Dairy Free No Bake Lime Coconut Slice

A sugar-free, dairy-free lime and coconut slice

The other day we were lucky enough to get our hands on a box of market limes. At this time of hospitality closures, many restaurants and cafes haven’t been buying their normal stock quantities resulting in an over stock of many items, limes being one of them. Wholesalers and markets selling them much cheaper than normal so we thought why not support our local businesses and take some off their hands.

This recipe came straight to mind, normally made with lemons I decided to make a lime version. I have adjusted it slightly to suit and because it’s been such a popular recipe I thought I’d share it with you.

Oat Base
Filling ready to refrigerate

A sugar-free, dairy-free lime and coconut slice. Using cashew nuts to make the creamy filling you really don’t miss the dairy at all. No sugar added only sweetened with natural honey or rice malt syrup and the tangy lime juice and rind that complements so beautifully that you end up with a perfectly sweet but tangy, creamy and smooth slice. It can be kept in the fridge for up to a week to eat a little as you please or frozen for 3 months.
