Raw mango – cashew bars!

Summer is here and everyone wants a yummy cold bite of ice cream to cool themselves off.  Sadly, it’s a myth that ice cream or even frozen yogurt cools a person. It, in fact, dehydrates you more due its sugar content and leaves you craving for more.  How do you get your ice cream fix and not put on weight, and at the same time stay hydrated?  Make some raw mango – cashew bars!
