Last week, I wanted something sweet. Badly. But instead of running over to Sonic, I decided to make a smoothie bowl instead.
I love how pink the pitaya (dragonfruit) makes the smoothie so I often play around with ingredients just to experiment with color and taste. But I really get with it due to its many benefits such as lowered cholesterol and full of fiber and potassium.
This smoothie actually made enough for two 1 cup bowls and 1 24 oz bottle. So, naturally, I enjoyed my bowl and was glad I had treats for later.
Pitaya Strawberry Smoothie Bowl
This is a good treat if you're craving something sweet but don't want to consume a lot of calories. (Calories are based on smoothie, not bowl.)
- 1.2 cups Almond Breeze Original Almond Milk You can substitute with any other (almond) milk flavor if you prefer.
- 9.0 oz chunks of dragonfruit I prefer PitayaPlus.
- 1.3 cups frozen whole strawberries
- 1 tbsp matcha powder
- .5 scoop Quest Protein Powder - Vanilla Milkshake You can substitute with your favorite protein powder or none at all.
- 1.0 tbsp Georgia Honey Farm - Wildflower Honey This ingredient is for sweetness. Use as much as you need.
- .3 cup Kroger Vitality Trail Mix
- .1 cup Kroger Chia Seeds
Grab all of the ingredients. Also, make sure you get a measuring cup and tablespoon measurer for accuracy.
Pour the almond milk, dragonfruit, strawberries, matcha powder, and protein powder into the blender.
Drizzle the honey over the other ingredients in the blender.
Press the crush or blend setting on your blender. Let it blend for about 5 minutes, then check for smoothness. If it is still lumpy, blend for 3 more minutes. Repeat if necessary.
Pour into your cup or bowl and enjoy!
If you're making a smoothie bowl, sprinkle the trail mix and chia seeds over the smoothie and enjoy!
