Pitaya Smoothie Bowl

When I first saw this on Earthy Andy’s Instagram page, my eyes got super wide. “What was this bright pink gorgeousness??? I NEED to try and make

it!!!” Turns out, it’s such a simple thing – the only possible deterrent was finding pink pitaya. Fortunately, they had it frozen and ready to go at my local

health food store. I first made it for my kids, who were just as wide-eyed about the color, and they still request it today.

RECIPE (adapted from Earthy Andy):

1 frozen pink pitaya packet

1-2 frozen bananas*

1 cube frozen coconut milk**



Add all ingredients in a high-powered blender. I start with 1/4 cup of water to help get it going, but use as little as possible to get it that thick, ice-cream


The frozen bananas will give it an extremely creamy texture. If you want to drink this as a smoothie, use fresh bananas.

Top it with whatever you like!

*People say to use over-ripened bananas for banana bread. I freeze mine for smoothies because I don’t like banana bread.

**Freeze leftover canned coconut milk in an ice cube tray!
