Happy Monday!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I just got back from vacationing in Denver, and I’m sooo not ready for everyday life to start back up yet. I’ve been so in love with Denver. The atmosphere just feels different. The air feels fresher. Maybe it’s because we were surrounded by so many parks, trees, and mountains. I don’t know exactly what it is. But I really really liked it there.

While we were in Denver, we visited different breweries and toured a candy factory as well as a tea factory. And of course, we also tried a ton of restaurants that I bookmarked prior to our trip. Our schedule was pretty packed the past few days. We were so exhausted at the end of the day, but it was so much fun. I’ll have to go through all the photos before posting them, but you can definitely see a preview on Instagram.

In the meantime, I’m sharing with you this pitaya smoothie.

I’ve been so obsessed lately with spring and summer fruits, especially tropical fruits. The bright magenta color of pitaya makes this tropical fruit perfect for smoothies as well as a natural food color.

For this creamy pitaya smoothie, I used just three ingredients: pitaya, bananas, and almond milk. Super simple ingredients and just a few minutes of blending before you have a refreshing drink ready to be served.

To maintain that creamy texture, this smoothie is best consumed as soon as it’s made. Once the drink is no longer frozen, the texture is not the same.
