Lime Coconut Slice

Raw Lime Cheescake Slice

Lime and coconut really are a match made in heaven. I’ve fallen in love with raw vegan desserts as I feel they are the healthiest version of a sugary treat, and I love that there are real, whole ingredients in them.

This slice is a family favourite. It looks absolutely beautiful and it’s not too sweet. The coconut, oat base is chewy and sweet at the same time, and the cashew and avocado cream work perfectly on top.
