Description

Our wholesome lemon slice is a citrusy delight that is packed with zesty lemon goodness and nourishing ingredients. 


Ingredients

Units Scale

base
3 cups cashew nuts
1 1/2 cups sunflower seeds
3 cups desiccated coconut
80g date paste – see below
1/4 cup lemon juice
pinch salt

topping
1 1/2 cups cashew nuts
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 lemon, zest & juice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla paste
1 tsp ground turmeric


Instructions

  1. For the base, line a brownie tin (about 24cm x 24cm square) with baking paper. In a food processor blitz cashews and sunflower seeds until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and starts to stick together. Add the desiccated coconut and the date paste, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Press into the lined brownie tin and set aside until ready to fill. 
  2. For the topping, soak cashews in hot water until soft, about 15 minutes, drain well and pat dry with paper towels. 
  3. In a high-speed blender, place the soaked cashews, honey, coconut oil, lemon juice and vanilla then blitz until smooth. Remove and reserve a tablespoon or two of this white mixture to decorate the topping. Add ground turmeric to the remaining topping mixture in the blender and pulse until combined. Spread the yellow topping mixture over the base, smooth the surface with a spatula and then use the reserved white mixture to design a pattern of your choice. 
  4. Freeze to set for 1 hour, then remove from the freezer at least 30 minutes before slicing. Chill for up to 7 days.
