Useful tips for Vegan Lemon Bars

If you keep kosher, this is an excellent pareve dessert option.

Coconut cream is not the same as coconut milk. You can find the cream in most grocery stores in the Asian foods section.

There’s 2 coconut ingredients in this recipe, but it doesn’t taste coconut-y at all.

Deseed your lemons as best you can. Your Vitamix can certainly pulverize them, but they change the taste.
