Coconut Lemon Slice

Most sweet treats are sugar laden and contain refined grains, both of which leave us with next to no nutrition and a sugar low. When we provide our body with a sweet treat that is actually full of wonderful real whole food nutrients we feel satisfied and content.
This coconut lemon slice is a lovely healthy sweet treat to satisfy sweet cravings and provide your body with essential nutrients to work optimally. The good fat from the coconut provides satiety and nourishment to your brain. The lemons aid digestion and support balance in the blood to achieve excellent energy levels.
