Raw Mojito Squares are the perfect summer dessert because they don’t require cooking and they are cool and refreshing. I love them because they are sugar-free getting all of their sweetness from stevia, so they are perfect for people on the candida diet. Raw Mojito Squares are also vegan, gluten freepaleo, rich and delicious.

Watch my video and see how easy they are to make!

If you watch until the end you will see why I really need to get a new lime juicer.

Raw Mojito Squares and raw desserts, in general, are so quick and easy to make. You can get a lot more recipes like this one in my cookbook Healthy Dairy Free Desserts.

Health Benefits of Cashews

I love adding cashews to recipes because they add an awesome buttery creaminess. I added raw cashew butter to these Raw Mojito Squares, but you could also soak cashews in water overnight and blend them into a smooth paste.

Cashews also have a ton of health benefits like:

  • Being high in oleic acid which is a healthy monounsaturated fat that is important for heart health
  • Containing magnesium which is a mineral that helps regulate nerve and muscle tone
  • Promoting bone health due to high levels of magnesium, phosphorus, and copper
  • Helping you sleep due to concentrated amounts of sleep-promoting tryptophan
