A 5'3 Perspective

Raw Lemon Cups

Leave a comment

I’m usually more of a chocolate lover when it comes to dessert, but the summer months have a tendency to making me crave something a little more tart. These luscious lemon cups have just the right combination of sweet and sour to satisfy my needs – oh and they are pretty guilt free! Thanks to Oatmeal With A Fork for this incredible recipe. Raw Lemon CupsIngredients

Crust:
¾ c. walnuts
¼ c. unsweetened coconut
5 soft dates (I used Medjool)
¼ t. salt
1 t. lemon juice
Lemon Filling:
6 T. coconut oil, softened
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. lemon juice
1 t. lemon zest
5 drops stevia, to taste

Directions

Combine the crust ingredients using a food processor. Divide evenly among 10 silicon muffin cups (or you could use one baking dish if you’d rather not pre-portion). Press down firmly, for me using the back of a spoon helped to ensure it was really packed well. Next, place the coconut oil into a small bowl and beat with a hand mixer until it becomes creamy. This took about a minute or two.  Add the rest of the lemon filling ingredients and beat until well combined. Spread the top layer onto the bottom layer. Freeze for 15 – 30 minutes until set.

For best results and texture, thaw the cups either in the fridge or on the counter for about 20 minutes before serving.

Pucker up!!
