Coconut badam -Ladoos/Bliss Balls

Coconut bliss balls1


The recipe is super simple and takes only minutes to whip up. Just pop them in the freezer overnight and you’ll have on-the-go treats ready for you all week long.

Make this coconut-almond and whip together in jaggery syrup -stuffed snacks —stat. Rolled in shredded coconut, these decadent truffles are a healthy snack disguised as dessert.

These almond and coconut bliss balls are great as snack when you craving something sweet.

Preparation time- 10 minutes
Cooking time-25-30 minutes
Yields-10-12 ladoos (depends on the size of ladoos)


  • Grated fresh coconut-1cups (tightly packed)
  • Whole badam/almond-1/2cup
  • Powdered jaggery/brown sugar-1/2cup
  • Cardamom powder-1/2tsp

For garnishing:

  • Desiccated coconut-for rolling

  • Powder the almond to course in a blender/mixer and set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan add powdered Jaggery and 3-4tbsp of water and cook on a medium high flame until the Jaggery completely melts.

  • Now reduce the flame to low and add grated coconut, almond powder one after the other stirring continuously to make sure no lumps are formed.
  • Continue to cook on the medium low flame, stirring in between until all the moisture evaporates and starts leaving the sides of the pan.

  • Once the moisture evaporates, stir in cardamom powder and turn off the flame and allow the mixture to cool down.
  • Make small balls, roll each one in the desiccated coconut and serve.
  • These can be stored in a air tight container in the refrigerator up to 5-6days. (if using dry coconut it can be stored for long)

  • I love to retain the skin of almond so used whole ones, feel free to use blanched almonds or even store bought almond meal can be used.
  • Fresh coconut can be replaced with Frozen/desiccated coconut.
  • Sweetness can be personalised as per the taste.
