Dragonfruit Smoothie: Naturally & Beautifully Pink

I love smoothies & milkshakes & bubble tea & just about any beverage you can drink through a straw.  I have never had a smoothie bowl before though, that is, using a smoothie as a base and then piling lots of goodies on top.  So, this is a conservative first attempt at The Smoothie Bowl.

What I love about using red dragon fruit is that it gives our concoction an intense hue which I rarely see in food;  it is nature’s own food colouring!

Put into a blender & blitz:

  • Smoothie21 frozen banana
  • 1/2 red dragonfruit, coarsely diced
  • 1 passionfruit pulp
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon low fat yogurt

Makes 2 small portions, if you are sharing, or 1 large glassful, if you are having it all to yourself!

For my bowl, I sprinkled some pumpkin seeds & toasted hemp seeds on top.  Younger daughter preferred hers in a glass, no seeds added.
