No-bake lemon coconut squares ingredients

  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 125g butter
  • 250g Milk Arrowroot biscuits
  • zest of one large lemon
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1¾ cups icing sugar
  • juice of one lemon
  • 15g butter
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut


  • Grease and line a 28cm x 18cm lamington tin.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the butter and condensed milk. Stir over a gentle heat until butter has melted and is well combined.
  • Using a rolling pin or a food processor, crush the biscuits to a fine crumb.
  • Combine the biscuit crumbs, coconut and lemon zest in a large bowl. Mix together.
  • Add the warm condensed milk mixture to the biscuit crumb mix. Stir to combine.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the prepared tin. Cool in the fridge for an hour.
  • Make the icing by mixing together the icing sugar, butter and lemon juice. Add a teaspoon or two of water if needed to get to a smooth consistency.
  • Spread the icing over the top of the cold slice base and sprinkle the top with coconut. Return to the fridge to firm up.
  • Remove from the tin and cross cut the slice into squares to serve. Yum!


  • Depending on just how tart you like your sweets, from face puckering to sickly sweet, you can adjust the lemon accordingly.
