For those of you who just love incorporating coconut oil into your daily diet, or for those of you who just want another healthy way to get good stuff into your daily eating, here is an easy and convenient way to do just that!! These are very simply made, with only four ingredients and no cooking, you’ll be head over heels. If you make these and try any other flavors, please do share!!
1 Cup Coconut oil
Zest from 1 lemon
Juice from 2 lemons (use the zested lemon!)
2 Tbsp honey or other sweetener. (go natural here, NO ARTIFICIAL stuff!! I used “Ideal” natural sweetner, but Truvia, or Stevia work too! Err on the side of less honey because too much will prevent proper freezing.)
Put half your oil into a small blender or food processor, put the other half into your microwave for 10 seconds, just long enough to melt it. (Or you can warm it in a pan if you don’t want to microwave it, which possibly kills some of the health benefits of it).
Once your oil is melted, combine it, and the zested lemon and lemon juice, and sweetener/honey, blend until smooth, pour into silicon molds (I used silicon ice cube trays) and refrigerate until solid. (about 1-2 hours.) Pop them out of the molds, and store in a baggie or container in the fridge. Enjoy a few a day, but be mindful these bad boys have a LOT of calories!! One to two tablespooons a day is touted as carrying lots of health benefits. Let me know if you try these and enjoy them, or what changes you may make!
If you want to play with other flavors, I covered a few in this post. Strawberry and lime are two of my other faves!! Leave comments on some of your favorite flavors! Others have tried some incredible combos… ya’ll are geniuses! 😉
**Original recipe inspiration from here. I tweaked hers because it seemed to me to be a little too much lemon juice and too much honey, making them hard to freeze completely.**
