Nut free Lemon Cheesecake Bliss Balls

This recipe is the perfect addition to a party, gathering or lunchbox.  The bliss balls can be used as a light starter or work well as a dessert with some coconut yogurt.  The balls contain high amounts of dietary fibre, a good source of magnesium and slow releasing carbohydrates.   If you are like us, and have a surplus of lemons every year grown in your garden then this lemon cheesecake bliss balls recipe will put your lemons to good use.  Each ball contains 150kcal, so we would only recommend 1-2 a day as snack as part of a healthy balanced diet.  The recipe also works well as a healthy snack for children and because they are nut free, they are great for school lunchboxes.  For more tasty bliss ball recipes please view our top 10 bliss ball recipe page.
