Strawberry Lemonade Larabar-style Recipe

Variations on Larabar-style snacks are probably one of my favorite treats to create. They are easy to make and fun to come up with new flavor combinations. The best part about this particular flavor combination is that you don’t have to wait for strawberries to be in season to make them.

Freeze-dried Strawberries

Freeze-dried fruit tends to be known as way too expensive. Rightfully so, because it usually is. So to avoid paying the excessive costs of tiny bags of freeze-dried strawberries, we like to buy the #10 cans of food storage freeze-dried fruit. We use them in trail-mix, “faux”tmeal, or just eat them plain.

These are perfect little snacks to toss in kids’ lunchboxes, as after-school snacks, hiking/camping snacks, or when you need a quick boost in energy.

They are best stored in the fridge, but they can certainly handle being at room temperature for a few hours if you need to take them with you. They just tend to get a little softer as a result.

Strawberry Lemonade Bites

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Yields: 24 Bites

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups Raw, Unsalted Cashews

10 Medjool Dates, pitted

1 cup Freeze-Dried Strawberries

1/8 tsp Salt

1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Zest of 1/2 Small Lemon (optional, but highly recommended)

Extra Water, if needed

Directions

1In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, add the cashews, dates (make sure you've remove ALL pits), strawberries, and salt.

2Pulse until the mixture is crumbly and the cashews have been chopped up into crumbs.

3While still running the food processor, add the vanilla extract and the lemon juice. The mixture should combine and be easy to form into balls. If it is still too crumbly, add a little water (less than a teaspoon at a time) until the mixture is moldable and holds together.

4Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the mixture and roll into smooth balls.

5Store in the refrigerator for a few weeks (if they last that long).
