Ever since I made Lemon Coconut Body Scrub the other day...these flavors have been on my mind! Well, these healthy Lemon Coconut Truffles did the trick...
I thought these 'less sweet' truffles would be a nice complement to the Chocolate Truffles on Valentines Day as to not go into chocolate overload! :)
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut plus extra for coating
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 3 tablespoons raw honey
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- zest and juice from one lemon
Place all above ingredients in a food processor and blend for about 1 minute.
Prepare your coconut coating to roll the truffles in. Note: I added a little extra lemon zest and a sprinkle of coconut sugar as these are not too sweet...feel free to add these...it also made them pretty with a little yellow color to the outside;)
Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls and roll in coconut to coat.
Place them on a parchment lined tray and chill in the refrigerator until firm. It made about 18 truffles. Happy Valentines Day! Pair these with Chocolate Truffles and some Champagne to complete your sweet treat day!
