Here comes another amazing recipe from the dynamic duo, Lars and Alena from Nutriciously. These vegan coconut bliss balls taste very much like those delicious Bounty and Raffaello truffles we love so much. I used to eat lots of Bounty bars when I was a child. I loved the combination of chocolate and coconut – and I still do 😉
Treats like these are usually loaded with milk, butter, and milk chocolate. Nutriciously has recreated these delicacies, using healthier and cruelty-free ingredients, providing a rich, decadent taste. Bonus: they are gluten free.
I have blogged about Nutriciously before. This is by far my favorite vegan company, run by the husband and wife team, Lars and Alena, from Germany. Alena is a certified vegan nutritionist and she has “healthyfied” many popular and homemade meals, always balancing nutrition and incredible flavors.
Coconut Bliss Balls Recipe
You only need 4 or 5 (if you are using chocolate) ingredients. You can either make them covered in coconut and chocolate or just coconut.
Prep time is 15 minutes. After that, the coconut mixture needs to rest in the fridge for one hour before you can roll and shape your bliss balls.
How to Make Bliss Balls With Chocolate

- Coconut milk
- Shredded coconut
- Dark chocolate
- Vanilla Extract
You can make this without chocolate as well. I would prefer to make a combination of both, with and without chocolate.
How to Store Coconut Bliss Balls
Place them in a container or on a plate and leave them in the fridge. After an hour they are ready to eat. These bliss balls can be stored in the refrigerator for a week, so you could make a nice, big batch in advance and you’ll have your treats for the week.
There are many great recipes for healthy treats, not only bliss balls like the recipe I shared here, but also energy balls of many varieties. I have tasted so many and I love them. They are very easy to make and they are a wonderful combination of healthy and delicious. Treats like those may cause store bought sweets to pale in comparison.
