I love discovering new foods. Dragon Fruit has been an occasional habit of my for years, but recently I found PitayaPlus smoothie packs. These are made from a variety of Dragon Fruit that has a pink-red flesh. That makes a dragon fruit smoothie bowl the perfect summer creation.

Dragon Fruit vs Pitaya?

These names are actually used interchangeably in case you were wondering.

Pitaya is quickly becoming a favorite in my home because of the major health benefits including:

  • rich in magnesium, vitamin b2, and vitamin c
  • good source of iron
  • high in fiber
  • rich in antioxidants

Buying dragon fruit and prepping it for smoothies can be a little frustrating, so I like to use the PitayaPlus smoothie packs. These are perfect for this pitaya smoothie bowl recipe.

Maca powder is a powerful superfood for women. It helps with energy, hormones, and can even boost fertility. Adding it to a smoothie or smoothie bowl is an easy way to integrate it into your diet.

Topping smoothie bowls because a bit of a game. I like to look at the ingredients I have in my fridge and my superfood pantry and play with combinations.

For this recipe, I was going for energizing, immune boosting, and smoothie bowl toppings full of antioxidants.

Goji berries can help to stabilize blood sugar.

Chia seeds are full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

And who doesn't love bananas and blueberries?!
