Dragon Fruit and Berry Smoothie Bowl

This Dragon Fruit and Berry Smoothie Bowl is pretty in pink! It’s thick, velvety texture is thanks to the banana a helping of oats.

Breakfast bowls

There’s something soothing about sitting in bed, still snuggled under the covers, clutching a nourishing breakfast bowl. Whether it’s porridge in winter or a smoothie bowl in summer I love bowl food in bed!

This Dragon Fruit and Berry Smoothie Bowl is not just pretty to look at, it’s good for you too! Some days it seems impossible to get enough fruit and veg into my diet but a smoothie bowl for breakfast makes it so much easier.

Frozen fruit


My favourite thing about this particular smoothie bowl is that it is super creamy, naturally sweet, packed full of vitamins and nutrients, but best of all it’s easy to make.

All you need is a blender, frozen fruit, your (plant) milk of choice and some oats. And yes, you read that right, I did say frozen fruit! Freezing fruit (or vegetables for that matter) is a great way of locking in their goodness so you don’t need to worry about them losing any of their nutritional value by being frozen.

But, there’s another reason I like to use frozen fruit in this Dragon Fruit and Berry Smoothie Bowl. By using fruit and blending on low you get a really thick consistency. This is essential if you want your fresh berries and dragon fruit to sit perfectly on top!

Dragon Fruit and Raspberry Smoothie Bowl with banana and oats

Dragon fruit

I’ve never seen frozen dragon fruit in the UK so chances are not all of the fruit going into your fruit will be frozen, but that’s OK. This recipe has been tested with fresh dragon fruit so you’re good to go!

Now I’ll admit, the first time I tried dragon fruit I was a little underwhelmed. It’s such a bold, vibrant fruit that I thought it would have a punchy flavour to match. In reality it’s a subtly sweet fruit with some floral notes. It works particularly well with raspberry but you can use a mix of berries in this smoothie if you wish.

I always like to keep some dragon fruit behind to add to the top though it’s not essential. I just like the contrast in textures between the fresh dragon fruit and the rest of the smoothie bowl. Plus, isn’t it stunning?!
