Cocadas recipe

By: Pablo Contreras-Galeana

This recipe is the easiest one that I have ever made, it’s very simple and it doesn’t require a whole bunch of steps like the other recipes that I have written about.

You can kind of guess what cocadas are because it’s sort of just in the name, but if some of you guys don’t know what cocadas are, here’s a very short and simple explanation on what they are:

Cocadas are just shredded coconut that has been made into a ball.

It’s really just that, it isn’t that special. It’s just balled coconut.

Even though this recipe was the easiest to make, I never really liked coconut before, I don’t know why, but the flavor of it just made me sick and disgusted, but now that I am older I actually like coconut slightly more. So, this recipe sort of helped me realize that I started to like coconut a little more.

Just to let you all know, this recipe is not mine, it’s by ‘Mi Cocina Rápida – Karen’, you can look her up on YouTube, or use the link that I will put at the end of the article.

Now let’s get into the recipe:


First, here is what you are going to need:

  1. 3 cups of shredded coconut
  2. 4 egg whites
  3. Half cup of sugar

Now that you have all of your ingredients, here are the instructions:

  1. First, you are going to separate the egg yolk form the egg whites
  1. Next, In a big bowl, you are going to place the egg whites and beat them for a couple of seconds
  1. Now, you are going to add the sugar and you are going to beat just enough until the sugar dissolves and the beat it until it’s a foamy texture
  1. Next, you are going to add the shredded coconut and you are going to mix everything perfectly until the coconut is completely covered with the egg white mixture
  1. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the coconut into balls and put them on a tray with a baking sheet
  1. Lastly, you are going to bake them for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and until you see that the cocadas are golden brown

Once they are done, just enjoy 🙂
