I had been craving a dessert like these Lemon Coconut Slices for a few months. Finally, I got the time to develop a luscious vegan version. As always, I had someone taste them because I wanted to know if it’s just me who enjoys my recipes. Well, my Italian taster absolutely loved these.
My favourite part about this dessert is its lovely balanced taste. The base is naturally sweet, thanks to the dates. I added two extra speculoos because I’m such a big fan of their rich taste. However, feel free to skip them for a healthier version of this recipe. You can also add a few drops of maple syrup to make up for their sweetness. The top layer, on the other hand, is pleasantly sour thanks to the freshly-squeezed lemon juice. Combine them and the result is just fabulous.
Oh, did I mention how easy to make these vegan coconut slices are? The only downside is you’d have to leave them in the freezer at least for an hour. If you’re like me, you know what a pain waiting for your dessert can be! Therefore, it’s best to get started as soon as possible.
They look gorgeous, I know, but you seriously need to taste them. Treat someone you love (yourself, for example) to these tempting lemon coconut slices. If you’re into vegan desserts, check out the other temptations I’ve got on the blog.
