Start your day off right with a healthy and nourishing dragonfruit acai bowl,
Thank you Melissa’s Produce for sending this bounty of #FreakyFruit so that I was able to make this dragonfruit acai bowl.
An acai bowl is a thick smoothie that’s made with fruit, acai puree or powder then topped with granola, fruit, nuts, chocolate or nut butters. Store bought acai bowls taste delicious good, but they are full of added sugar. They are super easy to make at home, and you can control the ingredients, and they still taste delicious. This acai bowl has no added sugar, it’s naturally sweetened by the fruit.
Frozen banana slices and avacodo thicken up the acai bowl while the dragonfruit adds a subtle tropical fruity flavor. Spinach is always an ingredient in my acai or smoothie bowls, but if that’s not your thing, you can leave it out.
Homemade acai bowls are perfect for a quick and healthy breakfast that will keep you feeling full all morning long. Blend up a double batch and you will have breakfast for two days!
Cut the dragonfruit in half and cut one half into chunks, peel the skin off and place in a blender. Slice the other the other half of the dragonfruit to garnish your bowl - you may not need all of it.
Scoop out ¼ to ½ of the avocado and add to blender along with remaining ingredients
blend until all ingredients are combined
add to a bowl and top with your favorite smoothie garnishes such as : sliced banana, dragon fruit, granola, coconut flakes, raisins, nuts
This bowl will not be bright red in color if you use a white dragon fruit and you add spinach. For the bright red color use a red dragon fruit or add a handful of raspberries
