It’s been crazy hot here. It was 95 yesterday and it’s only early June! I think we will be headed to the local outdoor swimming pool quite a bit in the coming days.
I got many wonderful comments on Facebook about my Raw Lemon “Cream” Bars. Since I equally love lemons and limes, I decided to try out that recipe with fresh pressed lime juice instead. The recipe took a little tweaking. For some reason I didn’t like the stevia mixed with lime juice so I increased the amount of coconut nectar I used. The results were sweet and yet slightly tart bars which were equally a hit with my family. Thank goodness both bars are a breeze to make because I love them both! (As a reminder the bars appear white as no added coloring has been used. Feel free to experiment with a little avocado to add in a touch of green if you would like!)
Add to Vitamix or Blender:
4 cups cashews
1 1/2 cup coconut nectar
1 cup water
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 8 limes) or 20 drops Lime essential oil
Place 2 cups of cashews and the other ingredients into the Vitamix and blend on high for 1 minute. Add in the remaining 2 cups of cashews and blend for another minute. Use a spatula to scoop the mixture into a pie pan. Freeze for 2 hours. Use a large knife to cut into individual bars. Enjoy!
