Hello my beautiful friends!
Today I’m going to show you how to make a delicious, BEAUTIFUL, dragonfruit smoothie bowl that will bring you so much happiness just looking at it! And of course eating! I’m talking all about pitaya!
You may have seen these bright pink spiky fruit at a specialty grocery store. I first found them on my trip to Thailand earlier this year- they are super delicious, with a white or sometimes pink fleshly inside, they are just so magical to eat.
If you don’t find yourself in Thailand, you can find these frozen pitaya packs in your local whole foods, which is what I used in this recipe. I absolutely love the bright vibrant color they make!
This super simple smoothie bowl has only fruit and coconut water, it’s super light and honestly the perfect thing to eat during warmer temperatures. You can add whatever toppings you like, I love adding shredded coconut, banana, and bee pollen. The options are endless though.
You will need a high speed blender, I use a Vitamix, but before that I was using the Nutribullet, and honestly, it always did a great job for my smoothies. I highly recommend investing in a good quality blender, as this will make all your smoothies come together in a pinch – no smoking struggling blender included.
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!
- 2 packs frozen pitaya plus packs
- ¼ cup frozen pineapple
- ¼ cup frozen mango
- 1 banana
- ¼-1/2 cup coconut water
- Bee pollen
- Coconut flakes
- Any other toppings you like!
- Place all ingredients in your high speed blender. Start with ¼ cup coconut water, and add one tablespoon at a time as needed to get the right consistency. If it's too liquidy, add more frozen fruit.
