I don’t know about you but I love the combination of sweet and sour together. It makes the perfect balance for desserts so that it’s not overpoweringly sweet! Lemon is also such a great detox and internal cleanser for you. First thing in the morning, I always wake up to a glass of warm lemon water to clear out my system get me ready to start the day. The almonds in this recipe (being a good source of healthy fats) will fill you up with just 2-3 as a great in between meal snack. Let’s get started!
TOTAL FUN TIME: 20 minutes
2 cups organic unsweetened desiccated coconut + 1/2 cup for coating
- 4 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil
1 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup raw honey (if not vegan), pure maple syrup or rice malt syrup
zest and juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon of organic pure vanilla extract
a pinch of Himalayan (pink) salt
- Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender like Vitamix or Froothie until a thick doughy consistency is reached.
- Roll into palm size balls and cover with the extra desiccated coconut.
- Place in fridge for about 30 minutes and your lemon truffles are ready! (Or if you can’t wait, eat them straight away!)
Happy Clean Eating!
