Zingy and Zesty Dragon Fruit Lemon Bars
We love an Instagram feed full of color, and Karlee Sisler Flores @oliveandartisan is absolutely no exception. What’s more, she’s also created a beautiful (in looks and taste) bake using our Dragon Fruit Powder. Also known as Pink Pitaya Flower, the lemony bars feature all the color and panache of dragon fruit.
Dragon fruit is packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and a flavor that’s like the romantic marriage of kiwi and pear. Whoever said that baked goods can’t be good for you as well as indulgent?!
Karlee created this simple bake using freshly squeezed lemons and lemon zest, with a touch of sweet vanilla to cut through the zestiness. We absolutely adore them, and we know you will too.
Add the flour one cup at a time and continue to mix on low until the mixture starts to combine.
Turn off the mixer and using a silicone spatula, fold the dough together until it forms a dough ball.
Place the dough on a 9″ x 13″ cookie sheet (at least 1 and 1/2 inches deep) or casserole dish and press it out until it covers the entire sheet.
Bake for 18 minutes.
Take out the crust but leave the oven on.
Cut into squares and enjoy!
These amazing bars can be enjoyed as a treat, as dessert or on a picnic – and if you’re planning an afternoon tea for someone special, you simply have to include these delights. However you choose to serve them, make sure you tag us @nature.restore and Karlee @oliveandartisan so that we can see!
