Friends, are you ready for a throwback? These intensely delicious energy bites are adapted from a recipe I posted way way back in 2012 for No-Bake Cookie Bars, shortly after Minimalist Baker began. #memories

This near-instant sorbet is made with simple frozen fruit, like strawberry, watermelon, and banana, and dairy-free milk or coconut water. The texture is creamy, slightly icy, and refreshing, and the taste? It’s somehow reminiscent of cotton candy.
