Recipe adapted from Coconut Treat
Coconut Lemon Zingers
- 1 Cup coconut oil
- Zest of one lemon
- 5 Drops Liquid stevia
- 5 drops lemon essential oil
Soften coconut oil in a glass bowl in a pot of hot water. Do NOT melt all the way to where the oil is clear and runny (It will take longer to freeze if you do, and ingredients will settle at the bottom) Just enough so you can stir it- like a runny think pudding consistency, just so you can stir it. Add lemon oil, zest and sweetener.
Mix well and place in small ice cube tray then put in fridge to cool. Store in freezer in a freezer baggie, or airtight sealed container. If you want them sweeter or more lemony you can re- melt and add more. You can can these on a candida cleanse.
