Strawberry Coconut Bar

By March 5, 2015 Health No Comments

When I want sweets and don’t want to feel guilty this is what happens in our kitchen. I love fast making but whole and healthy food. Today’s bars came to be just what I wanted. This dessert  is perfect for warmer weather though. Coconut is cooling and strawberries are in the season. That means they are ripe. We try to avoid unripe fruits because it is really heavy on digestive system and creates unnecessary amma (or toxins accumulated in physiology).

Process :

Add coconut shreds to the food processor. Blend it for about 2 minutes.

Add coconut oil, honey. Blend it for a 1 minute or so.

Then add strawberries. Blend until you get even smooth texture. You could still see some tiny dots of red but it is fine. Something like this:

Spread mixture on the pan lined with baking paper to prevent sticking. Or if you have one of those fancy rubber baking/cooling dishes you can use that.

Leave it in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes then cut it the the way you like it. We choose rectangular shaped bar this time.
