Get ELECTRIC with this hot pink antioxidant smoothie made with Pitaya fruit (A.K.A. dragon fruit). This smoothie is super simple to make, taste refreshing and is perfect for a post-workout meal or energizing snack! This fruit is full of antioxidants and vitamin-C. Pitaya tastes similar to kiwi fruit or pear and has tiny seeds that are edible just like a kiwi fruit. The fruit comes in 3 colors: 2 have pink skin, but with different colored flesh (one white, the other hot pink), while another type is yellow with white flesh. I used the pink fleshed fruit. This smoothie is so energizing, and you can’t help but love the hot pink color!
