Summer Eats- Dragon Fruit Breakfast Bowl

By August 10, 2016 No Comments

I’m someone that doesn’t eat a big breakfast in the morning. I mean really what Mom has time to eat?  The mornings usually consist of fruit and a guava green tea that I love. When it comes to my fruit faves, it’s tropical all the way. I discovered dragon fruit not too long ago, and I’m totally obsessed with it. If you haven’t seen a dragon fruit, you are missing out! Its is probably one of the coolest looking fruits around. It’s part of the cactus family, which explains why I love it so much. Us Beijos ladies and our love for anything cactus. It is hot pink on the outside, and a white and black speckled flesh on the inside. With summer mornings being hot ones, this has been on the menu in our house a lot lately. It’s fast, easy, healthy, and the kids love it!

Hint: This is a perfect brunch item. Your guests will love it! Shhh… don’t tell them how easy it is.

Dragon Fruit Breakfast Bowl

Serves: 1-2 (depending on your appetite)

Ingredients

 1 Dragonfruit
1/2 cup of assorted fruit (I used berries this time around cause that is what was in my fridge at the time. )
Melon scooper
*When picking out a dragonfruit, look for one with bright and even colored skin. Blotchy spots are a no no. It should be soft, but not mushy. Make sure your fruit is COLD. Fruit tastes so much more refreshing when it’s cold. If you are serving these bowls at a later time, just assemble and then take out right before serving. Probably best to assemble no more than an hour or two before serving.
