Luscious Lemon Coconut Slice

Our brain is an amazing organ of the human body. I love how a smell can trigger a wonderful walk down memory lane… another amazing fact that our brain is responsible for. How every time I walk past our lemon tree in our backyard, the fragrance from the lemons takes me back in time to the crisp Winter months when I would push Oliver as a very small baby in his pram around the monastery near our house in Cyprus. Lukas, his older brother, would totter along happily beside us. The grounds of the monastery are amazing. The gardens absolutely beautiful. And in the Winter time a bounty of lemon, orange, and mandarins were ready for the picking. You could smell the citrus fragrances in the air as the sun set at the end of each day…

  1. We can do dairy so I use normal condensed milk but this is my daughters favourite slice. It freezes great so is a regular lunchbox treat.
