Pitaya, or dragon fruit, has hot-pink (or white) skin and a polka dot flesh inside. The skin also looks like green flames. It’s really cool! And even more, it’s naturally photogenic (*wink*). Pitaya has a subtly sweet and is similar to kiwi (in taste and texture). I’ve red that pitaya is a cactus species but don’t be alarmed! The leaves don’t prick.
For this recipe, I actually used a frozen pitaya packet, sold in a pack of 4. I’ve only ever seen pink frozen pitaya packets. Something about that hot-pink color that is just eye catching! This would be a great option to make in the morning but I don’t recommend it on the go. If you don’t allow yourself to enjoy breakfast at home, just save it for the weekend! This is good and takes less than 5 minutes!
