Hey there... here's a raspberry lemon donut

These donuts are the result of my intense cravings for donuts in the middle of a heat wave. The combination of the flavours of raspberry and lemon make these donuts really refreshing and perfect for any hot summer day. When I made them, I didn't intend for them to be different colours. I was in a bit of a rush so I didn't mix the pink pitaya in evenly, which resulted in some lighter and darker icing. But the result of that mistake is stunning isn't it? Hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Directions for Icing:

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whip up all ingredients until the pink pitaya is evenly spread.

  2. If you want the donuts to be two different colours like in the photo (as I said in the bio this wasn't intentional ahaha). In one bowl mix 1 1/2 cup of icing sugar with 2 tsp of pink pitaya powder, 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil, and 1 tbsp coconut milk (add more gradually if needed or else it will be too runny). In another bowl mix the remainder of the ingredients to get the darker colour of icing. If it's not the colour you desire, add 1 tsp of beet crystals.
