For the preparation of the coconut and ricotta balls you only need a mixer , but it is not essential.

  2. In a plate, place the rest of the coconut flour.
  3. At this point form balls and roll them in the remaining coconut flour. You can use two spoons or your hands and your ricotta and coconut sweets will be ready.

Coconut and chocolate balls and the most delicious variations

If you have leftover chocolate at home, melt it in a bain-marie and, holding the balls on a toothpick, dip them in the melted chocolate (if necessary, help yourself by letting it drip onto the surface with a teaspoon). Gently place them (without rolling them) on a sheet of baking paper and do not touch them until they have solidified .

You can also melt the chocolate (white, milk or dark, as you prefer) and add it to the mixture . They will be the most delicious chocolate and coconut balls you have ever tried!

Alternatively, instead of rolling the balls in coconut flour, you can roll them in cocoa . Or again, you can lightly toast some almonds and when you compose the balls, insert one in the center. If, on the other hand, after a children's party there are some colored sprinkles left over, you can use them to bread the balls: one of the delicious recipes that children like most!


When you go to make these no-bake coconut treats with your hands, remember to moisten them otherwise the dough will stick and it will be difficult to give it the typical round shape. If, on the other hand, you are looking for the perfect shape for your balls , you can use an ice cream scoop and you will get the desired spherical shape. Furthermore, prefer the use of a dry ricotta as the liquid that distinguishes it could change your dough making it very soft and difficult to use. In case you can't find dry ricotta, you can put it in the fridge for a couple of hours, in a bowl and placed on a strainer: the liquid will be eliminated . Finally, since these quick and easy desserts are appreciated by everyone, you can also try your hand at making a beautiful gift box and take them as a dessert when you attend dinners organized by friends or relatives.


While we doubt they're left over, these cold coconut treats can be stored in an airtight container and placed in the refrigerator for up to 1 or 2 days.
