Dragon Fruit Smoothie

I'm on a low calorie diet, thinking about what I can have for breakfast, the easiest to whip up would be a low calorie smoothie. I had Dragon Fruits in my pantry so, I have added milk and blend it for a healthy and yummy drink. Dragon fruit is very nutritious, it is also known as Pitaya, its originates from Mexico and South America and commercially grown in Asian countries. It has blood glucose level lowering properties, this fruit also has high protein content boosts metabolism and natural antioxidant.

Now let us see how to prepare this simple smoothie;


Ingredients:
2 cups of dragon fruit (chopped)
100 ml of low fat milk (chilled) or sub with plain yogurt

Pulse both the ingredients in a mixer or blender until the fruit is well mixed with milk, I prefer having small pieces in the drink. Pour the smoothie in a glass and have it immediately. Do try and let me know how was it!

Perfect smoothie for dieters
