Raw and no-bake desserts are always a favourite here at Anita's. They are great for when you really don't want to turn on the oven. Usually pretty simple, raw and no-bake desserts just require you to throw a few ingredients into a blender and watch the magic happen. The hardest part is waiting for things to set. This Lemon & Blueberry Coconut Slice is perfect for a hot summer day when you want a decadent but light dessert. Made with a combination of dried & fresh fruits, nuts and nut butters it is a perfect treat for your non-dairy, non-gluten friends. Switch out the almonds in the base for some sunflower seeds and you'll have a nut free dessert as well. Beautiful. Enjoy.
Tip: While making this slice do not add anything cold to the mixture as it will harden the coconut oil & coconut butter. Make sure that the lemon juice and blueberries are at room temperature before adding. If the mixture does harden before its gets chance to be blended to a smooth consistency just let it warm up a little and continue blending until it becomes smooth.
