Prep: 90 minutesTotal: 90 minutes

Quick and easy Lemon Slice made with sweetened condensed milk.


Lemon coconut base

  • 300 grams (roughly 3 cups) Digestive biscuits*, broken into pieces using your hands
  • 100 grams (1 cup) desiccated coconut
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 60 grams (1/4 cup) butter
  • 240 ml (1 cup) sweetened condensed milk
  • 23 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (roughly 1 lemon)

Lemon icing

  • 125 grams (1 cup) icing or powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Lemon zest, to decorate


  1. Line an 8-inch square pan with baking or parchment paper. Place broken biscuits into a food processor and mix until fine crumbs form. Pour biscuit crumbs into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add coconut and lemon zest and stir to combine. Heat butter in microwave until melted and smooth. 
  3. Add melted butter, sweetened condensed milk and lemon juice to biscuit mixture and quickly stir. When biscuit crumbs are completely coated, pour into your baking tin. Press down firmly using the back of a spoon to form one even layer.
  4. Place slice in the fridge for at least 1 hour to set before making the lemon icing.
  5. To make the icing, simply combine sugar, lemon juice and milk. Stir until smooth. 
  6. Pour icing over cookie base and put back in the fridge for at least another hour. To serve, sprinkle with fresh lemon zest and cut into squares. Store slice in the fridge. 


*Any sweet plain store bought biscuits will be fine such as Digestive biscuits, graham crackers or Arnotts Marie
