Dragon Fruit (Pitaya) Bliss Balls

These are a bit of fun as they are so brightly coloured. The great thing about dragon fruit powder is that it is completely natural so you get all the colour, without any of the bad stuff. It is quite easy to get hold of through the internet and a little goes a long way! Just be sure to keep the pack well closed to avoid it going clumpy!

175g cashew nuts
