Cooling Tropical Lemon Bars

Guest recipe and blog by Cathryn Fowler: @cathryn_fowler_

Sizzling summer days + cooling tropical treats = a perfectly timed, yummy match! 

And you know what else makes the perfect pairing? Any recipe + Just Thrive Probiotic and Precision PREbiotic! These healthy tropical lemon bars happen to satisfy all the above, making them the ideal snack to grab and go for all that fun summer play.

Probiotics are all those beneficial bacteria living in your gut microbiome. Prebiotics are special forms of dietary fiber that bypass the digestive process and travel directly to your large intestine, fueling your beneficial bacteria. 

Since these bars contain both the beneficial bacteria and the fuel for the bacteria, they’re an all-in-one powerful source to keep your immune system thriving and you living your best, most health-filled life. 

And… This isn’t your average lemon bar. It’s made with a tropical, grain-free, gluten-free, and gut-supportive twist; sending you on a mini tropical vacation with each bite!


Cooling Tropical Lemon Bars

Crust Ingredients:

  • 3 cups gluten-free, grain-free cereal (I use Unsweetened Love Bird Cereal) 
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted) 

Filling Ingredients:


  1. For the crust, smash the cereal in a food processor or in a zip lock bag. 
  2. Mix the crushed cereal with coconut oil until it’s well combined and crumbly.  
  3. Line a baking dish and pour the crumbly mix into the bottom, pressing it flat. Set the dish aside and move on to make your filling. 
  4. For the filling, put 1/2 cup of filtered water into a saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin over it. Then leave it alone for about 5 minutes so that it becomes spongy or gel-like.
  5. After 5 minutes, gently warm the water-gelatin mixture on the lowest heat setting to melt, stirring the whole time.
  6. Once melted, remove from heat, add the honey, and stir together. 
  7. In a separate bowl, mix the lemon juice, lime juice, Just Thrive Precision Prebiotic, Just Thrive Probiotic, and coconut milk. 
  8. Pour the gelatin mixture into the same bowl and mix until well combined. 
  9. Pour the filling onto your crust. (You don’t have to use all the filling.) Don’t worry if some of the cereal bits from the crust float to the top. 
  10. Place the dish in the refrigerator for a minimum of four hours to set.
  11. After four hours, take the dish out, cut into squares, and enjoy!
