Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowls

This bright pink "nice cream" will have you dreaming of a tropical island vacation. This smoothie bowl is thick like ice cream, and while you might be thinking breakfast, it's a pretty amazing dessert as well. Juice bars in the US sell these as a "pitaya bowl."

Ingredients

  • 1 banana chopped and frozen
  • 1 cup mango chopped and frozen
  • 1 cup dragon fruit (pitaya) chopped and frozen
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk canned, full fat

Toppings (optional)

  • coconut
  • fresh fruit
  • nuts or nut butters
  • granola
  • chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Add the frozen fruit to a food processor. Allow to sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes to gently thaw before beginning to process.
  • Add coconut milk, and then process until very smooth and the mixture begins to fluff up.
  • Use a spoon to push down any chunks of fruit that aren't processing.
  • This works the best in my food processor if I fill the bowl about half full. Any less or too full, and some of the fruit doesn't get blended well.
  • Top with fruit, nuts, coconut, or nut butter, or just enjoy like soft serve ice cream!

Notes

*Fruit needs to be fully frozen to use for this recipe (if you want it thick like ice cream). Freeze fruit overnight to be sure it's ready to use.
