Method

Crust

  1. Put all the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select speed 1, turn the machine on and quickly increase to the highest speed.

  4. Blend for 45-60 seconds or until the ingredients are starting to hold together, forming a rough dough.
  5. Stop the machine and press the mixture into a lined cake tin (make sure to mould up the sides about 2cm so you can fill it with the lemon mixture).
