These healthy coconut fudge truffles are a perfect dessert to serve on Christmas, or to gift your family and friends.

They’re made from scratch using coconut sugar, coconut oil and coconut milk. If you’re looking to move away from refined sugars, then coconut sugar is a good alternative.

What is coconut sugar?

Coconut sugar is the dehydrated sap of the coconut palm. It’s made by cutting the flower of a coconut palm, then collecting the sap. The sap is often mixed with water and boiled down to a syrup.

Then, it placed under heat to evaporate the water. Once dried, it is broken apart to create the granules.
