Ingredients:

Vanilla Ice Cream Bars:

1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked in water for 2 hours
1 cup water
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey

What you need:

1 spiral slicer.
1 English cucumber.
8 medium strawberries, about a pint, tops removed and quartered.
2 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar.
1 and 1/3 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.
1 Tbsp of no-sugar added dijon mustard.
Tiny pinch of sea salt and black pepper.
1 lemon, for noodles and garnish.
How you make it:

Use your spiral slicer to cut your veggie noodles, set them aside in a large bowl with a paper towel at the bottom.
Simply use a magic bullet or food processor to puree the strawberries, balsamic, olive oil, mustard, and spices.
Remove the paper towel from the bottom of your bowl of cucumber noodles.
Cut your lemon in half, add the juice from one half to the bowl of cucumber noodles. Toss well.
Plate your cucumber noodles in small bowls, add a few Tbsp of the vinaigrette on top, garnish with lemon slices.
You can also toss the noodles with the vinaigrette to coat the noodles and let the mix marinate overnight.
Enjoy!
