Raw Vegan Recipes: Pink Power Pitaya Bowl

April 22, 2015
A pitaya, aka spanish for dragonfruit, is a superfruit high in Vitamins C: helps improve blood flow, strengthens immune system, lowers cholesterol, and lessens the risk of heart diseases and strokes Fiber: helps clean up your digestive system and keeps body fortified and nourished Antioxidants: protects your cells from damage and neutralizes formation of disease; also prevents the dangers of free radicals which can cause cancer and other undesirable health detriments The pitaya bowl has been my latest sweet obsession alongside their popular cousin: the acai bowl. I've been seeing pitaya bowls more often all around Los Angeles and it's so hard to resist not to buy one. My stomach says YES but my wallet says noooo haha. When you compare the color of these bowls, they’re so much more vibrant! ~ Kind of like a bright barbie pink. I usually have these for a late breakfast or dessert but you can have them at anytime of the day. It’s raw, low in calorie (if you minimize the toppings unlike me…), and beyond gorgeous in color!

Directions

* You can substitute or add as many or little toppings as you want! This is just what I added into mine 🙂
* I love Nature’s Path Organic Ancient Grains Granola with Almonds. Many granola brands sometimes contain honey so make sure to read the ingredients!
Directions:
1. Run pitaya smoothie packet under warm water for a few seconds, then cut one end and place in blender along with frozen strawberries, fresh spinach, and ¼ cup of the almond milk first. Blend for about 20 – 30 seconds, then add in the other half (¼ cup) of almond milk and blend until smooth.
2. Transfer blended pitaya into a bowl and layer on the toppings. I really hope you enjoy this healthy power-packed pitaya bowl!
