Pitaya Power Bowl
There are so many reasons to love summer. The days get longer, our skin turns tan, we have the magnificent Pacific ocean at our fingertips...throughout the season I enjoy making smoothie bowls either for breakfast, a snack or even dessert. This Pitaya bowl is not only beautiful - I love the bright pink color of the tropical fruit - it's also loaded with nutrients that will make you feel great.
One pack of frozen Pitaya Plus Dragon Fruit puree.
8 ounces of coconut water (can be replaced with any fruit juice you prefer, or simply water)
a handful of blueberries
2 tablespoons of shredded coconut
1/3 cup of almond vanilla granola
soaked chia seeds
This recipe is for one serving, but you can easily create more servings by adding more of each ingredient.
Before you begin mixing all your ingredients, add 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds to a bowl, and add 1/4 cup of water. Stir up the seeds rather quickly for about a minute and let that sit while you make the bowl. The chia seeds will absorb the water and take on a somewhat gooey texture.
And the rest is so easy! Simply blend the dragon fruit puree with 1 cup of coconut water, or whatever juice you prefer. Once you get your smoothie consistency, poor the contents into a bowl. Slice up the banana and strawberries, add the blueberries. Add the shredded coconut, and granola. Finally add the soaked chia seeds. Now you have a finished product of a yummy, filling fruity bowl, packed with beneficial nutrients.
We carry all the ingredients that you need for this recipe at Aptos Natural foods. But this recipe is really malleable, feel free to try whatever fruit you have home that sounds good to you.
