While it might not quite be a superfood, iron, fiber, and vitamin C are the most known nutrients in dragonfruit. It’s a low-calorie fruit with lots of colors. The fruit comes in four varieties of colors. Three of the fruits come pink-skinned, but with different color flesh- red, purple, and white flesh. The fourth one comes in yellow skin with white flesh.
Dragonfruit only blooms once a year, and comes to our grocery stores from July-October. If you can’t find fresh dragonfruit, grab a bag of frozen for a tasty dragonfruit smoothie. It’s a great treat!
What you will need to make a dairy-free dragonfruit smoothie:
Dragonfruit is rich in fiber and prebiotics for your gut health.
Pineapple fills you with enzymes that support digestion and boosts your immune system.
Banana is rich in vitamin C and manganese, as well as potassium.
Coconut water & coconut milk help to reduce blood pressure and contain antioxidants.
Along with these ingredients, you will need handful of fresh mint leaves, the juice from fresh lime, and a pinch of salt for flavor.
