Citrus and Coconut Slice

Citrus and Coconut Slice

A delicious and nutritious raw treat that is super simple to make – nothing could be better!


1 cup Almonds or almond meal. Or you can use a mix of nuts including pistachio, brazil, hazelnuts, cashews. (not peanuts though, as they are legumes NOT NUTS)

1 ½ cups dates warmed in the microwave to soften

2 whole lemons (or other citrus)

1 ½ cups shredded coconut


  1. In a food processor with a blade attachment, blitz the nuts until fine (skip this step if you are using almond meal alone)
  2. Grate the citrus zest and add to the processor along with 3 TBSP of juice (save remaining juice if you need to add some later to help bind the slice
  3. Add the warmed dates and blitz the whole lot together until it has formed a ball. You may find that you need to stop the processor and scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl a few times while the mixture is combining.
  4. Add most of the coconut, leaving enough to press into the top of the slice, and pulse to combine. Scrape the sides again as necessary.
  5. Check that the mixture is soft and dough like to hold together and form a ball. If not add a little more lemon juice and mix.
  6. Place the mixed ingredients into a lined baking tray and press down to around 10 mm thick.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining coconut over the slice. Place a piece of cling wrap over the top and press down firmly again so the coconut will stay in place when the slice is cut into squares.
  8. This mix can also be rolled into balls which are rolled in fine coconut to coat, if preferred.
  9. Refrigerate for 1 hr before cutting in squares.
