Dragonfruit Bowl with Walnuts and Berries

Have you seen the little packets of dragonfruit puree in your supermarket’s freezer section? I love them, and stock up whenever I can. They seem to be popular in San Francisco, and tend to sell out fast. The packets are great for smoothies (of course), but sometimes, when I can’t be bothered to set up and clean my blender, I’ll make myself a dragonfruit bowl using the thawed packets. It’s a twist on my favorite breakfast chia pudding, and comes together in a flash.

Variations

You make these bowls with just a wide range of fruit purees. Acai works great, although not a pretty as the dragonfruit. I love raspberry, strawberry, and black berry as well. In general, the berry purees are on point.

Dragonfruit Bowl Toppings

The only limit here is your imagination. I tend to use whatever I have around. Crushed berries, and miscellaneous seeds are often contenders. Something extra crunchy is essential, and you see toasted walnuts here. Think seasonal as well – I like to add torn cherries when they’re in season, or sliced figs later in the year. Also! I love puffed quinoa or other cereal on top.

Other Recipes to Make with Dragonfruit

Keep an eye out for other products made with dragon fruit. It’s such a fun ingredient to experiment with. I’ve seen dried dragonfruit slices (also named pitaya), and more recently discovered a beautiful dragonfruit powder. I use the same puree called for in this recipe, in this refreshing dragonfruit shrub quencher. And use the dried fruit in this dragonfruit tonic. Have fun experimenting!
