Vibrant and nutritious dragon fruit smoothie

Dragon fruit smoothie
Right now, it’s peak season for dragon fruit in the Bundaberg Region and the fresh fruit full of antioxidants keeps growing in popularity year-on-year.

With vibrant pink, or pearly white flesh, the lightly sweet taste of dragon fruit is ideal when blended with sweeter fruits to make a dragon fruit smoothie.

Right now, it’s peak season for dragon fruit in the Bundaberg Region and the fresh fruit full of antioxidants keeps growing in popularity year-on-year.

A perfect dragon fruit smoothie is made with a creamy blend of dragon fruit, mango, and banana.

Besides its gorgeous colour, dragon fruit has gained a lot of traction in the health food community because of its high nutrient value being rich in iron, magnesium, and fibre.

Dragon fruit has a lightly sweet taste and benefits from blending up with sweeter fruits, such as banana, mango, strawberries, blueberries or pineapple which all add great flavour to dragon fruit smoothies.
