Tips & Tricks for Dragon Fruit Smoothie

High Speed Blender 

I highly recommend using a high-speed blender. Using a high-speed blender will ensure that all your fruit is well blended and that your smoothie has a creamy texture. If your blender isn’t fast enough, you will find that the texture of your smoothie is off. 

Thickness of the Smoothie 

You can adjust the texture of your smoothie by adding certain ingredients! Add extra fruit to make your smoothie nice and thick. You can also add extra plant based milk to help thin out the smoothie.

Variations to Dragon Fruit Smoothie

Added Fruit 

Feel free to change up the fruit you add into this smoothie. Any fruit you have on hand will work great. Toss in some frozen pineapple, kiwi, mango, etc. Create whatever flavor combo you prefer!

Flaxseed 

Add in a little flaxseed to add in extra nutrients. Sneak in a tablespoon or two for your kids who are going to sip this smoothie—or great nutrients for you! 

Plant-Based Yogurt 

Instead of milk, you can use a vanilla plant-based yogurt. This will give you a thicker and richer smoothie. 

Dragon Fruit Smoothie FAQs

What does dragon fruit taste like? 

Dragon fruit is a mild fruit when it comes to flavor. You will find fresh dragon fruit offers the flavor of a pear mixed with a kiwi. Dragon fruit is a delicious fruit that tastes great mixed in with other fruits. 

Can you freeze dragon fruit? 

You can freeze dragon fruit if you buy some from the store. This is a great way to prep your fruit and keep it ready to toss in smoothies like this.

Dragon fruit can be tricky to find, depending on where you live. So if you find some, go ahead and buy a lot so you can freeze some for later!

How do you store leftover smoothie? 

If you don’t drink all your smoothie right away, don’t worry—you can save it! Store your leftover smoothie in an airtight container for 1–2 days in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to eat it, just give the smoothie a stir, pour into a glass, and enjoy.
