Having tried many refined sugar alternatives I have found the Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup to have a very distinctive and enjoyable taste which I loved.

It is very versatile and can be used in many sweet and savoury dishes as an alternative to sugar and sweeteners. Knowing it is low glycemic level and is 100% natural I would use it in my healthy eating workshops, recommend it to clients and friends and family etc.

Gorgeously guilt-free, Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup is the ideal alternative to regular table sugar.

I’ve been adding it to muesli and natural yoghurt and stirring it into my coffee. It’s packed with potassium, magnesium, iron and other minerals, as well as vitamins and essential nutrients. This is a virtuous sweet treat for all those who care about their health.

Coconut Snow Balls

(makes 7)

Ingredients

8 Pitted Dates

2 Heaped Tbsp of Cacao Powder

2 Tbsp of Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup

1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract

80g of Roasted Hazelnuts

30g of Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut

 

Preheat your oven to 180c, this is for roasting your hazelnuts. Place dates and cacao powder in food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Make sure that the dates are well blended, it should result in a sticky mass. This usually moves to one side of the food processor when done. Then add the Bali Nutra coconut syrup and vanilla extract. If using vanilla essence use two teaspoons instead of one. Re-blitz this concoction in the food processor. Meanwhile put your hazelnuts in the oven to roast for 10 minutes. Once these have cooled, rub together with the palm of your hands to allow the skins to fall off. Place hazelnuts with rest of mixture to re-blend in food processor. This will take up to 4 minutes, allow stirring time in between. The nuts should be fully broken down and mix well with other ingredients.

Roll the mixture into 8 balls, roll these on a plate with shredded coconut to coat. Place in fridge and allow to set for 15-20 minutes.

 

Enjoy!

With thanks to Peanut Butter Girl and The Clever Cook for the recipe.

Coconut Syrup – Healthy Sugar Alternative

As children we all love sugar, as adults generally we still love it…but all want to cut it out! As the unhealthy consequences of consuming too much sugar and high fructose products are increasingly in the public eye, people are looking for alternatives.

Welcome to the shops and shelves…Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup! This sweetener taken directly from the coconut palm tree is both more nutritious, and lower on the glycemic index than sugar.

Unlike table sugar that undergoes a heavy refining process, our syrup is 100% natural and sustainably sourced via a two step process:

1. It is harvested on average twice a day by local farmers on the Island of Bali, who climb to the top of Coconut Tress and collect the sap. The Coconut Sap is funnelled using a coconut leaf into a dried coconut shell.

2. The sap is placed under a controlled heat and temperature until most of the water has evaporated, leaving a unique taste, with no added ingredients but retaining all natural qualities.

Natural qualities, what natural qualities?! Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup contains 17 amino acids and 10 minerals. The most notable are Calcium, Zinc, Iron and Potassium, including various fatty acids, antioxidants and polyphenols that all provide additional health benefits. The presence of the fiber called Inulin, causes slow glucose absorption and is the reason why coconut syrup has a very low glycemic index of +35. This fiber also also has prebiotic effects, helping to feed the healthy bacteria and digest the food you eat.
