Pitaya Smoothie

My Pitaya Smoothie is such a winning combination of flavor! And can we talk about that color? When your smoothie color matches the beautiful flowers growing outside your condo, it’s definitely a sign that you’re winning in life…haha! I just had to photograph this pitaya smoothie outside in nature where it belongs.

Many people think this color is artificial because its so brightly pigmented, but that’s the natural color of pitaya, which is another name of dragon fruit. Dragon fruit is a superfruit indigenous to Central and South America that is now grown all over the world. It is a brightly colored pink fruit that has a mild but refreshing taste.

Pitaya, or Dragon Fruit, has a faint, sweet taste, comparable to that of an earthy watermelon. All of its seeds give it the consistency of a kiwi . It can be difficult to find pitaya in grocery stores, so I love buying the frozen pitaya. That way, I always have it on hand for refreshing smoothies.

Because of its gorgeous color, I’ve found that pitaya is a great way to get my kids to eat more fruit. They love pink smoothies and sometimes, the strawberry/banana smoothie combo can just old and boring if you’re 5 years old. This pitaya smoothie gives them a chance to explore new flavors without overthinking the shape, texture and flavor of a single new unique fruit. If you’d like to substitute the coconut water for milk, that would totally work, or your can keep it vegan and simple with the 3 ingredients listed.

This is healthy, refreshing and absolutely tasteful, so I hope you give it a try for yourself and your little ones. Fresh, flavorful and oh-so fabulous smoothie for the win!
