Floresta Nature Donuts are more than just Instagram-worthy, they are also filled with wholesome goodness. Behind each endearing animal design is a lovely backstory that combines healthy eating with care for the environment.

There is a wide variety of cute animal-themed doughnuts to choose from at Floresta Nature Donuts. Expect different animals to be featured each time you visit – it could be bite-sized bunny doughnut balls one day, and penguin ring doughnuts another.

Besides being a feast for the eyes and palate, the adorable sweet treats can also be stacked like Jenga towers for an extra dose of fun.

These multi-tier designs typically involve a smaller doughnut hole that sits perfectly on top of the round pastries.

Floresta’s doughnuts change with the seasons and are switched up for various festivities. For the Year of the Rooster, the donuts were shaped like little chicks hatching out of their eggs, coupled with simple glazed donut balls adorned with a delicate snowflake to reflect the season.

Floresta was co-founded in 2002 by a husband-wife duo who set their hearts on feeding their kids only healthy food. In their words, Floresta aims to “make everyone feel happy and rich when they eat the doughnuts, and return to their true selves”.

Floresta’s doughnuts are free of additives – the coloured glaze is made from all-natural ingredients, and the animals’ ears are roasted almonds coated in icing. They even go as far as to list out the ingredients used in their doughnuts on the official Floresta website

Even eco-warriors will be impressed by these environmentally friendly donuts. Every day, Floresta makes a fresh batch of doughnuts using ingredients sourced domestically, which reduces their carbon footprint. Floresta also tries to use as little packaging as possible to minimise their environmental impact. 

Cosy vibes in sync with nature

Floresta’s name, which means “forest” in Portuguese, is the key inspiration for its shops’ designs. The interiors tend to feature woodland themes coupled with wooden furnishings.
