No Bake Chocolate lemon dream balls are raw, no-bake, paleo, and have a low carb, keto version. They will make your mouth so happy!
Delicious creamy chocolate Lemon Dream Balls are easy to make low carb & paleo treats that are raw and require no cooking.
I am officially addicted and obsessed with these raw, no-bake, vegan, chocolaty, lemony, balls.
These treats can be made paleo or low carb & keto versions depending on the sweetener of choice that is used in the recipe.
Possibly the easiest, and most yummy treat I've made yet.
Simple ingredients in these, that you may already have in your kitchen. Best of all, no oven required!
I know it sounds like an odd combination but dark chocolate and lemon together are a flavor match made in heaven!
Give it a try and I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
Lemon is naturally low in carbs and has anti-cancer properties, and chocolate contains antioxidants, so now you have two more reasons to try it.
I also love these easy keto no-bake dessert recipes.
