8 Min Lemon Bliss Summerballs with Apricot & Coconut [Raw Vegan + No Refined Sugar]
Prep Time
8 mins
 

Is this the perfect summer vegan snack? Energy bites are commonly chocolaty (see our tasty low-fat Raw Cacao Superfoods Bites here), but in summer they can make you feel a little lethargic compared to these refreshing lemon energy balls. We didn't want them to be just lemony so we flavoured them up with summer touch of apricots and desiccated coconut. 🥥🍑

Give it a shot, all you need is a food processor and the ingredients below - and in less than 10 minutes you have a super tasty plant-based snack perfect to keep your energy levels high all day. Perfect on the go, just bring them with you in a reusable eco-friendly snack pot. ⚡️🦍

Course: Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: Modern, Plantbased, Vegan
Keyword: apricot, coconut, energy balls, energy bites, lemon, no bake, quicksnack, vegan snack
Servings: 5 balls approx.
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 dried apricots
  • 3 tablespoons desiccated coconut (plus some to roll the balls into)
  • 3 tablespoons cashews
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped dates
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients (see notes) to your food processor and blend until it forms a paste. 👩‍🍳

  2. Scoop out the paste (the best tool for zero-waste scooping is a silicon spatula!) and roll into balls (you can try new shapes like the marshmallow ones in the pic)

  3. Roll into desiccated coconut. Ready to eat or chill in the fridge and take with you in a snack pot. 😋❄️

Recipe Notes

EASILY ADJUST TO YOUR TASTE 🌟: experiment with more or less dates to regulate the sweetness, more or lemon juice if you are a lemon lover, and apricots too. The trick is to variate the ingredients in small amounts so that you can easily keep the consistency balanced and obtain a paste you can easily roll into balls. You got this! 🙌 🦍
