Berry Cream Bars
I don’t want to toot my own horn, buuuut TOOT TOOT. That sounded like that coffee commercial with the creep guy with straggly blonde hair. Instead it’s with a creep female with straggly brown hair. So much less creepy. But for real, these are delicious. And way easier to make than you’d think.

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- Place dates in food processor and pulse to break down into pieces.
- Then add almond butter, coconut, honey, vanilla extract and salt and pulse turn on to blend until ingredients are well combined.
- Line a bread pan with parchment paper, add ingredients from the food processor and press down until even throughout. Place in freezer while finishing the rest of the ingredients.
- Scoop out the coconut cream that has settled at the top of your canned coconut milk and place in the bowl and back in the fridge.
- Place 2 teaspoons of coconut milk/water that is at the bottom of the can, into a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Add raspberries, blackberries, honey and lemon juice in the pan and mix together. Let simmer for less than 5 minutes or until the berries become just slightly soft. You don’t want a soup. Let cool.
- Now mix together the coconut cream, honey, and vanilla extract in the bowl that you placed in the fridge.
- Once the berries have cooled, finishing the layers. Add the coconut milk mixture on top of the crust, spread out evenly, then pour the berries on top, once again evenly.
- Place in the freezer for 1+ hours to harden a bit. And serve.
- *To store these, store them in the fridge. The coconut milk will melt fast.
