Yes, I know it’s fall and we “should” be posting about a Thanksgiving casserole or spiked cider, but can’t a girl break the mold every now and then and make a Barbie Breakfast in November!? Today’s recipe is just the prettiest Pitaya Bowl topped with tasty fruits, seeds, and granola! And while it looks like something you might find on a tropical island, you can make it right in your own kitchen! I was inspired to make my own Pitaya Bowls after I went to a smoothie shop this last week with my cousins and we were drooling over our (way-too-expensive) Pitaya Bowl that was absolutely delish. I’ve been seeing dragon fruit at the local grocery for weeks now, and they’ve been calling my name like nobody’s business! So, who cares that it’s PSL season, today it’s PBL season!

***You can buy dragon fruit at your local grocery, farmer’s market, or health food store, and if they don’t have it there is always Pitaya Plus, an amazing pre-packaged frozen Pitaya mix for bowls, smoothies, and more! I was able to find this at my local Sprouts. ***

I mean, come on, how pretty does this look!? Almost too pretty to eat!
It’s so pretty it might as well be art! Time to play with your food, darlings! Call me crazy, but I swear I enjoy my food more when it’s pretty to look at! I hope you enjoy your homemade Pitaya Bowl as much as I did! xoxo
