After many incarnations and attempts… I’ve perfected the Thermomix lemon and coconut ball. The kids scoff them, I do too, and now the recipe is here on the blog rather than scribbled on a bit of paper with many corrections and additions. I’ll never lose it again!
Recipe websites often irritate me by having lots of words and photos before the recipe, so I won’t do that to you, dear reader. Here’s the recipe!
- zest of one lemon
- juice of two lemons
- 3 tbs maple syrup
- 75g (1 cup) almond meal
- 75g cocount oil, melted
- 100g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
- 5 medjool dates, pitted
- extra coconut for rolling balls in
Peel the lemon zest off using a potato peeler.
Place zest and coconut in Thermomix and whizz for 10 seconds at speed 8, scrape down and repeat until zest is completed blended into coconut.
Add all the rest of the ingredients and blend 10 seconds at speed 6. Scrape down and repeat if necessary.
The mixture is quite soft at this stage but will firm up as the coconut oil sets. If I have time, I let the mixture firm up for 15-20 minutes at this stage.
Roll into small balls and cover in coconut, then keep in fridge.
