I’ve been going wild and crazy with good ol’ oats and my favorite fruits these days. Admittedly, I’ve always been a lover of a satisfying bowl of oatmeal and fresh fruit in the morning but my world got rocked with a lot more pink upon moving to Southern California, the land of pink pitaya ubiquity in juice bars and health food stores. When I spotted that good looking, ultra pink pitaya fruit transforming those already fantastically nutritious smoothies and juices my favorite color, I knew at once that I needed to learn about the pitaya fruit and play around with it in creative and adventuresome recipe experimentations, overnight oatmeal bowls included.
This oatmeal bowl is pretty jazzy and 100% delicious without the addition of sweetly pink pitaya, but the pitaya is the reason why the oatmeal bowl you see above is PINK! And it’s 100% naturally pink, without any preservatives, nasty chemicals or other undesirable ingredients. All you have to do is order some pitaya plus ~> CLICK HERE to get some <~ and store a bunch in your freezer for convenient defrosting at any time your heart and hungry stomach desires. Upon receiving your own pitaya plus packs and placing those packs in your freezer, you can simply defrost a pack when you are ready to make oatmeal/smoothie/juice/whateva and then BING BANG BOOM, your food will turn pink. It’s that AWESOME.
Speaking…ur writing of awesome, a tablespoon of coconut butter added to bowls of oatmeal already bursting with tropical and fruity flavors makes aforementioned bowls that much more delicious. As written in my made up title of this recipe (making up recipe titles is one of my favorite parts of being a food blogger/recipe creator!!!), this recipe is uber-easy to prepare and really, really good for our bodies. Eating this bowl kept me full for hours upon hours! There are so many types of fiber and micronutrients have a little party in this one beautiful meal. It’s THE BEST. It is the best for our bodies and the best for girls who love pink everywhere.
This simple recipe is really fun to play around with, so play around and change it up. Make your own and let me know what you think of it. Recipe suggestions and your reactions to my recipes are always desirable! Let’s help each other get healthier and enjoy really tasty meals at the same time. CHYEAH. Rock that health. Rock it!
P.S. Somebody recently proclaimed that my diet is like squirrel food. PULEASEEEE. Get with the program people, just get with it! This is people food. Really delicious people food. I love my non-squirrelly food a whole darn lot. Has anyone ever said to you that your food is like rabbit or squirrel food?! UGH. So annoying, right?
