Dragon Fruit Boats -Easy Plant Based Breakfast

Dragon Fruit Boats -Easy Plant Based Breakfast

When it comes to breakfast, I’m all about fast and easy meals! Breakfast can be tough for anyone following a vegan/plant based diet because many of the usual breakfast foods (like eggs, and most bagels) are off-limits. Luckily, these Dragon Fruit Boats are here to fill the void! 

The main ingredient in these boats is the coconut chia pudding, which can be made the night before. Chia seeds are chock full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke. 

These Dragon Fruit Boats are created by hallowing out a dragon fruit, scooping in the pudding and topping with your favorite fruit. They can be made in minutes, which makes them ideal for a healthy, plant based breakfast.
