Fruity frozen cream bars will soon become a favorite dessert. These bars are absolutely delicious and taste a lot like cheesecake, but they’re actually dairy free. They use all whole food, plant-based ingredients that not only offer a lot of nutrition but give us a naturally colorful dessert.
The entire recipe is free of refined sugar and can be left as-is for a traditional cheesecake bar, but it’s fun to get creative and add different ingredients like strawberries and blue spirulina like this recipe to make these bars full of flavor and color.
