Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are best for breakfast, snacks or even dessert – especially in the summer!

One of my favorite things about smoothie bowls – other than the fact they make me feel like I’m sitting on a beach and soaking sun – is their eye-popping tropical colors.

This hot pink smoothie bowl’s color comes from dragon fruit – a “strawberry pear” indigenous to Mexico and South America. Dragon fruit is full of fiber with 7 grams in only 1 cup, plus Vitamin C, iron and magnesium.

Some studies even show that dragon fruit promotes the growth of healthy gut bacteria.

To make this plant-based tropical smoothie bowl, all you need is dragon fruit, mango chunks, banana and orange juice, plus the toppings of your choice!

Get the recipe below!

Ingredients (2 servings)

Smoothie

  • 1 banana (peeled & frozen)
  • 1 pack (100g) frozen dragon fruit
  • 1 cup mango chunks (frozen)
  • 1 cup orange juice

Toppings (optional)

  • 1 kiwi fruit (peeled & sliced)
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp. hemp seeds

Directions

  1. Combine the smoothie ingredients in a high-speed blender until the smoothie is thick and creamy.
  2. Pour the smoothie from the blender into a bowl and garnish with your favorite toppings like kiwi, unsweetened coconut flakes and hemp seeds. Enjoy!

*To save leftovers, pour the smoothie into a freezer-friendly container with an airtight lid. Place plastic wrap against the top of the smoothie and smooth out any air bubbles. Then place on the airtight lid and freeze. Do not freeze toppings with the smoothie.

**When ready to eat, remove the smoothie from the freezer and let sit for 10-15 minutes at room temperature to thaw.
