  1. I just made this. I think you’d need a high-powered blender as I processed the topping ingredients and could not get them smooth despite a lot of processing. The result looked wholly different from the picture, being more greyish-white and granular. Unfortunately it was also fairly tasteless and bland (it was sweet enough though) not having enough of either the creaminess or zestiness I was hoping for. A bit of a disappointment in all considering the ingredients weren’t cheap. I can’t see myself making it again.






    1. Hi Maxine, I’m so sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy it and you had some issues along the way. This is a recipe that I first created back in 2015 and have been meaning to go back and update with better instructions in the ingredients and overall experience. It was on my list this week! So I hope you give this recipe another try because it is very delicious, and lots of people have loved it. A high-speed blender is definitely the preferred device for the topping to get it silky smooth. Some food processors are capable to get the right consistency, however not all. The grey colour would be coming from the coconut cream that you used, as they vary from brand to brand. In that case, I would add a little more turmeric but not too much to get the taste of it. It’s a fine balance. The overall flavour should still be there, I’m not sure why it turned out bland. Maybe a little more zest would have helped to get the balance right? I have updated the amount for the lemon juice as two lemons can vary in size and how much juice they produce. In any way, thank you for the feedback.

  2. Really easy recipe and I love the jump to recipe feature so thanks for that. It would be great to have a measurement for the lemon juice if poss. We have a tree at home so I often get quite small lemons. From tasting it I ended up adding the juice and zest of 4 but it took a long time to set in the freezer so I’m unsure if that ended up being too much. Didn’t seem much coconut oil to set all of that stuff! it is really nice but I’m on the fence as its still a very mild lemony flavour and I didn’t want to risk adding more lemon. I’d try that base recipe with other flavourings though also now I’ve got it and the texture is wonderful! I made the base with a mix of cashews, almonds and walnuts.






  3. It’s setting in the fridge… fingers crossed. It was so easy to make and the creamy mixture tastes sooo good without even freezing it! Thanks for sharing this with the world

  4. Hi I made the slice and the lemon top hasn’t set, maybe to much lemon juice, could I scrape it off and add more melted coconut oil?

  5. Am looking for a lemon slice that I can keep frozen and defrost portions as I need it. Does it freeze and defrost OK?

  6. This was absolutely beautiful! I used roasted almonds in the base along with the coconut and maple syrup. The topping is perfect and the turmeric gives it the lovely lemon colour. My family adored it!

  7. Made this for the first time the other day and it was amazing! The mixed nuts I used for the base was a little crumbley so I added a few more dates to ensure it would hold together really well. It came out lovely. Had a few friends over who tried them and they all loved it. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. 🙂

  8. I have made this several times now and always get good feedback. Neighbour of mine has a great producing lime tree and she kindly gives me plenty of them, so have made this with limes and it is so good. Who would know that limes are so versatile, not just good in a corona!

  9. Hi, what can I substitute the coconut oil with? I have already started making it and realise I have none in the cupboard?

  10. Googled Raw Lemon Slice and was so happy to find your website and this recipe, me and the family absolutely loved this slice, so yum and creamy!

  11. Hi there was wondering if this would work in a 20×20 tin? I don’t have 16×25 … Thanks Margi 🙂

  12. This looks ridiculous! In the best way possible!

    Thank you, am keen to create this for my Mum who is ultra fond of creamy pies. Growing up, I loved her lemon tarts though am now not at all keen to chow down on condensed cow’s milk, so this is perfect.

    Thanks again 🙂
