Dark and White Raw Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Welcome to our recipe for raw vegan chocolate-covered strawberries.
This recipe is for you if you’re looking for a healthier, plant-based alternative to traditional chocolate-covered strawberries.
I had always loved the combination of chocolate and strawberries, but I wanted to create a healthier version free from processed sugars and dairy, a little bit lighter than my raw cherry and chocolate fudge.
So, I headed to the grocery store and picked up some raw cacao butter and cacao powder. I also grabbed a few other ingredients, including agave nectar and cashews, to make both a dark chocolate coating and a white chocolate coating.
Once I got home, I worked on melting the cacao butter and stirring in the cacao powder, agave, and a pinch of salt.
Then, I dipped the strawberries one by one, holding onto their tails and rotating my hand slightly to create an even coverage.
I placed each chocolate-covered strawberry on a non-stick tray and set them in the fridge to firm up.
For the white chocolate coating, I added soaked cashews, melted cacao butter, lucuma, and agave to a high-speed blender and pulsed until it became creamy.
I scooped the white chocolate into a piping bag and squeezed it over the coated strawberries.
A beautifully decorated tray of chocolate-covered strawberries that were both delicious and guilt-free. And that’s how I got the idea for this recipe.
Using just a few simple ingredients, you can create a delicious and satisfying dessert that is both sweet and creamy.
These chocolate-covered strawberries are the perfect treat to enjoy any time of year and are sure to impress even the most discerning palate. Let’s get started!
How to Make Dark and White Raw Chocolate Covered Strawberries?
- Strawberries, washed and cooled

Add agave and salt to the mixture and stir well.
Dip strawberries one at a time, holding onto their tails and rotating your hand slightly to create even coverage.
