Be Sweet To Your Sweet Tooth
When you’re craving something sweet, that’s your body saying feed me sugar! We don’t have to feel guilty about that, we just have to feed it the right kind of sugar! Fruits in their natural, whole food state, or chock full of fiber, which helps to slow the effects of sugar in the bloodstream, and they’re also loaded with other nutrients that our bodies thrive off of! This sweet treat will hit the spot, without any refined sugar, dairy, or anything else inflammatory that traditional ice cream and desserts contain!
Pleasing to the palate & a surprise for the eyes
The Original Juicy Fruit
This Bubblegum Bowl has two distinct features—it’s flavor and its color! Jack fruit is said to be where the classic Juicy Fruit bubblegum flavor originated from. Fact or fiction, this tropical fruit totally tastes like a mouthful of my chewy childhood favorite! Jack fruit is ripe with nutrients, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium, and what makes it unique amongst the fruits is its higher than normal protein content, with 3g per cup! Fun fact: some vegetarians and vegans use jack fruit as a meat substitute, due to its texture, which is similar to that of shredded meat—think: pulled jack fruit sandwiches (it’s a real thing)!
The hubs and I have been making this 6-ingredient smoothie combo on repeat as of late, and it makes for the perfect pre-workout, post-workout, breakfast, or dessert—it’s amazing anytime of day! We always add a scoop of our long-time favorite, SunWarrior Vanilla Warrior Blend protein powder, because it helps to keep us fueled!

Pitaya, also known as dragon fruit, is known for its vibrant pink hue, and can transform any smoothie or dish from blah to beautiful. This fruit has a mild flavor and a texture similar to that of kiwi, due to its tiny, edible, crunchy black seeds inside. Thanks to its antioxidant flavonoids, dragon fruit has been linked to better brain health and a reduced risk for heart disease!
Pink Bubblegum Smoothie Bowl
This vibrant frozen treat is a delight to the eyes and pleasing to the palate, with its pop of flavor, reminiscent of that of Juicy Fruit bubblegum, thanks to our star ingredient, jack fruit! This tropical fruit is actually said to be the origin of the flavor of our favorite childhood bubblegum, and it’s a lot better for you! This blend will have you thinking pink and feeling fine!
