This week I am sharing with you a dragon fruit smoothie recipe – all making the most of these wonderfully delicious fruits coming back in season. This recipe also makes the most of some other in season fruits including mango. Enjoy!  


  • Frozen Dragon Fruit – of course, you can use fresh dragon fruit, cut, scoop, and fresh the flesh or use it raw if in season. But I personally prefer the frozen dragon fruits because it makes your pitaya smoothie so creamy. You can use any dragon fruit color: red, white, or yellow. (Jumping Red Ant) 
  • Frozen Mango – the dragon fruit mango smoothie combination is heavenly delicious! Plus mango has a frothy creamy texture to the drink too. If you are not a fan of mango, try frozen pineapple or frozen banana. (Everest Farm Bananas and Avocados from Burringbar) 
  • Banana – fresh, small. (Everest Farm Bananas) 
  • Coconut Milk or almond milk. 
  • Ice Cubes 
  • Lime Juice (fresh limes available at Jumping Red Ant) 


Step 1: Add all the ingredients into a high-speed blender’s jug, starting with the frozen dragon fruits, frozen mango, banana slices, protein powder, coconut milk, ice cubes, and lime juice. 

Step 2: Blend on high speed until it comes together into a creamy, frothy pink smoothie. 

Step 3: If your smoothie is too thin to your liking, or you want to turn it into a pitaya smoothie bowl, add more frozen pitaya or ice cubes. 

Step 4: Serve immediately with a pinch of freeze-dried raspberries, toasted coconut, and a lime slice on the side of the glass.
