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.

Yield: 24 bites
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

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.


  • 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


  1. In 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.
  2. Pulse until the mixture is crumbly and the cashews have been chopped up into crumbs.
  3. While 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.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the mixture and roll into smooth balls.
  5. Store in the refrigerator for a few weeks (if they don’t get devoured right away).

My first two batches were made with freeze dried mixed fruit because that's what I had in my pantry. They were delicious! My most recent batches were made with just the strawberries. Equally delicious but a prettier color. Making these is so quick and easy that I always have them in the refrigerator. The hardest part is eating only one.

Can I use frozen strawberries I cut fresh and froze myself?

Unfortunately, this recipe has only been tested with freeze-dried strawberries, not fresh or frozen. I don't think it will work because there would be too much liquid and the bites would be too sticky.
