When I worked in France I discovered Daco Bello; a company specialising in nuts and dried fruit.
They have the most amazing array of clever nut mixes targeted for all your special needs whether it's for relaxation, energy or a small 'pep-up', they have you covered.
However, I must admit I mainly go for flavour and have fallen full-over obsessed with their Formule Éclat (Radiance Formula) which combines raisins, hazelnuts, goji berries and pistachios.
Here I decided to recreate their mix as I simply 'get more bang for my buck' and have more volume on hand!

PS: Be sure to tag me @balllerina_bites on Instagram so I can see your wonderful recreations.
1 cup dried raisins
3/4 cup hazelnuts
1/2 cup goji berries
1/3 cup pistachios
Preheat the oven to 160°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Spread hazelnuts and lightly roast for 3- 7 mins (making sure you watch them as they can burn easily).
Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool.
Repeat the process with the pistachios then transfer to the large bowl.
Once nuts are completely cool add raisins and goji berries and stir well.
Store in an airtight container or jar.
When do I enjoy
Each day I like to take a small container in my dance or handbag for whenever I'm feeling peckish and in need of an energy boost.
This trail mix also makes for a wonderful gift idea.
Buy some cute jars, ribbon and voilà the perfect, yummy gift!
