Try these delightful little treats with lemon or switch it up and use orange for a creamsicle square.

Drool.

What you’ll need…

  • 2c of *unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4c of *coconut oil
  • 1/4c of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1tsp of grated lemon rind
  • 1tsp of really good vanilla (powder or extract)
  • 2tbsp of coconut nectar

Place all of the ingredients into your food processor and whiz away for about a minute… you want the mixture to appear creamy.

Press the mixture down tightly into a parchment lined loaf pan (or something similar in size) and toss it into the freezer for at least an hour…makes it easier to cut them into squares.

Remove the pan from the freezer once they’ve hardened and slice.

Note:  if you run a knife under hot water and wipe it dry, the yumminess will slice clean and smooth.

We recommend that you keep these gems in the fridge or the freezer.

SO yummy!
