Dragon Fruit Smoothie



I pick up a dragon fruit once in a while. Not that I love the fruit, but at times when I see the pretty fruit, I feel like picking it up. A good way of eating it is with a sprinkle of salt and sugar. It really spikes up the fruit. Another way I like it is when it is made into a smoothie with coconut milk. Somehow I don’t like it with milk, the fruit literally spoils the milk! But with coconut milk, it tends to gel so well. The little seeds also give the smoothie a pretty look, just like how kiwis do.
