How To Cut A Dragon Fruit

 

Dragon fruit has to be one of our favorites! It is a type of cactus- that actually comes in 3 colors. Two actually have pink skin, but different colored flesh (one white, the other red), while the other is yellow with white flesh. Dragon fruit is low in calories and offers numerous nutrients, including Vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, fiber, healthy fats and full of antioxidants.

The taste? It’s a cross between kiwi & pear. It is very refreshing. Great additional ingredient to a fruit salad, smoothie & even enjoyed alone.

Where do you find them? They can be found at your Local Farmer’s Market or Whole Foods- when in season. You may even find it in the “exotic food section” of you local grocery store.

How to pick a Dragon fruit? Look for bright, even-colored skin. If the fruit has a lot of blotches, it may be over ripe. Another sign of over-ripe fruit is if it has very brittle, & on the brown leaves I should be a little ripe but not too mushy when touched.
