Dragon Fruit Smoothie or that’s loaded with fiber, antioxidants, healthy fats, and protein. I recommend blending it with mild-flavored fruits such as bananas, strawberry, mangoes or papayas. Dragon fruit is naturally grown in Central America and Asia.

This fruit can also refer to as pitaya (pit-ah-ya), and the flesh of the fruit comes in both red/pink and white. The dragon fruit has a surprisingly bland flavor reminiscent of a mildly sweet melon or kiwifruit.
