  • 1 ounce freeze dried strawberries (see notes)
  • 1 stick dairy free butter (I like Earth Balance)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons agave
  • 1 lemon, zest only


  • Add the strawberries into your food processor, being careful to check for any packets of silica (remove if you find one).  Run the food processor until the strawberries are completely pulverized.
  • Add the remaining 4 ingredients.  Run the food processor until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Transfer to a small container and refrigerate until serving time.  Texture will firm up slightly.


Be sure to purchase freeze dried strawberries, not regular dried fruit.  I like the ones sold at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.  Be sure to remove any "freshness packets."
