Tips

The presentation of a smoothie bowl is an opportunity to make it visually appealing and enticing. Use your artistic skills to arrange the toppings in an aesthetically pleasing way. Arrange sliced fruits, berries, or granola in a symmetrical or organised pattern on top of the smoothie base. You can create concentric circles, stripes, or any other design that suits your preference.

Tips

Once you have assembled your smoothie bowl with all the toppings, it is best to enjoy it right away. The freshness is at its peak when it is just prepared. As time passes, the fruits and toppings may lose their freshness and texture. Smoothie bowls are often served chilled, so they are refreshing to eat.

Questions about dragon fruit smoothie bowl

Whether it is for breakfast or a refreshing snack, you cannot go wrong with a smoothie bowl. And this dragon fruit smoothie bowl recipe is no exception. Keep reading to discover more about this cold, creamy delight.

What is a good smoothie base for dragon fruit?
In this recipe, we recommend a delightful smoothie with vanilla skyr, bananas, raspberries, and açai powder. These flavours work well together to create a refreshing smoothie base that does not steal the show from the dragon fruit topping. In addition, although pink, it serves as a neutral canvas, leaving room for the beautiful dragon fruit to shine.
What other toppings go well with dragon fruit?
Dragon fruit pairs well with a variety of toppings that complement its taste and texture. We suggest vibrant toppings such as raspberries, currants, and goji berries. However, you can also add other fresh fruits such as sliced kiwi or diced pineapple. To match the tropical notes of dragon fruit, sprinkle some shredded coconut over your smoothie bowl. If you want to add crunch, granola is always a safe choice, but you can also opt for chopped almonds and walnuts or seeds such as pumpkin, chia, or flaxseeds.
Can you make dragon fruit smoothie bowls in advance?
Yes, you can make dragon fruit smoothie bowls in advance, but it is best to enjoy them right after you make them. Smoothie bowls are meant to be served chilled, giving you that refreshing cold vibe. If you let the smoothie bowl sit for too long, it might lose its desired temperature and not be as enjoyable. However, if you need to prepare it in advance, transfer the smoothie to a sealed container and store it in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Remember to give it a quick stir before eating it.

Made with skyr, banana, raspberry, and açai

This dragon fruit smoothie bowl combines the creamy goodness of skyr with the natural sweetness of banana, the tangy freshness of raspberries, and the antioxidant power of acai. The base is where the magic begins, as the velvety skyr creates a rich and satisfying texture. Its creamy and slightly tangy profile pairs perfectly with the sweet and creamy banana, adding a luxurious smoothness to the bowl. The juicy raspberries infuse the smoothie base with vibrant flavours and a hint of tang. These little bursts of freshness complement the creaminess and add a delightful tartness to the mix. And let us not forget the açai powder. It not only lends a beautiful purple hue to the base, but also contributes a subtle earthy undertone rounding out the flavour profile.

Flavourful toppings with crunch and colour

The star of the show is the dragon fruit, also known as pitaya. It is a vibrant, refreshing fruit with a mild and subtly sweet taste. Imagine a blend of tropical flavours like kiwi, pear, and melon in one. No wonder it is a popular choice for smoothies, desserts, and fruit bowls. In its powdered form, dragon fruit has an electric pink colour, which adds a beautiful and vibrant touch when sprinkled over the smoothie bowl. Add some wholesome oats for extra substance, and sprinkle vibrant goji berries for tangy sweetness and a pop of colour. Scatter juicy currants for an extra burst of flavour, and do not forget the fresh raspberries for their delightful tartness.
