Raspberry and Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowls

   A delicious Raspberry and Dragon Fruit Smoothie made from a creamy combination of dragon fruit, raspberry. By using non-dairy milk and substituting a plant-based protein, you can keep this dragon fruit smoothie recipe vegan. 


These smoothies brighten my day, and if you have a young child at home, you may just discover a new way to get the 5-9 a day in their diets. My son is a picky eater, but he can't resist a colourful, fun smoothie.


If you enjoy tropical flavours, you should also try this Mango Coconut Smoothie.


NUTRITION OF DRAGON FRUIT

  Why bother with dragon fruit now? Aside from its beautiful colour, it has gained popularity in the health food community due to its high nutrient value.


MAKE A DRAGON FRUIT SMOOTHIE (PITAYA SMOOTHIE)

  Keep frozen fruit on hand in the freezer to make smoothie preparation easier. I usually have frozen bananas, berries, and grapefruit on hand to throw into smoothies. I've been adding dragon fruit to the mix lately because the vibrant colour brightens my day!

Once the fruit has frozen, combine it with non-dairy milk, such as almond or coconut milk, a squeeze of lime, and a scoop of protein powder in a blender. This whey protein isolate is one of my favourites because it is pure protein – no carbs or artificial sweeteners – it tastes great, and it adds the BEST creamy and light texture to smoothies.


HOW DOES DRAGON FRUIT TASTE?

The flavour of dragon fruit is mildly sweet. Some people compare the flavour to that of kiwi, though it lacks the strong tart flavour of kiwi.


Dragon fruit has almost no flavour if it is not ripe. I've also discovered that organic dragon fruits and dragon fruits from Thailand have the most delicious flavours.

RECIPE

    • 12 cups dragon fruit, diced (1 if desired for a topping)

    • Frozen raspberries, 10 oz (15 ounces if desired for topping)

PREPARATION
