strawberry kisses

remember that absolute tune by nikki webster, the chick who randomly swung in on a fishing line at the olympics? no, well consider yourself lucky.

unlike the sickly sweetness of a teeny bopper soundtrack, this recipe uses dates and fresh fruit balanced with nuts and cacao to create a tasty treat that trumps it all without the sugar rush (and crash!)

ingredients

2x cups pitted dates

1/4 cup natural peanut butter

1/2 cup roughly chopped cashew nuts

3x tablespoons of raw cacao

5x large strawberries

method

this is a super sticky recipes so you will need to line a small square or rectablge baking tin with baking paper. in food processor add the dates and peanut butter and combine until you get a paste (it takes at least 5 minutes). add in the strawberries and then the cacao and blend until it’s combined and smooth. take out the blade and stir in the nuts and using a spoon that has been run under hot water, scoop the mixture into the baking tray. spread evenly and pop into the freezer overnight. the next day, you can slice it into bars or squares.

that’s it. a quick, easy, tasty and nutrient rich perfect afternoon pick me up for all those suckers who have to go back to work while i’m off to thailand tomorrow.

over and out.
