Most sweet treats are sugar laden and contain refined grains, both of which leave us with next to no nutrition and a sugar low.
When we provide our body with a sweet treat that is actually full of wonderful real whole food nutrients we feel satisfied and content.
This lemon slice is a lovely healthy sweet treat to satisfy sweet cravings and provide  your body with essential nutrients to work optimally.
The good fat from the coconut provides satiety and nourishment to your brain.  The lemons aid digestion and support balance in the blood to achieve excellent energy levels.  The raw honey is full of antioxidants and enzymes to support our immune system for keeping us well over winter.
Base
3 cups of preservative free desiccated coconut
1 cup of pitted dates (soaked in hot water for 5 mins to soften)
1 tablespoon or organic vanilla paste

Topping

Juice from 4 lemons
1 tablespoon of raw honey
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
3 cups of preservative free desiccated coconut
1/4 cup of coconut oil (gently warm in pot if solid)
Make base first, blend all ingredients till well combined and sticky.  Press into a lined slice tin.  Put slice base in freezer to cool whilst you make the topping.
Place all topping ingredients in blender, blend till smooth.  Spread topping over base, pressing down with fingers until  even and smooth.  Sprinkle either with lemon zest or coconut.
Slice with a knife whilst in tin then refrigerate until hard and set.
Enjoy with a herbal tea or Kombucha
