients. The fresh mango is blended with little honey into a smooth puree. We then cook the puree on low heat for 15 minutes. After that, we stir in shredded coconut and powder milk, and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
The puree becomes a paste. We set it aside to cool for 20 minutes so we can roll them in small balls. We then coat them with shredded coconut. It is as simple as that!
Mango Coconut Truffles ~ Kids' Cuisine
- 1 Mango (large) Washed and peeled
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 2 tbsps Powder Milk
- 200 gr Shredded Coconut
- Food Processor
Making the Mango Puree
Cut the mango in chunks. Place them in the food processor. Add the honey, and blend it all well into a smooth puree.
Transfer it into a saucepan.
Over Low Heat, stir the mango, then leave it to simmer for 15 minutes. Stir from time to time.
Meanwhile, prepare the coconut:
Preparing the Coconut
Wash the shredded coconut, and soak them in water for 5 minutes.
Remove on a sieve, and leave for 2 minutes for all excess of water to drain out.
Scoop 4 tablespoons of coconut in a bowl. Use your fingers to gently toss them a little.
Set aside. We will use this later to coat the truffles.
Turning the Mango Puree into a Paste
Add to the Mango Puree (past the 15 minutes) the remaining coconut and the powder milk. Stir well, and leave it to simmer for another 2-3 minutes only.
Transfer the Paste into a large plate, and set aside to cool for 20 minutes.
Rolling the Truffles
Scoop the paste, and roll it into a small ball. Drop it on the coconut bowl, and roll it gently to be coated on all sides. Set it on a serving plate.
Repeat until all the paste is done, and you have all the Mango Truffles nicely on your serving plate.
