Questions about Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

What does dragon fruit taste like? Dragon fruit is also known as pitaya. It’s taste and texture somewhat resembles that of a kiwi fruit but the flavour is much milder. The pink dragon fruit tends to be sweeter than the white one.

How to make a smoothie bowl? Smoothie bowls can be made from frozen or fresh fruit. All ingredients are turned into a puree using a blender and then served with a selection of toppings or sprinkles such as nuts, fruit, granola, chocolate, nut butter etc. The final product is then served in a bowl as opposed to a glass.

What fruits can I use in a smoothie bowl? Fruits that are higher in fat tend to give a more creamy texture, such as bananas or avocadoes. Soft fruits tend to blend much more easily and also give a smooth finish. However, if you are using a good quality blender, you should have no problem pureeing harder, more fibrous fruits such as apples and pears.

Are smoothies healthy? Due to the amount of fruit used in a smoothie bowl, the sugar content could be considered quite high. However, replacing some of the fruits with vegetables can help to reduce the quantity of sugar. Despite this, smoothies are very nourishing and offer a variety of vitamins and minerals which are beneficial to our health.
