This strawberry dragon fruit smoothie is so simple to make. If you haven’t ever tried a dragon fruit then you don’t know that it’s the prettiest of all fruits. There are a few varieties, pink skin with white flesh, yellow skin with white flesh, and pink skin with bright pink flesh.
Don’t let their bright and bold appearance fool you, they tend to be bland. Since they are kinda bland, it makes a perfect fruit for smoothies. You can combine it with so many other fruits and flavors.
Dragon fruits aren’t always easy to find. When they are in season and I find them at the grocery store, I buy a few and scoop out the edible part, chop it up and freeze for later. This makes it even more perfect for an icy smoothie on a hot summer day.
How to Make a Dragon Fruit Smoothie
You will need:
Since I love strawberries I combined them with the dragon fruit in this smoothie.
I always make smoothies in my favorite Ninja blender. I have had it for about five years now and it still works great. It blends so fast, even with ice. It comes with a few attachments, for smoothies I use the large pitcher. In the photo above you can see that it has two rows of blades that blend super fast.
In minutes you will have a delicious and healthy strawberry dragon fruit smoothie! You can blend ice with fruit and have a pretty good smoothie. I almost always add plain Greek yogurt to most of my smoothies for an extra dose of protein.
If you notice, the straw in this photo is glass. I would have never thought of using a glass straw but I came across the idea while reading a recent magazine. So, I searched for a good brand and found one that I love. I have Hummingbird Glass Straws and I love them!
Since I make smoothies quite frequently and hate being wasteful, I decided to give them a try. The ones that I found came with a teeny little scrubber to clean them with. They work well and are thick enough for any smoothies or ice cream shakes to fit through.
I was impressed with the recyclable box no unnecessary plastic at all, and the scrubby brush makes them easy to clean.
You can see that the width of the opening is a good size for almost any shake or smoothie you can make.
