Lemon & Coconut are like a match made in heaven! Today I am sharing with you coconut truffles with a hint of doTERRA lemon essential oil. Lemon oil has a multitude of benefits including the following: • Naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion • Supports healthy respiratory function • Promotes a positive mood and cognitive ability • Helps ward off free radicals with its antioxidant benefits • Soothes an irritated throat
In this instance it just tastes amazing!! This recipe is great for avoiding processed rubbish and is gluten free, vegan friendly and refined sugar free. It does have maple syrup though so if you are following the I Quit Sugar regime you may want to substitute rice malt syrup for the maple syrup. It will still taste awesome! I don't follow any particular regime and still bake with refined sugar and dairy from time to time - especially on birthdays and special occasions - I love to cook and desserts are my speciality. We try to keep our diet on an 80-20 scale. 80% of the time we try to eat good whole foods and 20% of the time we eat what we want. I am ok with this as I think balance is good and life is for living. As a result my recipes will not always be in the clean eating realm ;-) (Edited to add that almost a year on and my views have evolved. I no longer cook with Dairy ;-) Also this video is ridiculously poor quality - I will be remaking it soon).
