What to do with Dragon Fruit – Make a smoothie of course!

[shareaholic app="share_buttons" id="27983777"]

So I got a Dragon Fruit from Grub the other week and was trying different recipes with it. Since it is a pretty subtle flavor I thought I would try it in a smoothie and it was delicious. So here it is, of course you can add or subtract or change ingredients with what you have on hand or like.

3/4 C Coconut Milk (homemade or carton)

1 tbsp flax meal

1 tbsp sesame seed powder

2 tbsp collagen (could skip this or add a different protein powder)

1 tbsp cacao powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

4 med-lrg strawberries

1 C dragon fruit, chopped

1/4 avocado

Handful of carrots

Handful of Escarole

1/2 banana

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Makes 1 large smoothie or 2 small smoothies.

Top with cacao nibs and unsweetened coconut flakes if desired.
