These No-Bake Strawberry Coconut Bliss Bites are loaded with dried strawberries, almonds, dates, and coconut for an easy, bite-sized and naturally sweetened snack. They are gluten free, vegan and contain no extra sugar!

Prep/Total time: 15 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1.2 ounce bag freeze dried organic strawberries
  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup medjool dates (10-12), pitted
  • 2 teaspoons water

Instructions:

  1. Soak pitted dates in hot water for about 10 minutes to soften, then drain before adding them in the next step.
  2. Combine freeze dried strawberries and dates in a food processor, pulsing until chopped and somewhat combined.  
  3. Add almonds and coconut and pulse until it is a relatively fine crumb that is moist and combined. If it seems too dry, add water (approximately 2 teaspoons) and pulse again to combine. You should be able to squeeze the mixture in your fingers and have it all stick together.
  4. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop out mixture and roll into balls. Place in a glass container or baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat. These are also freezer friendly. Enjoy!
