Pretty ‘n Pink Pitaya Smoothie

This is hands down the prettiest smoothie I’ve ever made!

It’s just so bright and vibrant that it makes any grey old day seem that bit more special. It’s impossible to be gloomy when I’m holding a glass full of bright pink awesomeness!

Pitaya Smoothie

The reason it has such an incredible colour is the pitaya – also known as dragonfruit – so it’s 100% natural. If you’ve never tried pitaya, it’s similar to a kiwi, but not as acidic.

Pitaya is not an overly sweet fruit, which is funny because since it’s so vibrant you would kind of expect a sweet-fest going on! You can add a pitted date to your if you like it sweeter, but I’ve tried both and I’m fine with it as is!

I’ve added bee pollen on top of my smoothie.

I absolutely love this superfood. It’s known to increase energy levels and decrease seasonal allergies, so for all your hay fever sufferers out there, you should definitely give these little babies a go. It’s also super high in vitamins and magnesium, and I love it!

Try and buy local bee pollen, as it’ll have the most relevant antibodies to fight off allergies.
