Red dragon fruit, also known as pink pitaya, is loaded with magical health benefits! When it is cut open, it may either have a vivid magenta flesh or a creamy white flesh, but either way, it’s speckled with little black seeds like the ones that we see in a kiwi fruit. The dragon fruit is said to be extremely healthy, rich in vitamin C, antioxidants and phytonutrients among other beneficial substances. The red-fleshed variety certainly makes for stunning drinks and smoothie bowls!

Ingredients:

  • Flesh scooped out of a dragon fruit
  • Milk – ½ cup
  • Ice cubes – A few depending on personal preferences
  • Vanilla essence – 2 drops
