Strawberries and Cream Crispy Rice Treats

A sweet and fruity twist on the classic childhood crispy rice treat! Freeze-dried strawberries make this snack or dessert extra special. And, of course… they’re vegan!


  • .5 ounces freeze-dried strawberries (half a pack from Trader Joe’s if you have one around you!)
  • 6 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 16 ounces vegan marshmallows*
  • Pinch salt
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal


  1. Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing for some overhang to more easily remove the treats once they’re set.
  2. Add your freeze-dried strawberries to a food processor and blitz until a fine powder forms. Wait a minute before removing the lid so the dust doesn’t go everywhere! Set aside.
  3. In a large pot over medium-low heat, melt your vegan butter. Once nearly melted, add your vegan marshmallows and mix until melted. Remove from the heat.
  4. Add salt and vanilla, and mix until combined.
  5. Add the crispy rice cereal and the freeze-dried strawberry dust, and mix until combined.
  6. Immediately dump the mixture into your prepared baking pan and allow to set until cool, 20-30 minutes.
  7. Cut into pieces and enjoy!


*If you’re using full-sized marshmallows, try cutting them into smaller chunks so they melt faster!
