Dragonfruit (also known as pitaya!) itself doesn’t always have a huge amount of flavour, but it looks great, contains antioxidants and B vitamins, and is lower in sugar than other tropical fruits such as mango or pineapple. It makes an amazing base to your smoothie bowls; transforming a basic recipe into a colorful, antioxidant-rich show stopper. Just take a look at that colour, aren’t you tempted to dive right in?
- 1/2 pink dragon fruit
- 1 medium frozen banana (around 100g)
- 200g frozen berries (I usually use blueberries)
- 1 tbsp oats (optional)
- 1 tsp Maca (optional)
- 1 tbsp dessicated coconut (optional)
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and thick and creamy. If your blender isn’t powerful enough to break through the frozen ingredients add a splash or two of plant milk to get it going
- Pour/spoon into a bowl and top with your favourite ingredients. I like to use raspberries, mango, kiwi, blueberries, and dessicated coconut, or granola works really well too.
