Cranberry, Pistachio, Coconut & Lemon Christmas Truffles

1 cup cranberries
1 cup pistachios
2 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup coconut

Method: Start by processing/blending the pistachios into an almost flour consistency. Add the cranberries, lemon juice and 1/4 a cup of coconut and continue to process. Keep blending until a smooth sticky dough forms in the blender. (You may have to scrape down the sides of the food processor a few times). When smooth remove from the blender and form into balls, size them to your preference. Roll them in the rest of the coconut and store in the fridge.
