Dragonfruit Bites

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

Who needs artificial colours & flavours when nature provides some of the most beautiful, vibrant hues from tropical fruits like the Dragonfruit (also known as Pitaya) .  Rich in iron, magnesium, vitamin C, fibre and a host of antioxidants (particularly the red variety) these delicious fruits are abundant in the northern rivers right now.

They are delicious simply freshly cut with a squeeze of lime, but if you want to get fancy, try these easy raw bites.

Preparation Time: 30 mins

Makes: 20 Balls

We use all organic or biodynamic ingredients.


  • 1 ½ cups almonds (raw or activated)
  • 1 cup dessicated or shredded coconut
  • 1 cup coconut butter
  • 6 dates, pitted
  • 1 fresh dragonfruit, peeled and chopped
  • ½ tsp high quality salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or powder


  • 1 cup cacao butter
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 -1 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup


  1. Place all the ball ingredients in food processor and blend, scraping down regularly until well combined.
  2. Wet hands and roll mix into walnut sized balls.  Place in freezer while making the chocolate.
  3. Melt cacao butter, cacao, and honey/maple in pan over low heat, stirring regularly until melted but still thick.  Pour into a jug.
  4. Remove balls from the freezer and drizzle with chocolate.  Place back in freezer to set.


Remove from freezer and let sit for 5-10 minutes, then enjoy as an anytime, anywhere snack!
