“These gorgeous smoothie bowls make a healthy breakfast, snack or light dessert. They get their vibrant color from pitaya, aka dragon fruit. Blend them up when you need a special treat that's good for you and good-looking! We call for fresh pitaya in this recipe, but if you can't find it or don't feel like fussing with it, feel free to swap in frozen cubed pitaya.”


    • ⅔ cup frozen pineapple chunks
    • 1 tablespoon light agave nectar
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup cubed fresh pink pitaya (dragon fruit), divided
    • ¼ cup chia seeds
    • ¼ cup sliced fresh strawberries
    • ¼ cup sliced banana
    • 2 tablespoons toasted unsweetened shredded coconut
    • 2 tablespoons toasted unsalted pistachios


  • 1 Combine pineapple, agave, salt and ¾ cup pitaya in a blender; puree until smooth, about 30 seconds. Stir in chia. Transfer to two bowls; chill for 15 minutes. Top each bowl with strawberries, banana, coconut, pistachios and the remaining ¼ cup pitaya.
