Pittaya Watermelon Smoothie Bowl!


Hey you all! Are you ready for Summer and Smoothie Bowls? I am! Recently when I was on a trip to Phoenix, I stopped at Nektar Juice Bar and had their Pitaya Smoothie Bowl. It was such a gorgeous color of pink from the Pitaya, also know as Dragon Fruit, and it was delicious. I loved it so much, I was inspired to create my own!

I wanted ingredients to promote glowing and hydrated skin.  In the Summertime, the heat requires lots of hydration for our skin to stay plump and soft. This smoothie bowl will feed your skin from the inside out, as well as give you a daily dose of Selenium to give your thyroid vital nutrients to function its best. The selenium in this recipe comes from the chopped Brazil nuts in the topping. Just two Brazil nuts a day has your RDA of selenium! Pitaya (Dragon Fruit) is a superfruit that is a rich magenta color. You can pick up frozen smoothie packs of this fruit at your local health food store or Whole Foods Market. Pitaya is high in fiber and a good source of magnesium. A cup of watermelon in the smoothie is very hydrating and contains lycopene and vitamin C. I also added frozen cherries (which have the benefit of reducing inflammation and may reduce belly fat), coconut butter for healthy fat, and coconut water (more hydrating benefits). Here’s how you make it!

Pitaya Watermelon Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients:

1 Package of Frozen Pitaya Fruit

1 Frozen Banana (cut into thirds)

1 Cup of Frozen Watermelon (I like to cut it into chunks and have it on hand in my freezer for smoothies)

1/2 Cup of Frozen Sweet Cherries

1 Tablespoon of Coconut Butter

1/2 Cup of Coconut Water

Directions: Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender and puree. Pour into your favorite bowl, and top with blueberries, 2 chopped brazil nuts, and some coconut flakes. Enjoy!

Good Morning Gorgeous! Smoothie Bowl

Good Morning Gorgeous!!! Yes, you are a gorgeous person! Today I have a fantastic new Smoothie Bowl Recipe to share with you that will help make your insides gorgeous too, and when we are gorgeous on the inside, it naturally makes us glow outward! Wouldn’t you agree?  This smoothie is a nourishing breakfast bowl full of only real food, fiber, protein, and you are getting in a serving of greens all in an easily assimilated, highly digestible way! I am a big fan of smoothies in the morning, because our digestive system has been resting as we sleep. It is an optimal time to put a blended meal in our bodies to quickly absorb the nutrients and keep us energized throughout the morning, with just the right amount of calories. This smoothie has low sugar berries, banana and a few slices of mango. The flax helps keep you regular, the seed butter adds healthy fat and protein, and the sliced almonds add crunch!
Here is the recipe. I highly recommend you give this a try! It is such a beautiful way to start your day. The colors nourish your soul (we eat with our eyes too!) and the food nourishes your body. Make a commitment today to do this for yourself!

Have a nourishing week!
