This is a quick little treat that has helped me feel better when I need a little pick me up. I’m craving fresh fruit right now, especially those with a touch of sour, and this smoothie bowl has hit the spot. I love the combination of all the tropical flavors thrown in with the mild flavor of Pitaya. Mixed with hemp seeds and pecans for a little protein makes it a great snack for me these days. Feel free to add some greens if you want to get those in, but my belly isn’t quite there yet. On my way to feeling better each day though! And getting closer to finding out what this little nugget is! Any guesses on whether it’s going to be pink or blue??
[recipe title= “Tropical Pitaya Smoothie Bowl” servings= “Makes 1 bowl”]The tropical combination of mango, pineapple and banana paired with the mild taste of Pitaya hits the spot every time. Sprinkled with protein rich health filled toppings makes this a perfect snack.
- 1 cup frozen mango
- ½ cup frozen pineapple
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 frozen pack of Pitaya
- ¾ cup almond milk (more or less depending on desired consistency)
note: You can use fresh fruit for some of the frozen if you want, or freeze your own fresh, however the frozen gives your bowl a thicker consistency. I measured the fruit by loosely placing in a measuring cup and stopping when first piece hit the measure I was looking for. Any milk of choice will work.
Place all smoothie ingredients into a blender and mix until well blended. Add a touch more milk if too thick and won’t blend, but you want it as thick as possible. Once blended, place in bowl and top with all the toppings and enjoy! [/recipe]
