A Tropical Raw Slice Recipe by Petite Kitchen

Eleanor Ozich of Petite Kitchen packs nutrients and flavour into this summery slice

This luscious slice is made with all-natural ingredients and packed with healthy fats from the nuts and avocado. The filling is sensationally creamy and rich without being over-the-top sweet. I used raw honey in the recipe, as I adore honey and lime as a combination, although you could use brown rice syrup or pure maple to sweeten also.
