Ahhh, Spring is in the air.
Okay, maybe not. It’s only February, it’s under 50 degrees, but I can *sense* the flowers wanting to pop up and the birds chirping. Regardless, lemon isn’t a seasonal flavor for me, so happy February. Here’s a new (healthy…shhh!) treat.
I should note that as long as they are made the way that i’ve posted them, these little babies are raw AND vegan. Weird, right? Considering I’m not a vegan, vegetarian, or raw food advocate…but seriously, how can you turn down something so sweet, tart, and tasty?
I’ll make this one super easy for you:
First do all of that (pay no attention to the dog behind the lemon..nothing to see here).
Then do this…and stick them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. AND be sure to store them in the freezer.
These are called meltaways for a reason, kids.
