Servings: 20 serves
Place the strawberries, quinoa flakes, cashews, maple syrup, chia seeds, coconut oil and half the desiccated coconut into the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. You will have to stop and scrape down the inside of the bowl with a spatula a couple of times. If the mixture is struggling to come together then add some milk of choice, 1 tsp at a time, until the mixture is smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a bowl and pop into the fridge for about an hour. This makes it easier to roll into balls.
Place the remaining coconut into a small bowl. Roll the strawberry mixture 1 tbsp at a time into balls. Roll in the leftover coconut until coated.
The strawberries do need to be frozen as using fresh fruit makes the mixture too runny and it won't set well enough to be rolled into balls.
If you only have fresh berries, you could use them and press the mixture into silicone molds and freeze instead of rolling in balls and then in coconut.
