I’ve found that the easiest way to stick to plant-based eating is to keep things simple. I take this approach with as many of my meals as possible, but especially with breakfast, since I don’t have a lot of time in the mornings. This is why I love this dragon fruit yogurt bowl. Made with a creamy cashew milk yogurt, blended dragon fruit, and very simple toppings, it’s not only simple to make, but healthy and filling.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A DRAGON FRUIT YOGURT BOWL
- Yogurt: for this recipe I used Forager unsweetened vanilla cashew yogurt, but any plant-based yogurt of your choice is great.
- Dragon Fruit (Pitaya): which I love, because this fruit is not too sweet or too tart. Fresh or frozen, it’s totally up to you.
- Agave: or maple syrup, which is totally optional, but I like to sweeten up my yogurt a bit.
- Toppings: are totally up to you, but I added granola, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds (pepitas), and hemp seeds.
HOW TO MAKE A DRAGON FRUIT YOGURT BOWL
- Purée the dragon fruit. In a food processor, purée the dragon fruit until it is smooth.
- Build your bowl. To a bowl, add the yogurt, puréed dragon fruit, agave or maple syrup, and all of your choice toppings.
DO I HAVE TO PURÉE THE DRAGON FRUIT?
Not at all. I personally like my fruit to be blended and smooth, but it’s just as good with fresh-cut dragon fruit. Not to mention, skipping on the blending will save time.
Though dragon fruit and yogurt get along fine without any extras, we’re all about added nutrients over here. So adding protein, iron, and omega fatty acids, by topping your yogurt with nuts and seeds is always a good idea. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of iron and hemp seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. But again, toppings are totally up to you.
