Have you been looking for a healthy treat that doesn’t include chocolate or cacao and is nut free? A healthy and delicious option is Lemon Bliss Balls.
With flavoured tangy lemon, tropical coconut and a hint of vanilla is a favourite treat of mine.
These are quick and easy to make with only a few ingredients. It’s a great refreshing option for an evening treat too as an alternative to many fruit or nut bases bliss balls, which often include cacao.
