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!
