Cashew, Lemon & Coconut Bliss Balls
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 18
  • 1½ cup of dates (dried)
  • 1 cup raw cashew nuts
  • 1½ cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 lemon (juice & rind)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ shredded coconut
  1. Place the dates & cashew nuts in the food processor & blitz on high until fully blended into a fine crumble.
  2. Finely grate the rind of the lemon into the mixture, add the juice of the lemon, the desiccated coconut & pinch of salt, blitz again on high until the mixture in like cookie dough.
  3. This mixture is a little wet compared to some of my other truffle recipes, you may need to add more coconut depending on how juicy your lemon is.
  4. With a teaspoon roll the mixture into balls.
  5. As you are rolling the balls, have some shredded coconut in your hand & roll the shredded coconut around the ball, pressing it into the ball as you roll.
  6. Continue until all of the mixture is rolled into balls, you should make around 18 balls.
  7. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
  8. They will keep in the fridge for many weeks, so enjoy them either all at once or as a little treat here & there in the coming weeks!
