Want to make something super quick for the kids, using freshly harvested winter limes? Follow our easy step-by-step recipe to make bites for lunches, afternoon snacks or birthday parties! Makes approx. 20–24 balls


Zest and juice of 1 medium-sized lime
½ cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups pitted dates
1 cup coconut flakes
¼ tsp vanilla essence


  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and pulse roughly to help break up ingredients. Continue to process mixture until it can be rolled together into a large ball. If the mixture is too dry, add a teaspoon of water at a time until mixture comes together.
  2. Get the kids to help roll the mixture into small balls and place on a silicone mat or a tray lined with baking paper.
