No-Bake Pastel Berry Bars [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




16 bars


For the Crust:

  • 2/3 cup roasted cashews
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped dates, loosely packed

For the Layers:

  • 2 cups roasted cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup strawberries, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup blueberries


  1. Place the cashews (for the crust) into a large food processor and pulse until broken down and crumbled. Add in the dates and pulse until combined and the mixture begins to form a crumbly dough.
  2. Press the crust firmly into the bottom of a parchment-lined 8 by 8-inch pan. You need to press it very thin, so really use your muscle and work it in there. Place into the freezer while you make the cream.
  3. Drain the soaked cashews and place them, along with the almond milk, agave, vanilla, and a pinch of salt, into a large, high-powered blender.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary. Transfer to a large liquid measuring cup. You should have 2 cups of cream.
  5. Place 1/2 cup of the cream into a SMALL food processor along with the strawberries. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  6. Scrape the cream over the crust and spread out evenly. Place into the refrigerator just until the top feels set, about 45-60 minutes.
  7. Spread 1 cup of the cashew cream on top of the strawberry layer and place back into the freezer until the top feels set, another 45-60 minutes.
  8. Finally, place the remaining 1/2 cup of cashew cream into the small food processor with the blueberries and blend until smooth and creamy.
  9. Spread the final layer on top and freeze until completely firm and set, about 3 hours, or overnight.
  10. Once frozen, remove from the pan, slice into squares, and serve.





Over-the-top dinners and desserts that are deceptively easy to make. Taylor is the blogger, recipe developer, photographer and general mess maker behind the blog Food Faith Fitness. Her blog aims to show that eating healthfully does not have to break the bank or equal bland and boring! It can be easy to make and totally delicious. Taylor believes in living a balanced, whole life so Food Faith Fitness also focuses on fitness/nutrition tips and working on keeping Christ at the center of daily life. However, Taylor also believes that moderation is key, so sometimes it’s ok to just go and eat a cookie! When she isn’t blogging or messing up her kitchen, Taylor leads a pretty simple life. Places that you could find her include: the gym, her Bible study or just snuggling up on the couch with husband and doggy, watching The Food Network (Chopped in particular!) Taylor also has not-so-secret obsessions with all things peanut butter, cookie dough (even better if they are together!) pink and leopard print. Keep up with her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
