Raspberry And Lemon Slice


I have been inundated with messages from people asking which food processors work well when recreating our recipes and I would really love your help with answering. If you have a moment to leave a comment on this post stating what you use and if you would recommend it, myself and many others would be very grateful. Thank you. x

Raspberry And Lemon Slice

the lemon

  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey

the raspberry

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • 150 grams fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Place the cashews for the raspberry layer into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside.
  2. Line a loaf tin with baking paper overhanging the sides for easy removal. Mine measures 19.5cm x 9.5cm.
  3. Place the lemon layer ingredients into your processor and blend until the mixture resembles a sticky crumb. Press the mixture firmly into your prepared tin.
  4. Drain the cashews and place them into your processor and blend until the mixture forms a paste. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Spoon the mixture evenly over your base and place in the freezer to set and store.
  5. Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

    Yum, this sounds delicious!

    I use the Breville Kitchen Whizz Pro and LOVE it, there’s nothing it hasn’t been able to do. I highly recommend it.

    • Fabulous!!!! Thank YOU!! I really appreciate your input.

  • Sharon

    All your recipes sound so delicious. I use a Thermomix in my kitchen. No problems at all with your recipes.

    • Fabulous!!! Thank YOU!!! I really appreciate you writing.

  • Judith

    This looks amazing – can’t wait to try it! I’m afraid I’m one of those boring Thermomix owners that raves about it … couldn’t live without it!

    • Thank YOU!!! I am sure your comment will help many others and I appreciate you taking the time to write. x

  • Crystal

    I just use a Kambrook from Kmart and it works just fine!

  • Belinda

    I have a thermomix too and it makes all your recipes a breeze 🙂

  • Donna

    I have a Vitamix. It is the best kitchen tool I have ever bought. It can handle any of the blending recipes with ease. My only complaint is that it can take a little longer to clean up the thicker blends from around the blades.

  • This looks delicious! I’m on the look out for a new food processor too as ours recently broke.

    • Hi Christina, Thank YOU! I will ask on my facebook page as well as that typically gets a good response with a variety of options. I will add the link into this post.
      We must meet one day, I don’t think there is a women in the world who needs hair help as much as I do 🙂

  • Monika

    I use the optimum 9400. The comparison between the optimum 9400 and the vitamix is just the price, check out froothie on YouTube if you want to do your own research.

  • Catherine

    I have the Magimix 3200XL and love it. Life time warranty on the motor.

  • Sarah

    I have the breville kitchen whiz pro and I love it, works really well for all your recipes, grinds everything down to a fine meal consistency. If I want a smooth silky texture I use my Russell Hobbs blender and soak the cashews etc for a little while or add a small splash of hot water and I never have any problems.

    So lovely and perfect for spring!

    Made this yesterday and took to a BBQ and it was such a hit that I am making it again today to take to another Sunday afternoon get together!! Thank you Bianca for your beautiful recipes. Bought your books a few months ago and have made several different recipes from your books and they are all exceptional well received and super yummy. They are my go to books for anything I need to make to take to any event. Just YUM YUM YUMMY!!

    • Thank YOU so much!!! I really appreciate the feedbcak on both the recipe and the books! I am rapt that you are enjoying them! Thanks again for your support, be sure to keep me posted on how you go with anything else that you try. x

  • Mary

    I have a Breville Kitchen Whizz BFP 400 and it drives me mad – the blades are not close enough to the bottom so it misses lots and everything gets stuck to the sides immediately which makes for constant stopping and starting. Would NOT recommend!

  • Update!! This link has lots of fabulous recommendations from our delightful Facebook community https://www.facebook.com/wholefoodsimply/posts/805578639518876?comment_id=806622566081150&notif_t=feed_comment

    A friend of mine posted on Facebook this morning, asking about Food Processors which reminded me I’ve been meaning to add this pic!

    I used my Flybuys points to get these Philips Food Processor & Blender. I use them both pretty much every day & they’ve been great! You just have to make sure the bases are on properly otherwise you end up with mixture everywhere…I found out the hard way on more than one occasion 😛

    • Thank YOU so much Tina!!! Very helpful!! I can testify that all of Tina’s recipes look amazing!!!! Thanks again, Bianca. x

    • Liz Berry

      i was looking at one of these, i just asked Bianca which she used.
      i might go to bigw and layby one.

  • Kat

    I have a Thermomix, and have been using it constantly for over 5 years.
    All your recipes I have tried so far Bianca have been beautiful and successful using the Thermomix. Love, love, love your books!

    • Thank YOU so much!! That is great to hear!! I really appreciate your feedback. Be sure to keep me posted on how you are going with the recipes. x

  • Caz Muldoon

    Made this last night and took to family dinner, everyone LOVED it and wanted seconds!

    • Fabulous!!! Thank YOU for the feedback Caz. I really appreciate it and I am glad the recipe was enjoyed. x

  • Jacqueline

    I’m not a massive fan of cashews, but this was actually really good. Everyone loved it and I’ve had requests to make more!
    P.S I’m not sure why the photo is sideways :/

    • It still looks great!! Thank YOU! I am very pleased to hear the slice was enjoyed, I really appreciate the feedback. x

    Hi Bianca. Do you use frozen raspberries or fresh? I suppose I could just leave the frozen ones to thaw before mixing them through.

  • Sharon Barratt

    I have a Thermomix but prior to that i just used a normal processor from big w.

    Hello. I have a breville kitchen whizz quad pro. I bought it in 2012. It is fine for chopping vegetables but not high powered enough to get fine results to make coconut butter or nut butters. Also the position of the blades cause the mixture to get pushed up the sides so you have to keep stopping it and scraping it down for even results. It is also heavy and hard to carry. I would not recommend it for recipes where you are required to chop nuts into puree a or pastes. I am also have a stick master with a base attachment from sunbeam and this is far better at chopping things –
    Plus it is lighter and cheaper. I am actually looking at buying a vitamix to replace it. As the model is circa 2012 it may have changed? Hope this helps!

    • Kat

      Replace the breville with the vitamix, not the sunbeam!

  • Jo Colclough

    I have a Vitamix that I have had for 5 years. I use it for everything, everyday and does a great job on nut butters etc. Would thoroughly recommended it!

  • Kisane Appleby

    Best ever food processor is the Cusinart – as a raw food chef ours gets a huge workout and does a great job – heaps of awesome features!

    You “can” try and use a high speed blenedr like a vitamix for food processoing tasks but to be honest a blender is for blending and a food processor is for processing – and that really is TWO very different tools x

  • Tj

    What could I substitute for cashew meal? Would almond meal work? Can’t wait to try this one this week!

    • I updated the recipe because cashew meal was discontinued!!! I hope you enjoy it. x

  • Carmel Parente

    I’m not sure why you always avoid answering this question. People want to know what YOU use. Your finished product seems much smoother and I’m guessing you use a thermo mix?
