Add some color and nutrients to your morning with this insta-worthy Pitaya Superfood Smoothie Bowl…then head to instagram to win the ingredients and blender to make it!
Pitaya, or dragon fruit as it’s also called, is a tropical fruit that has bright pink flesh. While hard to find fresh in the states, you can often find it frozen in health food stores. It turns whatever you mix it with bright pink, so it’s a super fun (and nutritious) way to brighten up your breakfast bowl.
This smoothie bowl is packed with superfoods –
- pitaya (dragon fruit) – high in antioxidants
- hemp seeds – complete plant-based protein + omega 3s
- chia seeds – high in protein & fiber + omega 3s
- lettuce – adds water and nutrients
- coconut – electrolytes + healthy fats that support metabolism
- maca– supports fertility + hormone health
From now until May 15th, I’ve teamed up with 5 of my favorite REAL FOOD brands so you can win the ingredients…and a blender!…to make this smoothie bowl and many more. Simply enter our Instagram contest.
One lucky winner will receive:
- A year’s worth of organic greens from Organic Girl
- A Nutribullet Pro Blender
- 5 superfood powders from Navitas Organics: matcha, maca, cacao, acai, and wheatgrass
- 5 super seeds and oils from Nutiva: coconut oil, coconut manna, hemp seeds, chia seeds, and vanilla hemp protein
- A case of Harmless Harvest coconut water
- A case of frozen dragon fruit from Pitaya Plus

Doesn’t get any sweeter than that!
