What is a Pitaya Bowl?
If you’re wondering what pitaya is, 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.
