Ingredients

  • 1/2 pink or white dragon fruit (pitaya) scooped out
  • 1 cup frozen mango or frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen banana
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pink dragon fruit powder optional, if using white dragon fruit, to achieve pink hue
  • 1/4-1/2 cup coconut milk or almond milk optional, use as needed

Toppings:

  • vanilla yogurt
  • kiwi
  • dragon fruit
  • hemp seeds
  • bee pollen
  • edible flowers

Instructions

  1. Add pitaya, mango, banana, chia seeds, hemp seeds and dragon fruit powder (if using) to a high speed blender. Cover and blend until smooth, adding a small amount of coconut or almond milk as needed to help the mixture blend. For a thicker smoothie bowl, add as little liquid as possible. Depending on the juiciness of your dragon fruit, you may not need to add any liquid at all. For a more drinkable smoothie, add more liquid.
  2. To make a smoothie bowl as pictured, pour smoothie into a bowl and top with dots of vanilla yogurt. Drag a toothpick through the yogurt to make a swirl pattern. Add desired toppings such as kiwi, dragon fruit, hemp seeds, bee pollen and edible flowers.

Recipe Notes

I found that my smoothie did not need any additional sweetener, but if you wanted yours to taste a little sweeter, simply add a bit of honey, maple syrup or agave to taste.
