Kooky Cooks: Beetroot & Dragon Fruit Brownies

March 17, 2022

When mega-talented recipe creator and photographer, Anton @wholesomelivity, kindly offered to whip up a recipe using our Kooky fruit, we obviously agreed with eager anticipation! 💥

Anton’s wonderful creations are sumptuously indulgent, completely plant-based and includes many healthy elements. The icing on the cake? They are all beautifully showcased by his incandescent photography 📸




He produced these delicious Beetroot Dragon Fruit Brownies using our gently dried Dragon Fruit, not only as a decoration, but also to add a hint of ruby-hued brightness and an intense flavour to the brownies 🤤❤️‍🔥


Not only are they a treat for one's sweet tooth, they are also reassuringly healthy - with dragon fruit, beetroot and date syrup as the main sources of sugar. Nothing refined, nothing artificial, only wholesome deliciousness!
