May is National Strawberry Month, & with Cinco de Mayo coming up too, these bars are the perfect treat to celebrate. A yummy almond flour crust paired with a tart & creamy strawberry lime filling… they remind me of a summertime cocktail, like a margarita or daiquiri 🍹 Shoot, if you’re feeling so inclined, add a lil splash of tequila to this recipe if you’d like lol! (I haven’t tried this so I can’t vouch for it, but I’ve got a feeling it wouldn’t be too bad 😉)

Other things about these bars that you’re sure to love? They’re naturally sweetened, made with just 9 simple healthier ingredients, & so easy to make too (you’re just mixing or blending, pouring, & then waiting for them to set… no baking necessary which is perfect for the upcoming warmer days!)

A great alternative for when you’re craving something like ice cream or cheesecake, but want something a bit lighter & refreshing 😋 Makes 9 bars
