Lemon bliss ballsIngredient notes

Fresh lemons

Fresh, juicy lemons are the star of the show. make sure you choose organic or unwaxed lemons, and we use both the zest and and the juice of the lemons. 

Raw or roasted cashews

Cashews are the perfect nut for these light lemon bliss balls, as their soft and neutral flavour lets the lemon shine. You could use blanched almonds as a substitute. 

Desiccated coconut 

Coconut adds both sweetness and a complimentary flavour to lemon, and doubles up as the coating for these lemon bliss balls. 

Fresh dates

Dates sweeten our bliss balls and help everything stick together. Make sure you pick fresh, soft dates like these ones here. 

Coconut oil

Coconut oil adds some healthy, delicious fats into our lemon bliss balls and creates a firmer ball. Fats are great at provding long-lasting energy, making this energy balls a more sustaining snack.

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. If you have not used homegrown, organic or unwaxed lemons begin this recipe by washing your lemons well before use.
  2. Add cashews and coconut to a high speed blender and process for 60 seconds, or until fine.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and blend a further 60 seconds, or until a until dough has formed. The dough should stick together in one large ball, but not be so sticky that it sticks all over your hand when you try to roll it. Test it out. Add extra dates if the mixture doesn’t stick together, add extra coconut if its too sticky.
  4. Pour a layer of desiccated coconut onto a small plate. Use a tablespoon to measure out portions of bliss ball dough. Roll into balls, placing each ball onto the coconut and coating. Once you’ve rolled and coated each ball, transfer to an air tight container and store in the fridge.

Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
