RECIPE: Dragon Fruit Smoothie

For all you Game of Thrones fanatics or those of you who care what you put in to your body, this is a Dragonfruit smoothie, whose color is more vibrant than Bran Stark’s visions.

Dragon Fruit Smoothie

 

Dragon fruit, or Pitaya, is actually the fruit of a cactus,  has a mild flavor like melon or kiwifruit and is rich in antioxidants (hello anti-aging!)

If you don’t have any cacti or dragons in your hood, sub raspberries instead.  Drink up the goodness and let the healing begin!

In a Vitamix combine:

1/4 cup Frozen Dragonfruit (or raspberries)

1/2 cup of pineapple

1 tablespoon of honey

2 cups of water

4 mint leaves (and a few for garnish)

    OH MAN! Dragon fruit. Raspberry sub would probably be pretty, but man, not the same! We love dragon fruit but can’t get it much.
