This Pink Magic Pitaya Smoothie is my new go-to. Smoothies will never cease to make an appearance in my world because I just love them too much. There is something so refreshing about a big cold and delicious smoothie-it’s like a magical cure to any bad day, headache, or even if you’re just feeling a little sluggish. I especially love adding Pitaya (aka Dragon Fruit) to my smoothies or bowls because it has so many great health benefits and not to mention insanely delicious.
Dragon Fruit only has about 60 calories per serving, and is full of C and B vitamins, antioxidants, iron, calcium, fiber and helps to decrease bad cholesterol levels. And that’s only naming a few of it’s benefits…Can you imagine what else it can do? Anyway, go ahead and give this smoothie a whirl because everyone needs a little more magic in their lives, do you agree? Cheers and Happy Saturday!
