This Pink Passion Smoothie Bowl is based with pitaya and raspberries to make it the perfect combo of sweet and tangy! You can buy pitaya packets at almost any grocery store in the frozen fruit section. I get mine from Whole Foods.

A powerful blender is key to making thick smoothie bowls. I have been using Blendtec for years and absolutely LOVE it. It blends everything SO fast and SO smoothly! 

Frozen bananas are the most important part of any smoothie recipe. They make the texture perfectly smooth and creamy. I freeze mine ahead of time so I never run out!

To freeze your bananas make sure you peel and chop them before you place them in a zip block bag. I’ve seen people try to freeze bananas whole and trust me, it’s a disaster. The peel will be impossible to g...

It’s time for our Women Wednesday Spotlight to commence once again. To welcome back everyone, we thought we’d talk about the woman who started it all: Candace Chen, the Founder and CEO of Pink Matter!

Candace had a goal to use globalization as a means to bring positive and amazing things from one country to another.

Last week we recognized Kat Salazar, an active girl boss in making the world a better place. This week, we have a woman who I hold dear to my heart (totally not biased because she’s my sister), is an incredible inspiration to everyone around her, and was basically forced on a path that she didn’t know she wanted: Camille Rosales, Girl Boss and owner of a growing Local U-Haul Dealership.

Camille graduated from Irvine Valley College with a degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. When Cam moved back home from Irvine in 2012, she began working at a family friend’s U-Haul dealership — little did she know this was only the beginning for her career path. After working at the two dealership locations, Cam had grown tired of the work, environment, and treatment, and decided to switch career paths in U-Haul, moving to the corporate side. She also decided she was going to also attended California Baptist University and become a teacher. With almost a year left of her degree, Camille had received...
