- Using a small cutter, or the top of a piping nozzle, cut a hole in the centre of each donut.
- Form each donut with your hands to make them more rounded.
- Place in the freezer while you prepare the icing.
- Melt the cacao butter and coconut butter together over a hot water bath.
- Add the cashews, vanilla, maple syrup and about 3 tbsp water (more if needed to get the mixture going) and blend until completely smooth.
- Add the melted cacao and coconut butter to the cashews and blend until combined.
- Separate the mix into 2 parts, add the strawberries and pitaya or beetroot powder to one part and blend again to combine.
- Get a large bowl, add both parts of the icing a swirl them gently.
- Remove your donuts from the freezer and dip each one in the icing. You can then sprinkle them with a little pitaya powder or coconut flour if you desire.
- Place them back in the freezer for 30 minutes to set and voila.
- They can be stored in the freezer or in an airtight container in your fridge for a few days.
