Vegan strawberry ripe bars
Hands up who loved cherry ripe back in the day? We sure did! We’ve adapted a classic chocolate bar: vegan strawberry ripe bars! Dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free and most importantly, guilt free! Like most no-bake desserts, this is made in well under and hour. How much chocolate you want on these bars is totally up to you. Drizzle them, coat them. The choice is yours.

You are not restricted to making bars here. You could turn these into a slice, cutting into squares or roll into balls and coat or drizzle with chocolate.
What’s great about these vegan strawberry ripe bars is they aren’t too sweet! We’ve added minimal amounts of coconut sugar. Therefore, the sweetness is simply coming from the strawberries and coconut.
Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, making it an excellent immune and anti-ageing food. Did you know that strawberries are also a good source of calcium? Not to mention magnesium and phosphorous.
