Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Funny enough, I think I have eaten the same breakfast for about 15 years…..The Smoothie! Does anyone else have their “go-to” breakfast or is it just me?! 🙂 The fun thing about the smoothie is that you can add pretty much anything from the refrigerator and come up with a healthy yet fun concoction! Recently while traveling on the road and at home, I have been making a “Smoothie Bowl” and L-O-V-I-N-G it! It’s really the same way I’ve been preparing my smoothie, but now I get to add toppings (which reminds me of eating a banana split as a kid with all sorts of yumminess piled on!)

I’m pretty sure this Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl is the prettiest one I ever did see! That’s probably because it is close to the color Pink. If it’s PINK….I love it!! 😉 The Pitaya, also known as the Dragon Fruit, is from the cactus family. It is indigenous to Central America but is also grown and exported from several Southeast Asian countries, such as Thailand and Vietnam.

Dragon Fruits have a surprising number of phytonutrients. Rich in antioxidants, they contain vitamin C (equivalent to 10 percent of the daily value), polyunsaturated (good) fatty acids, and several B vitamins for carbohydrate metabolism, as well as carotene and protein.

Dragon Fruit is a little bit on the expensive side! But, I have found that if you buy it in the frozen section of your grocery store, you can get it for a better deal. Keep reading below for this bright, cheery tropical dragon fruit smoothie bowl recipe.

Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

  • 1/2 Cup Cashew Milk (could also use Coconut or Almond Milk)
  • 1/4 Cup Orange Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Dragon Fruit (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1/2 Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Pineapple
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Mango
  • Handful of Fresh Spinach (or could use Kale)
  • Toppings:
  • Blueberries
  • Sliced Bananas
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Granola

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Immediately pour into bowl and add toppings.

This is where you can get creative! You can also top the smoothie bowl with sliced bananas, strawberries, walnuts, cacao nibs, etc! The fun thing about a Smoothie Bowl is that you can enjoy this anytime of the day. You can add a little protein powder to it for an after-workout meal or have it as an afternoon snack!

Hope you enjoy!!

  1. If you ever get a chance, you should try a place in Irving at 114 & MacArthur called Vitality Bowls. It is kind of like smoothies in a bowl with toppings. A sweet family from our church owns that franchise… only one in the area from a company based in California. I bet it would give you some good ideas to try yourself! They have smoothies, too, but your post reminded me of their bowls they have.

    1. Yes! I’d love to visit Vitality sometime, Karen! Thanks for the tips! Hope y’all are doing great! Much love, H
