Description

Light lemony balls of heaven! This is the recipes for citrus lovers, though it’s not so lemony that those who aren’t crazy about citrus will be turned off.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (I like this brand of unsweetened shredded coconut)
  • zest from one large lemon
  • juice from one large lemon
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and blend until the nuts are well chopped and a thick “dough” starts to form, about 3-5 minutes of processing. If the ingredients are chopped into super small pieces but the dough isn’t coming together, try adding a teaspoon of water at a time (up to a tablespoon or two) to encourage everything to come together.
  2. When the ingredients are well incorporated, remove the blade from the food processor. Take 1 large tablespoon of the “dough” and roll it into a ball in between your hands. Repeat with remaining dough. Sprinkle with a little shredded coconut if desired. Keep the balls in the fridge for up to a month or in the freezer much longer.
