I love watching YouTube videos where the babies have their first taste of lemon. It’s so funny to watch their faces! They either love it or hate it. As for me— I LOVE lemon all the time! When I was pregnant with my son, I literally ate lemons like apples. I had to eventually stop because my dentist said I was ruining my teeth enamel. Needless to say, I use lemon on everything…. my water, salad dressings, smoothies… you get the picture! These Lemon Fat Bombs are a great naturally low-carb, high fat + high protein snack.

Getting enough healthy fat on a daily basis takes a bit of work, yet the results are worth it. Improved digestion, supple skin, and blazing energy all encourage me to pack in the healthy fats as I get, well, older. These lemon fat bombs, or meltaways, make a great quick afternoon snack. I should warn you—you really have to like lemons to like these tart treats.
- 1⁄2 cup raw cashews
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup*
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus more to taste

- Place a baking sheet lined with waxed paper in the freezer OR use silicone ice cube trays.
- In a blender or food processor, blend or process the cashews until finely ground.
