Raw Berry-Nut Treats

This is a great treat that is packed full of fruit and protein for kids of all ages big and little. They can be cut into squares or even shapes you desire with a cookie cutter. I found this recipe this week and tweaked it to our family's preference.
1 1/2 cups raw cashews ( can use almonds to or a mix of both-consistency will be nuttier)
2 cups strawberries
1/4 cup rasperries
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup coconut butter
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

- Soak the cashews at least 6-12 hours in water. Drain then rinse well.
- Add the cashews to a food processor and blend well. A few minutes will be fine, scrape down sides and blend again. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again several minutes.
-Pour into a 9x13 pan and place in freezer for about 2 hours.
-Cut into squares or shapes and enjoy!
-Store in freezer in air tight container.
