Dragon fruit (Pitaya) is one of the more curious looking fruits in the produce section of the grocery store. Perhaps you questioned it’s flavour, or brilliant pink hues. This psychedelic explosion of colour actually benefits your health in a myriad of different ways! In fact, the health benefits of dragon fruit far outweigh anything you’ve ever imagined!
Before we get to the amazing health benefits of this astounding fruit, you may wonder what it tastes like. If left to ripen (the green “leaves” on the fruit will start to brown when the fruit is ripe, and the fruit itself will be slightly soft to touch), this fruit tastes a little bit like a marshmallow kiwi! Incredibly sweet with a very slight background tang, this fruit is a definite must-try!
This fruit is excellent on its own, or paired with other fruit like kiwi and pineapple. It is also great as an addition to smoothies. Here are health and beauty benefits of dragon fruit.
