This recipe is completely Raw and Healthy. All you have to do is mix your ingredients and refrigerate. I love to put a scoop of Raw Ice Cream on the side with different types of Berries! Also I want to point out that the crust can be made with any filling. The brownie can be made separate and of course you could always use the cashew and fudge sauce for covered strawberries. So many options, the best option is what is local or on hand. Make sure your ingredients are Raw and Organic for the healthiest option.
