So it doesn't get any easier than that, right? I used a neutral flavored coconut oil, Jarrow Organic. That let the vanilla, almond and blueberry favors not be overpowered by the coconut. You could use any oil though. If you love the coconut flavor, go ahead and use an oil that retains the coconut flavor. I also used a stevia blend for my sweetener. The recipe is an equivalent to sugar ratio. Use any sweetener you like, and feel free to adjust to taste. Yes, you can just dip your finger in or lick the spoon.
These are so good. But do keep them cold. If it is hot where you are, they will get all gooey melty pretty fast. Since they are just a few bites, no problems just gobbing them up straight from the freezer or fridge. I usually keep my coconut oil treats in the freezer for an extra cool treat. But these, I think, are best in the fridge. That way the berries are not frozen solid and more of that fresh blueberry flavor pops in your mouth.
I love that they don't stick to the cupcake papers. I love how fast these are to make. I love the healthy ingredients. What is not to love? Got my snacks for the week!
