Tips and Substitutions:

  • Dragon fruit smoothie with almond milk; you could substitute another non-dairy milk.
  • Dragon fruit smoothie packs are convenient and found in the freezer section of the grocery store.  You could use frozen dragon fruit chunks or fresh dragon fruit cut in chunks in this smoothie.
  • If the smoothie is too thick, add a bit more liquid (water or dairy-free milk).  If the smoothie is too thin, add more frozen fruits or ice.
  • Swap out the fruits used for what you have on hand.  (E.g. Pineapple for mango, orange for strawberry, blueberries, etc..).
  • Throw in some fresh or frozen spinach for added veggies.
  • Add some honey or maple syrup if the smoothie is not sweet enough for you.

  2. Pour into a bowl.
  3. Add toppings like fresh berries, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, chia seeds, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, etc...
  4. Throw in some fresh or frozen spinach for added veggies.
