These tasty bites are so satisfying, refreshing, versatile & uber healthy. They’re a summer taste savior combining lime, coconut and a touch of dark chocolate. Plus they’re ‘no -bake’! You simply can’t go wrong with mixing raw Fresh Lime Juice, Coconut and one of my kitchen favourites, Hemp Seeds, then dipping into Dark Chocolate.

{If you’re curious to know more about the health benefits of Hemp Seeds, I’ve listed 5 top points below the recipe}

Did I mentioned the bites are incredibly easy to make too?

All you need is 1 bowl (food processor) to mix, 1 bowl to melt the choc for dipping , 8 ingredients in total & 10 -20 mins in the freezer for setting.

These are my one -handed, nutritious, energizing, easy-prep, go-to snacks ATM. Great to munch on the go, a treat for kids and to offer as a little snack for guests popping in. Less adjectives now and onto the recipe 😉 ~
