Dragonfruit (pitaya) smoothie

 

Serves 1

Ingredients

1 frozen banana

Flesh of half a pitaya (preferably dark variety) (pitaya is also known as dragonfruit)

3/4 cup calcium-enriched almond milk

1 tsp rosewater, or to taste

2 tsp chia seeds

Optional to garnish: Lighter pitaya variety, prepared into melon balls.

 

Method

Place all ingredients into a blender and whizz together until smooth and frothy. Serve immediately.

 

Tips:

Add more chia and allow it to set overnight to form a vibrant jelly.

Substitute pitaya with frozen strawberries if desired or if pitaya is not available.
