Recipe: Pitaya Chia Smoothie
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!
