Pitaya Protein Bowl
This thick, creamy and bright Pitaya protein bowl is packed with nutrients and makes an easy breakfast, lunch or post workout snack. There are so many ways to whip them up. Pitaya, also known as Dragon fruit is a great source of antioxidants, magnesium, fibre, active enzymes, and B vitamins. I've included protein powder to boost the protein content and to help keep you fuller for longer.
This recipe is a guide, you can use as much or as little of the ingredients listed. If you don't like something I have listed or don't have it on-hand, leave it out. Feel free to add any favourites that I didn't list. If you don't have a Pitaya or Acai pack, I would suggest using 1 cup of frozen berries. Other toppings include nuts and seeds, nut butter, yogurt, fresh fruit and fresh mint.
1 frozen pitaya pack (acai would work, as well)
1 serving Two Islands Co protein powder (I used Vanilla + Coconut)
1 cup ice
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 nectarine, finely chopped
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
1 tablespoon walnuts
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Combine all smoothie ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds. Pour into a bowl and top with toppings of choice.
