Cherry Choc Coconut Bliss Balls

Updated: Mar 30, 2020

This recipe has been created with the only motivation in mind is treating yourself. Inspired by my Mum's love for traditional Cherry Ripe, I wanted to create a recipe that honours my food values; preservative free whole-food ingredients and organic where you can.

Added perks is that it is gluten free, dairy free and vegan friendly.
