Blend it Once you have peeled the fruit, you can use the flesh to make breakfast smoothies and refreshing juices at home.
Dragon fruit has a subtle sweet flavour which can be teamed with a whole range of ingredients, especially kiwi, pineapple, banana, strawberries and oranges.
While there’s nothing wrong with eating dragon fruit on its own, its mild flavor could be a little boring to some. So, here are some ways to make things more exciting:
Drizzle with honey. This simple approach makes a huge difference. The sweetness in honey makes up for the flavor lacking in dragon fruit.
Top it with yogurt. A simple Greek yogurt will give this watery fruit some creaminess. You may even top it with some toasted almonds and macadamia nuts to give it a nice crunch.
Turn it into a smoothie. Enhance its subtle flavor by mixing it with bananas and berries. To make a dragon fruit smoothie, place some slices of dragon fruit, banana, and berries into a blender.
Then add your choice of base – yogurt, cow milk, soy milk, or nut milk are all great options.
Next up, add the sweetener – this could be sugar, syrup, or honey. Blend those ingredients using the “pulp” function until smooth.
Finally, pour into a glass and drink up!
Make fruit kebabs. This is a perfect healthy snack for summer! Slice your dragon fruit into small bite-sized cubes.
Then do the same with your choice of fruits – we highly suggest ripe mangoes and pineapples.
Thread the fruits onto wooden skewers and then lay them on the grill.
Cook over medium-high heat until brown on one side.
Flip them over and cook until the other side turns brown. Sprinkle with some sugar and serve this tasty treat.
