Preparation

for 35 servings

Step

1

Of 3

Prepare the base

Sift the ricotta cheese inside a bowl to make it creamier, add the powdered sugar, and mix everything with a spatula until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency

Step

2

Of 3

Mix coconut for the bites

Once you have a smooth mixture, add 250 g of coconut and mix again, until it is uniformly incorporated.  

At this point, use a spoon to scoop out about 20 g of the mixture.

Step

Of 3

Assemble the coconut balls

Transfer the 20 grams of mixture to the palm of your hand and work it into a ball.

Place the ball in a small bowl where you will have placed in the remaining 50 grams of coconut flakes for the final garnish and move it gently to cover the entire surface. 

As you make them, transfer the coconut balls to a tray. With these doses you will get 35 balls of 20 g each. 

You can transfer them to the refrigerator for about 10 minutes before serving so that they compact slightly and most importantly gain freshness.
