Heeeelllooooo all my lovely people!

I have been, well, sick.. unfortunately:( Summer in Tokyo is just really hot and gets me but how are YOU?

Because I was sick for the past week, I needed something that gives me plenty of vitamins and minerals like my tropical pitaya smoothie bowl.

I just desperately needed something to charge lots of energy for my body and smoothie bowl with lots of fruits in it is the best way to charge as much nutrients and recover from this nasty summer cold.

Like I always say, smoothies are not only delicious but very good breakfast choice to hydrate your skin from inside especially in summer for beautiful skin!

Key points for this tropical pitaya smoothie bowl

Do you want your smoothie bowl so thick and creamy but end up with runny and more watery smoothie? I get it! I didn’t now how to make thick and creamy smoothie before either. But now that I am pretty confident to say that I a almost a smoothie master (if there was such qualification out there ) here are some tips to make the BEST thick and creamy tropical pitaya smoothie bowl. (Or any other smoothie bowl as a matter fo the fact!)

1. Frozen fruits

It is very important to use frozen fruits to make a thick and creamy smoothie bowl. I use about 70 – 90% frozen fruits and 10 – 30% fresh fruits I think.

I always have some banana, berry mix, blueberries and mangos frozen in the freezer ready to be blended into a nice smoothie bowl.

2. High speed blender

Any blender works for this tropical pitaya smoothie bowl recipe, BUT, using a high speed blender is the best to get the best result for any smoothie bowl recipes. Frozen fruits are much harder to blend than fresh fruits, so using a powerful blender makes it whole lot easier to make a smoothie bowl.

Because it blends pretty much anything very thoroughly and smoothly, the texture of smoothie is much smoother, silkier and creamier.

I used to use a blender that my dad got from a local shopping centre, which was an ordinary home blender that you can find for like less than £30.

It did an ok job but I wanted something more powerful so I got my first  Ninja blender and it totally changed my smoothie game!
This one is much more affordable than vitamix, and the good news is it does a perfect job blending and super powerful. I use this ever since the day I got it and I recommend it to you too if you are looking for a good affordable blender!

Ninja blender

This Ninja blender totally changed my smoothie game!

It’s powerful and blends solid hard ingredients like frozen fruits or large ice cubes. 

And it’s much more affordable than vitamix while it does the perfect job blending anything!

Food processor

This Kitchenaid food processor is another great blending tool too!

My old one broke so I was looking to get a nice food processor. What I like about this food processor from Kitchenaid is it’s compact and stylish, yet does a lovely job blending hard ingredients like frozen fruits or nuts.

So far the best and cute food processor and I love using this to create my recipes.

3. Sweetener

If you like to add more sweetness in the tropical pitaya smoothie bowl, try adding some coconut sugar.

Coconut sugar gives subtle and rich tropical sweetness to the smoothie bowl and I love adding it when I have an extra sweet tooth.

You will LOVE this tropical pitaya smoothie bowl because it’s:

– super thick and creamy
– naturally sweet
– very hydrating
– pitaya base
– summery and delicious
– great breakfast on a hot day
