Recipe Card


  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 2/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 4 1/4 cups raw cashews, soaked 4-5 hours, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut yogurt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 packets frozen dragon fruit
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds


  • Step 1

    Add pistachios, walnuts and coconut to a food processor and pulse to form an even crumb. Add dates and pulse until you have a sticky dough. Press base into a lined 8 x 8-inch pan and freeze while you make the filling.

  • Step 2

    Place cashews into a high speed blender with coconut milk, coconut yogurt and 1/4 cup maple syrup. Blend until smooth and pour onto the base. Freeze for a few hours.

  • Step 3

    To make the dragon fruit jam, place fruit and 2 tablespoons maple syrup into a small saucepan, on low, gently heat until dragon fruit has thawed. Mash the fruit with the back of a spatula. Add chia seeds, stir, pour into a jar and refrigerate for a few hours until it thickens.

  • Step 4

    Remove bars from the freezer and spread a thick layer of jam on top. Freeze for a few hours or overnight. Before serving, take it out of the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes before slicing.
