Balls are one of the best kinds of food there is.

So yummy and decadent and you can eat one in one pop. But there’s a way to make balls really healthy — and you can convince your kids to eat them, too.


  1. Put a large pot of salted water on the stove to boil.  Cut up the sweet potato (or potato if you like) - and cook until tender (about 20 minutes)

  2. Heat the Deep Fryer until hot.

  3. Mash the sweet potato until smooth.  Add the coconut milk.  Stir in the baby spinach and add the Cumin, Garlic and Salt.

  4. Roll into 4cm balls.  Place in the fridge for 20 minutes or so to firm up.

  5. Deep fry each ball for 5 - 6 minutes or until golden.

  6. Place on a paper sheet to drain, and then eat hot!

  7. Enjoy!
