Happy Valentines Day! This year as my husband and I are on the elimination diet, I sadly could not make chocolate covered strawberries. Instead I have come up with a recipe to make coconut covered strawberries!Now this isn't just coconut sprinkled over my strawberries...this is a recipe to make a coconut dip that can be turned into bars, balls and fudge. I am excited to try it out on a few different things, so stay tuned for more recipes!
Coconut Covered Strawberries
Wash and dry strawberries, leaving the green stem on. Make sure there is no water left.
In a food processor blend coconut butter, coconut oil, honey, vanilla powder, and salt until completely blended and has a thick consistency
Dip strawberries into coconut mixture and place on parchment paper
Sprinkle with shredded coconut
Place strawberries in the fridge for at least an hour until coconut mixture has hardened
If you mixture is not thick enough after blending you can add either more coconut butter or 1/4 cup of shredded coconut to thicken.
Keep strawberries in fridge until serving to keep coconut mixture hard like white chocolate
