Lemon Bliss Balls
You know I'm a sucker for anything citrus so here is another tasty Lemon recipe. A perfect grab-and-go snack and a great lunchbox option for the kids.
These bliss balls make the perfect healthy and tasty snack. They are free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar and are also low carb. This delicious recipe combines two of my favourite ingredients – a tasty blend of creamy coconut and zesty lemon and coconut. These Bliss Balls are a super simple easy to make no bake recipe. It literally involves placing all ingredients into a blender and rolling them into balls – Easy peasy!!
These raw bliss balls are such a good snack to have on hand. Especially when you are super busy and don’t have time to make a healthy snack and a great alternative to store-bought processed snacks. They are also a great edition to a kids lunchbox. Stella adores these and also enjoys making them with me. She loves helping me roll them into balls. The only difficult part is ensuring she’s not eating as she goes (but same applies to me too….).
I also added doTERRA lemon essential oil to these bliss balls. This addition is optional but it really takes the flavour to the next level – really amplifying the lemon-y goodness!
The lemon bliss balls freeze well, making them even easier to grab and go – that’s if you manage to keep some aside for the freezer. I actually like them straight from the freezer too. A perfect grab-and-go snack.
