be my squeeze? (lemon bliss balls)

who doesn’t love that sour hit you get from a squeeze of fresh lemon?

the tartness and the burst of citrus on the inside of my cheeks reminds me of the sour warheads i used to get from my primary school tuckshop.

this recipe is an ode to my childhood. also, i just had a shitload of lemons.

ingredients

100gm almond meal (i make my own, it’s easy and much cheaper)

45gm desiccated coconut (plus extra for rolling)

zest of 1 lemon

juice of 1 large or 2 small lemons (it really depends on how much zing you like)

1/2 teaspoon good quality organic vanilla extract or bean

2 tablespoons organic, locally sourced honey

method

chuck it all in a food processor. ta da (i’m so clever).

roll the mixture into balls and then coat in the extra coconut.

store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
