Pink Pitaya Pancakes

I don’t know about you but I have a thing for pretty food, somehow it always puts a smile on my face!


Now let me put a smile on your face with these gluten free buckwheat pitaya pancakes.

I made them from pitaya powder(obviously), which gave them a brilliant pink color.

The pink pitaya is naturally vibrant in color, therefore it is without a doubt my choice for a natural alternative to food coloring. It is the best way of making food colorful and pretty without the use of any artificial colours.


Pitaya powder has a strong, rich pink colour which looks cute and girly when added into the pancake mixture! Who wouldn’t like that?

And if you are concerned about the taste, I assure you that you don’t have to worry at all if these pancakes are going to taste like anything but pancakes.


I layered them up with some coconut yoghurt, dragon fruit, blueberries and strawberries.

Have you ever tried using dragon fruit powder? Lately I put it in everything I make. Pink vibes always make me positive and happy.

Pitaya powder is also loaded with good-for-you nutrients and vitamins. Plus the pancakes are quick & easy to make. They will definitely brighten up your day with their color, fluffiness and deliciousness .


What do you think ? Almost too pretty to eat?

…Almost yes, because once you taste them, you won’t be able to stop!
