Dragon Fruit: Also known as pitaya, is a tropical fruit with a texture similar to kiwi fruit. This article is super helpful and talks all about dragon fruit and some of its nutritional benefits!
Frozen Banana: Using frozen banana is my best and favorite secret to making a thick smoothie bowl. By freezing your banana before blending your ingredients together, your end results are much thicker, creamier, and perfect for scooping up with a spoon.
Pineapple: The pineapple in the recipe gives a sweet boost of flavor.
Mango: Another delicious addition of fruit, the mango adds more dynamic flavor to the recipe and brightens it up with bright, sunny flavor.
Coconut Water: I used coconut water as my liquid base to bring out more summer flavors. Feel free to swap for a nut-based milk, or a splash of coconut milk instead.
