Pineapple Coconut Balls

Pineapple Coconut Balls
These itty bitty snack balls are made with just cream cheese, pineapple and coconut - an amazing flavour combo!

They will make a brilliant healthy snack for your kids.


  • 250g block of cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp of crushed pineapple (juice strained out)
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut


Squeeze as much juice as you can out of the crushed pineapple before measuring it out.

Put cream cheese, pineapple and 1 tbsp of the coconut into a food processor. Set the rest of the coconut aside (for rolling them in).

Process until the mixture becomes smooth.

Remove from food processor and roll the mixture into little balls (if the mixture is too sloppy to roll, you may need to put it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to firm it up a bit) then roll the balls in coconut to coat them.

Put them in the fridge for about an hour to set.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days. Makes roughly 24 snack balls.


  • Pineapples aren't actually just one fruit but a collection of many flowers whose individual fruits fuse together around a central core.
  • Cheese is among the richest dietary sources of calcium, which plays an essential role in bone health.
