Dragon fruit is one of my favorite fruits! Some find the flavor pretty mild, but if you get a nice ripe dragon fruit they are actually a bit sweet and ultra-refreshing!

What Fruit Goes Well With Dragon fruit?

Because dragon fruit (pitaya) is a subtly sweet tropical fruit, it pairs well with almost all fruit, but pairs extremely well with other tropical fruits! Pineapple, banana, strawberries, mango, and kiwi taste great when paired with dragon fruit.

How To Make A Pitaya Bowl aka Dragon fruit Smoothie Bowl:

  1. Add the ingredients into the blender. Be sure not to add too much non-dairy milk, or your smoothie bowl will not be thick.
  2. Blend on medium-low setting until smooth. Take moments to scrape down the sides as you blend.
  3. Use a spatula to transfer into a bowl. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy immediately.

Best Toppings To Add To Your Dragon fruit Smoothie Bowl

I love packing my smoothie bowls with fresh fruit, granola, and as many superfoods as possible! I love having a meal that is not only eye-catching and beautiful, like this dragon fruit bowl, but also packed with tons of nutrients! Here are a few of my favorite toppings:

  • Fresh Fruit: Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries, Kiwi, Banana, and Blackberries are great options!
  • Seeds: Hemp Seeds, Ground Flax Seeds, and Chic Seeds are a great addition for extra omega3s, fiber, and protein!
  • Granola: I LOVE homemade granola. My Date-Sweetened Grainless Granola is perfect for those looking for an incredible nutrient-dense grain-free option. My Healthy Homeade Chocolate Granola, Crunchy Maple Granola, and Honey Almond Granola are also super tasty!
  • Shredded Coconut: Be sure to use organic unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Almond Butter or Peanut Butter: A drizzle of nut butter takes this bowl to a new level!
  • Agave Syrup or Honey: Add honey or agave at the very end to give the bowl an added sweetness
