Topical dragon fruit, pineapple and tangerine smoothie to brighten this COLD day! I love dragon fruit. I think it’s one of my favourites. It’s highly nutritious as well as being just beautiful looking! It’s like a sweet, smooth kiwi (kinda) and the flesh comes in white, pink and purple. The pink and purple flesh has a higher vitamin A (beta carotene) content. Great for healthy cell regeneration, especially the skin 

Dragon fruit has a high amount of vitamin C. Because the dragon fruit is a natural, whole food it also provides you with a rich balance of nutrients to go along with that. This means you absorb the Vitamin C in dragon fruit efficiently.

This fruit is a natural source of anti-oxidants which help to prevent the dangers of free radicals which can cause chronic illness, tissue damage, cancers and other undesirable health detriments.The number, quantity, and variety of antioxidants in real foods like dragon fruit is completely unmatched by any food supplement or pills – even those claiming to have ‘antioxidant’ health benefits. Nothing compares to the rich array of nutrients and antioxidants in natural whole foods.

Dragon fruit does have a small amount of gorgeous essential fats because there are so many seeds in the edible part of the fruit. There can be literally thousands of the small black edible seeds in any dragon fruit. Seeds, like nuts, are a rich source of omega fatty acids and proteins. Fruit really is a pretty perfect food source.
