Vegan Frozen Strawberry Bars
In summer we prefer to spend our home office on the balcony. With an iced coffee on our right, a snack on our left, and a nice view over the roofs of Berlin. Not too bad! While the temperatures are rising, we searched for a fruity, cold, and healthy snack we can enjoy in the afternoon. Preferably without too much effort and a short ingredient list.
So guess what, these frozen strawberry bars are a simple and very, very tasty answer! They are made of plant-based yogurt, fresh strawberries, and a layer of muesli, and a mix of frozen yogurt and an energy bar. Another advantage: You can prepare the bars at any time! Just allow to defrost for 30 - 60 minutes before you want to enjoy them or your friends are visiting.
barnhouse supported us with this recipe. barnhouse is a pioneer in the production of crunchy organic mueslis and is based in Bavaria. We used the Krunchy Joy Poppy-Strawberry-Lemon as the basis for our frozen strawberry bars. It's made from regional oats from partner farmers, beet sugar from German cultivation, and poppy seeds from the Upper Palatinate and Austria. It's baked with European sunflower oil instead of palm oil and doesn't need any additives or flavorings. So if you like to eat muesli, go and the barnhouse mueslis, which you can find in organic markets or online.
By the way: barnhouse has published a new recipe booklet with lots of great ideas and recipes.
