Gorgeous bright pink dragonfruit pitaya bowls are packed with antioxidants and are gluten free, paleo, & vegan. The recipe makes the perfect healthy snack.
Move over açaí bowls. Pitaya bowls are the new thing in healthy smoothie bowls. And smoothie bowls are the new smoothies! With their bright pink color, they are nearly as pretty as they are delicious! Chances are, you have never heard of pitaya, but it’s just another name for dragon fruit. The fruit is low calorie and packed with fiber, vitamin C, B vitamins, iron, calcium and phosphorus. It definitely earns the name “super fruit”. They are also naturally vegan, raw, paleo and gluten free.
If you’re looking for pitaya puree, I found it at my local Safeway. The brand I used was Pitaya Plus. One package of puree makes about two pitaya bowls.
If buying a Pitaya bowl is more your speed, Sidewalk Juice in San Francisco sells great ones. For a guide on where to find the best açaí and pitaya bowls in San Francisco, you should check out this great article by my girl Cynthia, of Cyn Eats. She shares humorous and beautifully-photographed accounts of her experience eating throughout San Francisco.
