Smoothie bowls may look fancy, but they couldn’t be more simple to make. This Dairy Free Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl is my favorite, and it only takes 5 minutes to put together. It’s full of sweet refreshing fruits, and plenty of vitamins and antioxidants. If you’re looking for a healthy treat that feels like an indulgence, you’ll love this recipe!
The trick to getting the perfect thickness for your smoothie bowl is to add the juice a little bit at a time. Too little juice and you’ll find that your blender has a hard time doing it’s job of blending. Too much juice and your smoothie will be too watery and end up like a juice. Start with 4 ounces and work your way up, until you’ve reached a consistency that you like.
The type of blender that you use will play a large role on how creamy and smooth you’re able to get your smoothie. I’ve had this Vitamix for years, and it does an amazing job. Although it’s pricey, I use it to make so many things like soups, sauces, fruit purées and nut milks. If you’re considering a blender, Vitamix is definitely one worth considering.
I find my frozen dragon fruit and passion fruit at Whole Foods, but you can also find it in the frozen food section of other stores like Target. I use the frozen dragon fruit purée from Pataya, who also makes the frozen passion fruit pieces I uses. If you can’t find frozen, you can always purchase it fresh, and peel, dice, and freeze it yourself. I like to top my bowls with a bit more fruit such as frozen berries, more freshly chopped dragon fruit, and some edible flowers to give it a tropical, fancy vibe.
