Gut Healing Pink Pitaya Bowl

By Sophia Hill | July 22nd, 2019 | Recipes

This month’s delicious and nutritious recipe is brought to you by Registered Nutritional Therapist Sophia Hill (sophiaskitchentheraphy.com / @sophiaskitchentherapy).

BENEFITS

This recipe contains a powerhouse of nutrients and antioxidants, both great for healing the gut. It also contains collagen powder which helps to repair the mucosal membranes in the intestines if they have been damaged due to reasons such as antibiotic usage or dysbiosis. The recipe also contains a satiating balance of healthy fats from avocado and nut butter and protein from the collagen powder to balance your blood sugar levels throughout the day. Pink pitaya (AKA dragon fruit) not only looks pretty but also is loaded with nutritious compounds including Vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and Omega 3 essential fatty acids which are stored in the seeds. Dragon fruits are rich in dietary fibre which plays an important role in maintaining the health of the digestive system.

INGREDIENTS & METHOD

  • 1 frozen banana (ripe)
  • ½ courgette
  • ½ small ripe avocado
  • 1 handful frozen raspberries
  • 2 tsp almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon collagen powder
  • 2 tsp pink pitaya powder
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • Your favourite toppings (I like granola, chia seeds, blueberries)

Blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender and serve in a bowl. Top with your favourite toppings!
