Coconut, Lemon and Ginger Slice
Inspired by Pukka Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey Tea
5 medjool dates or 8 dates (soaked in hot water for 10mins)
1 cup desiccated or shredded coconut
1 cup activated almonds
1/2 cup cashews
3cm knob of fresh ginger chopped finely
1 heaped TBS melted coconut oil
Pinch of Himalayan rock salt or sea salt
3 cups desiccated or shredded coconut
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
zest and juice of two lemons (I do love lemon flavour so maybe trial as you add)
2 teaspoons melted raw honey
Place the coconut, almonds, cashew, ginger, dates and pinch of salt into your food processor, pulse at high speed until the mixture comes together. Slowly pour in coconut oil as you process on slow.
Line a tray with baking paper hanging over the sides. Press the base mixture firmly into your lined tin. Put in the freezer to firm up while you make the topping.
Place the desiccated or shredded coconut into a high powered blender. Blend until butter consistency.
Add melted raw honey and coconut oil and 1/2 the lemon zest and juice into your blender. Blend until you have a smooth butter.
Taste here as if you are not a lemon lover this may be strong enough if not add the rest of zest and lemon juice.
Blend until well combined and smooth.
Pour over the now hard base, level with the back of a spoon and place in the freezer to set. I remove the slice from the freezer after an hour, cut it into pieces and enjoy with your favourite drink. I store it in the fridge as it keeps it at the perfect firmness to eat straight away. You can store in the freezer and remove 10mins before you want to eat.
Hope you ENJOY!
