Asian Coffee Coconut Energy Balls. These vegan tasty bites will give you the focus and energy to power through the day. They don’t require any baking!
So what makes them Asian-tasting? The secret is in the Sweet Coconut Condensed Milk. Condensed milk is commonly used in Asian desserts! It’s used as a syrup or sometimes inside the dessert. And it tastes lovely. Most of the time, the dairy-form is used but this recipe uses Coconut Condensed Milk which is vegan!
In fact, we Asians love to add it to our coffee or tea if we’re feeling fancy! That’s how this recipe was inspired. I decided to flavour these bites with Organic Traditions Focus Fuel Coffee mix with the sweet condensed milk. Their vegan coffee mix is instant and delicious especially with a yummy creamer of your choice.
What’s Special about their Coffee Mix?
“Organic Traditions Focus Fuel Coffee is an instant coffee blend with lion’s mane mushroom, adaptogens, c8 MCT and plant-based omegas. This instant coffee blend is dairy free, made with our signature coconut milk powder and provides you with an energizing, brain-nourishing formula with adaptogens and quality fats. Organic Traditions Focus Fuel Coffee support focus, memory and creativity.”
I’ve partnered with Organic Traditions for this recipe! They have kindly sponsored it and have gifted me with some ingredients that I could use to make these bites. Such as their Organic Raw Coconut Oil, Dark Chia Seeds, and Raw Shelled Almonds.

This recipe really only calls for 20 minutes of your time and a food processor! And it all depends on how fast you can roll those little balls! The coconut flakes are optional but I love them for that extra texture and nutrition.
