Lemon, Lime and Coconut Slice

So I originally called this fudge but then realised it has no resemblance to fudge, other than it’s cut into squares and is incredibly moreish. So, for now, I shall call it a slice. The name aside it’s a pretty tasty sweet treat that’s a little too easy to eat, if that’s even a thing.

I rustled this up the other night and it went down a treat. Like everything I make it’s super easy and only has a few ingredients.This may not have butter or sugar in it but like all sweet treats it’s there to be enjoyed in moderation.

I added in the cashew butter for some extra creaminess, and boy does it deliver.

Lemon, Lime and Coconut Slice

Ingredients

1 200g clock of Creamed Coconut

3 tablespoons of Cashew Butter

2 tablespoons of Agave Syrup (Honey would also work well)

2 Lemons, juiced

1 Lime, juiced

Pinch of salt

Optional toppings: Lime zest and dessicated coconut

Method

  • Roughly chop the creamed coconut into pieces, the smaller the better.
  • Add this to a saucepan and place over a VERY low heat
  • Stir continuously until the coconut has all melted down, it should take about 5 minutes but this will depend on your individual hob.
  • Once melted add in the cashew butter, agave, lemon juice lime juice and salt.
  • Stir until everything is combined and remove from the heat.
  • Spoon into a silicone loaf tin or a regular tin lined with baking parchment and spread it around to fill the tin and make it nice and smooth on top.
  • If your going for additional toppings now’s the time to add them. I like to sprinkle it with dessicated coconut and lime zest to make it pretty.
  • Place the tin in the fridge for about 2 -3 hours until the mixture is solid and can hold it’s shape.
  • Once ready remove from the tin and cut into squares. I make 12 pieces as it is incredibly rich.

You can keep this in the fridge for up to a week, though mine has never lasted that long. You can also store this in the freezer for a standby sweet treat, perfect.

I hope you try it and love it as much as me!
