This is more than just a smoothie … it’s a healthy Smoothie Bowl meal to eat for breakfast or lunch with a spoon instead of a straw. Each bite consists of a little bit of crunchy granola with a sampling of fresh fruit that will keep you energized for hours.
At the grocery store look in the freezer section for frozen pitaya or dragon fruit puree. Dragon fruit puree has a mild taste and goes well with other fruits.
It reminded me of a very mild kiwi and it made for a light, delicious, and gorgeously bright pink smoothie. I loved the smoothie so much, I couldn’t wait to make a smoothie bowl for breakfast the next day.
Add some of your favorite protein powder to help replenish the protein, vitamins, and minerals in your body.
Here’s what you need to make this Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl.
First, make the basic smoothie by combining these ingredients in a blender and blending until it’s smooth. Add a half-scoop of your favorite protein powder to enhance the protein content and replace the mango with a large banana, if you like:
- 1 cup chopped frozen mango
- 1 cup chopped frozen pineapple
- 1 packet of frozen pitaya (dragon fruit) puree
- 2 handfuls of baby spinach (or other green)
- 1/2 kiwi, peeled
- 1/2 cup almond milk
Next, add the smoothie to the bowl with 1/4 cup of your favorite granola (try Lemon Blueberry Granola!). Top with more granola and chopped fresh fruit of choice: strawberries, banana, kiwi, mango, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries ….
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
