Lemon Coconut Fudge

Lemon Coconut Fudge - Holistic Squid While it may look like candy, this lemon coconut fudge is a power bar in disguise.

Los Angeles is a city full of celebrities and very fast-paced, career and family dedicated people. Our modern world is not very supportive of beautifully prepared meals. ‘Nourishing and Slow’ is not our mantra. This is the age of the power bar.

I have a bit of hard news to break to all of you: The world is not going to slow down any time soon. But here’s a little secret – we can adapt nourishing, slow food to a fast-forward lifestyle. So, put this better-than-a-power-bar-recipe in your current-day quiver.

Go forward. Get Real. Be Well.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Fudge Ingredients

Meyer Lemon Coconut Fudge Method

  • Melt coconut butter, coconut oil, raw honey and combine with spatula or hands.
  • Add lemon zest and lemon oil. Mix until combined.
  • Add dehydrated finely shredded coconut meat and mix until there is no standing liquid coconut oil. Add more coconut meat if the mixture is too liquid. If the mixture becomes so dry that it will not hold together, add more coconut oil. The mixture should feel and look like a thick lumpy paste.
  • Press into shaped molds (silicon molds are great) and put in freezer for approx 20 minutes or until hard. Pop out of molds and repeat – OR – You can also press a 1/8-1/4 inch thick layer of fudge onto a cookie sheet, freeze until hard and cut into squares with a pizza cutter – OR – just break apart for a rustic presentation.

    I regularly use Now brand’s Organic Lemon Oil http://www.vitaminlife.com/product-exec/product_id/40225/nm/Lemon+Oil+Organic?utm_source=shopping.com&utm_medium=cse&utm_campaign=shopping.com

    however, if you want to make this now and can’t wait to order the lemon oil, you can find Lemon Flavor from Simply Organic which is just, organic sunflower oil and lemon oil, in most health food stores

    Hi @Anora
    You could try it. I think you would need to either add more coconut butter or consider adding ground nuts or fruit or all of the above. Let us know how it turns out

    I’m confused (nothing new!). The recipe says coconut butter but the link is for Cacao butter.
    Would love to make this………. Soon!

    My dad loves lemon anything, so I’m wanting to make this for Thanksgiving (which we are also combining with Christmas this year). Any idea how long this might last if I kept it frozen until I needed it? Thanks! Can’t wait to try it!

      Hi Jillene – Thanks for your comment! I haven’t tried freezing these for an extended period of time, but I would imagine a week or two wouldn’t impact the flavor. Let us know if you try it. :)

        Yum! I made this for Thanksmas, as indicated above. After that holiday, it sat forgotten in my freezer until just after the new year–still in the same condition! It may have lost some of the flavor, but we really couldn’t taste a lot of lemon at the beginning anyway. What is the difference between Meyer lemons and lemons? Also, we could not find lemon oil in the time we needed it, so we used extract, which is probably why the flavor was light. Thanks!

          Hi Jillene, Meyer lemons have a sweeter and more floral taste than other lemons and can even have an slightly orange tint. They also have very thin skins, making them difficult to transport and store. Glad to hear it was an overall success, though!
