Raw Licorice & Coconut Snack Balls

From time to time we need to implement both the Ying & Yang to find our balance, the masculine energy that strengthens our courage and the feminine energy to nurture our creative sensitivity.

I, therefore, felt inspired to create a black and white variation of a raw vegan snack treat that I have in my repertoire. These are so indulgent and easy to make, and I sometimes make a larger batch to save in the freezer to always have an afternoon snack handy when the little one is running on fumes after a long day at the kinder garden.

For all of you with crazy sugar-cravings, these are a lifesaver to have in the cupboards.

Bon Appetit!! <3
