How to make lemon bliss balls

Following on from my addiction to my chocolate bliss balls I’ve been making lemon bliss balls as well.  These bliss balls taste like a lemon and coconut slice but they are guilt free snacking.  The ingredients are as simple as lemon, coconut, cashews and maple syrup.

Once again these are really easy to make. There’s no oven required which is good in the the current weather conditions.  Things are even easier if you do have a Thermomix or Cuisine Companion but a standard food processor or blender will also do the job here if you just try soaking the nuts in water beforehand to soften them up.  

Mixing the lemon bliss balls – be careful not to overmix

Just be warned, once you pop one in your mouth it’s hard to stop.
