Tips

  • If you like a less sweet smoothie, omit the orange juice and simply add additional water. You might substitute a little squeeze of lemon or lime juice for the juice, which adds a sweet and tangy flavor.
  • You can adjust this smoothie to your preferences. Hemp hearts or a dollop of almond butter can be added for protein or fat and fiber.
  • You can also use banana or if you don't want to use the banana, you might use 2-3 Medjool dates for a similar sweetness.
  • Fresh dragon fruit can be kept for a few days on the counter or much longer in the refrigerator.
  • Frozen dragon fruit, as well as frozen raspberries and blackberries, will keep in the freezer for 6 to 9 months.
  • A few things to keep in mind while buying dragon fruit:
  • When buying dragon fruit, make sure that the dragon fruit is ripe and fresh. Give the fruit a little push with your fingertips before you buy it. If it's slightly soft, it's safe to pick up. If it's too soft, be sure it's not overripe. The fruit should be a bright pink color with no bruises or dark spots.
  • If desired, strawberry yogurt can be substituted with plain or vanilla yogurt. To make this recipe vegan, replace the strawberry yogurt with dairy-free yogurt.
