I made these right before I left for vacation last week, and I only got to try one D; but it was sooo good. I left the rest for my boyfriend to eat while I’m gone, and I got the text “Omg those lemon things r good” lol thanks Jesse. So here’s the recipe for my lemon things. They’re lemony. And they’re things.
Makes: 10 bites
- 1/4 cup dried apricots
- 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
- 1 TBSP coconut oil
Lemon Cream Pie Layer
- 1 lemon cream pie Quest protein bar
- 3 TBSP unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 6-8 lemon SweetLeaf stevia drops (or 1 stevia packet)
Soak the dried apricots in enough water to cover for 30 minutes to soften. Drain out the water. Then use a food processor or magic bullet to blend the apricots with the almond meal/flour and coconut oil. Set to the side. This will be the base.
Chop up 1 lemon cream pie Quest protein bar. Size doesn’t matter in this situation just cut. Put in a bowl with the unsweetened almond milk so the milk covers the quest bar pieces. Microwave for 1-1.5 mins, stirring every 30 seconds until the bar is melted. Let cool in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Then mix with the plain Greek yogurt and lemon SweetLeaf stevia drops (or 1 stevia packet). This is the filling.
Take your base and press approx 1/2 tbsp into the molds of a mini cupcake tray to make 10. Then take your filling and pour it on top of the bases up to the rim of the tray. Freeze 45-60 mins. Remove with a butter knife and eat!
