 Recipe by Chef Liz Lovering

IngredientsChristmas Truffles e1545013485404 scaled

Makes approx 25 balls
125g Light Ricotta cheese
125g Light Cream Cheese
½ cup pineapple (fresh or canned in juice and drained), finely chopped
¼ cup mango, finely chopped
½ cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
1 ½ cups desiccated coconut (+ extra coconut for coating)

Method

In a medium bowl mix the cheeses thoroughly with a wooden spoon
Add the chopped fruit and mix well
Add enough coconut so the mixture is firm enough to mould into balls
Take teaspoons of the mix and roll into small balls (you may find that you need to firm up the mix in the fridge first)
Roll the balls in coconut and fridge until firm

Serving Suggestions and Tips

Delicious served straight from the fridge. Serve as a sweet treat at Christmas gatherings. You can change the fruit you add e.g. sultanas or chopped dates in place of cranberries
