Lemon coconut slice is a classic no-bake treat that’s always a hit at parties.

Simple and budget friendly, this homemade slice includes a delicious combination of coconut and lemon zest, layered in a tangy citrus icing. You can store in an air-tight container in the fridge or slice it up and take it to a family event. For the best results, try taking it out of the fridge 10 minutes before serving so it has a chance to soften a little.
