Then add the shredded coconut and pulse until well combined. 

Roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls. 

Place the balls on a tray lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for about 30 minutes so they become firm. Serve cold.

¾ cup coconut condensed milk or plain condensed milk

Serve cool, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

½ cup maple syrup 

¼ cup coconut oil
