Lemon Coconut Balls

April 3, 2017

These are up there with ridiculously easy to make recipes. I love food that comes together really quickly and you need an absolute max of 15 mins to make these Lemon Coconut Balls. And not only are they really quick to make, but they are also free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar!

Key Nutrients

Lemon – Lemons are rich in vitamin C as well as minerals magnesium, copper and potassium and the zesty sour citrus flavour acts as the perfect palate cleanser.

Almonds – Almonds are a fantastic source of monounsaturated fats and vitamin E. Almonds also contain calcium and evidence shows they can reduce cholesterol and promote antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

Coconut – Coconut oil provides a direct source of energy and offers other benefits including protection against heart disease and boosting immune health.

Recipe Notes

Essential Equipment

Food processor


Ensure the coconut oil is in liquid form when you add to the food processor. If its hard you can melt by popping into the microwave for 30 seconds.

Honey can be used as an alternative to rice malt syrup and if used this recipe needs 3-4 tbsp.

I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for approx 3/4 of a standard mug for one cup.
