Power Protein Pitaya Smoothie

Print

Pitaya, or dragonfruit, is a delicious and exotic choice of fresh, juicy fruit. And because it comes frozen, you can enjoy it anytime of the year! Blend it with coconut water or juice and some frozen berries, and you have an irresistible snack. Pitaya is extremely rich in phytonutrients, vitamins C and B, helping to cleanse the body, eliminate free radicals and improving digestion too! Adding collagen protein also provides tons of benefits, including smoother skin, stronger teeth and enhanced athletic performance. And as a bonus: it’s beautiful and will make you beautiful!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Full of phytonutrients, this smoothie bowl is a great way to start your morning, afternoon, or even night! With antioxidants, vitamin C, and protein, this pitaya bowl will keep you feeling good and healthy. Topped with more vitamin rich fruit, how could you go wrong? We can't forget about the Further Food Collagen in this recipe, providing those essential protein peptides that promote bone and joint health among many other things.

Helping you eat better, feel better, naturally.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.
