I love being in the kitchen and creating new recipes, especially with products that are new to me. A couple weeks ago I posted a recipe for dragon fruit mocktails that were a big hit.

Working with pitaya powder is so fun, and I love the vibrant color it adds to food. The best part is the color is all natural, which is my favorite way to color food.

It’s also dairy-free so it works great if you have a dairy allergy or follow a plant-based diet.

This dairy-free pitaya parfait recipe is made using the same pitaya powder from NW Bulk Market. If you haven’t had a chance to check out their site yet, I highly recommend it. I love that I can buy a variety of pantry items in the quantity I need at a great price.

How do I use pitaya powder?

Pitaya powder can be uses in smoothie bowls, parfaits, puddings, drinks, yogurts, and more. It enhances the color of your food naturally without adding any fake coloring. There is not much taste to the pitaya powder, so it can be added into many different foods without altering the flavor.

How to make this recipe

1 – Once the dates are pitted, toss them in the food processor along with the cinnamon. Together they blend into a nice mixture for the perfect crust to the parfait.

It will be very sticky. For a less sticky consistency add some dried mulberries or oats to the mix. Then divide the mixture evenly into two glasses and set aside.

2 – For the parfait pitaya mix, place the frozen mango, banana, dragon fruit, along with the pitaya powder and almond milk into a blender and blend until smooth.

The consistency for this parfait works best when blending fruit that is completely solid. I recommend starting with less almond milk until the desired consistency is reached because more can always be added to thin it out.

3 – Pour over the date crust. Top with your favorite fruit, like frozen blueberries or kiwi.

Can I store my parfait for later?

The parfait should be eaten immediately, but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

    My daughter has been loving smoothies lately but they have to be purple so adding pitaya powder to any smoothie will make the perfect smoothie for her. Excited to try your pitaya parfait too.
