These gorgeous, energising lemon bliss balls are easy to make and are perfect as a healthy treat, snack or lunchbox item. This recipe is raw, vegan, paleo and gluten-free.



  • 15 Medjool dates (pits out)
  • 1.5 cups raw cashews
  • 1.5 cups blanched almonds (skinless, regular will do as well)
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 34 drops lemon essential oil (see notes)

To finish:  3 tablespoons desiccated coconut for coating


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor fitted with an S-blade. Process and mix for 1-2 minutes, stopping and scraping the sides a few times, until everything has turned into ground up, sticky mixture (see picture).
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add a few tablespoons of extra desiccated coconut into a bowl. Wet your hands slightly and scoop about a tablespoon of the mixture into your palms. Roll into a ball and dip into the coconut, pressing on each side to coat all sides evenly. Place on a tray or plate and continue with the rest of the mixture. You should get about 15 small balls.
  3. Store in an airtight container for up to weeks (in the fridge). Serving size is 1-2 balls.
