Lemon and Coconut Bliss Balls 001

 

I’m always looking for new and exciting things to add to my daughters’ lunchboxes.  These Lemon and Coconut Bliss Balls are a great little healthy snack and you can whip them up in not time at all.  These are a particularly great option because they contain no nuts.

Method ...
  1. Place coconut and Corn Flakes into food processor and blend for 30 seconds (just long enough to reduce the Corn Flakes to large crumbs).
  2. Add Sweetened Condensed Milk, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla extract and process until mixture is firm and well combined.
  3. Roll into bit sized balls and then roll in extra desiccated coconut.
  4. Store in the refrigerator. This recipe will produce approx. 30 balls (depending on the size you make them) and is suitable to freeze.

 

Clever Tricks, Tips and Hints …

 

I like to use the Freedom Foods Corn Flakes as they are gluten free, wheat free, nut free and low in salt.  These can be found in the Health Food aisle at Woolworths and Coles.  They go on special quite regularly so that’s the time to pick up a few boxes.

 

If you would like an alternative to Corn Flakes you could try flaked quinoa, crushed oats or rice puffs.  Almond meal would also make a great substitute but then you probably wouldn’t be able to include these in school lunchboxes if your school has a nut free policy.  I haven’t made these Bliss Balls with any of the suggested alternative ingredients so you would need to play around with the quantities.

 

I like to use the Skim 99% Fat Free Sweetened Condensed Milk as that helps to reduce the calories/kilojoules in these Bliss Balls.

    Interesting flavour! I thought bliss balls were just a term my in laws used but it looks like it isn’t!

    • These are delicious, Lorraine! I call them Bliss Balls because they are so easy to make, healthy and the perfect snack when you’re on the go! I find one of these satisfies any craving without feeling too guilty. I’ve created lots of different varieties and will eventually share all of them here on the blog.

  2. I’ll give these a whirl, they look great and all of my kids love lemon, interestingly. The only issue will be keeping myself AWAY from them… highly addictive, I am sure.

    • Hi Seana and thanks for stopping by! I actually have quite a few different Bliss Ball recipes that I’ve created and will be adding to the blog soon. You are so right … they are highly addictive and I find it really difficult to stop at just one!

  3. I’m staying at my MIL’s place at the moment, so we’ll team up and make this recipe – looks so yummy!

  4. You had me at condensed milk! Yum.

    • Me too, Veggie Mama … and the best part is you get to scrape out the Condensed Milk tin and lick the spoon … my idea of “bliss”.

  5. Love lemon! These look perfect for a quick snack.

    • These little gems are so quick and easy to make … but they also come with a warning … HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!

  6. These look and sound delicious. Pinning them to try out soon :)

    • They are delicious … I’ve also featured quite a few “bliss ball” recipes as they make such a wonderful snack. Stay tuned as there will be loads more recipes coming soon!
