Pitaya Bowl

Pitaya (also known as dragon fruit) embodies beauty inside and out. This beautiful superfruit is high in antioxidants and has a sweet taste and crunchy taste, similar to a pear. Smoothie bowls are just thick smoothies with toppings so if you don’t have time to sit down and enjoy this bowl simply add more liquid to make an on-the-go smoothie.

Ingredients

  • ½ fresh pitaya (peeled)
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega Sport® Performance Protein
  • Topping Options :
  • Gluten-free granola (the crunchier the better)
  • 2 tsp goji berries
  • 1-2 tsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp shredded coconut
  • Fresh strawberries and banana slices

Preparation

  1. Blend all smoothie ingredients.

  2. Scrape blender as required.

  3. Add more almond milk if required. You want this smoothie to be extra thick so if you do add  more milk, do it slowly and sparingly.

  4. Add smoothie ingredients to a chilled bowl

  5. Top with your favorite toppings above (I’ll often use all of them)

  6. Enjoy!
