Yes, I know. It’s pink. Really pink. But its actually got a bit of purple in it as well (if that helps!). I hope you aren’t one of those people that has an I-don’t-drink-pink-things rule, because you’ll really be missing out on this!

This is my very first post on the new website! I figured it deserves a special first post as well. Dragon fruit sound special enough? If it isn’t, then there’s a whole bunch of madly colored, incredibly textured fruits that go into this smoothie as well!

I sort of snuck in this dragon fruit from my 4 day trip to Singapore (shhhh! And don’t you dare imply I smuggled anything. That sweet man at customs might be reading this, you know).

Singapore…sigh… Just thinking about the place makes me so hungry that I feel faint. Hold on while I find me some chocolate.

(See? You want some now as well, don’t you?)

Anyway, moving on to the recipe!


You will need – yogurt (I like the full fat kind, but you can use what you like), pomegranate juice (I just realized that I have a serious addiction issue with this), figs, raspberries, blackberries and (finally!) a medium sized ripe dragon fruit.


Cut the dragon fruit in half. Ignore all the other fruits and focus on all the pretty black seeds and that gorgeous pink color.

Use frozen berries instead of ice cubes (you’ll have a much thicker drink that way). I recommend you work on chopping the figs and throwing everything but the dragon fruit into the blender. Sort of saving the best for the last, you know. I am a firm believer in that theory (so don’t even think about touching that last slice of pizza when I’m around. Really.).


Looks amazing, don’t you think? No, I don’t think you realize just how beautiful this is. Look!


Take a deep breath and try and focus.

Try again. It’ll work soon enough. Really.

Alright, now that you’ve done all the rest of it, take a spoon and carefully scoop out the pulp, then slice it into cubes… Sigh… Doesn’t it look pretty? Allow yourself one small cube before quickly scooping it all out into the blender with the other fruits. Blend until smooth, but don’t go overboard, those black seeds are gorgeously crunchy, you don’t want to blend them away to nothing! Not to mention the berries and the figs…


Pour into a glass, and enjoy!!! This is filling enough to be a meal substitute I suppose. Unless you’re always hungry like I am… I personally  like it best with a nice big breakfast! Bring on the bacon and sausages!

Recipe :


dragon fruit                     –     1 medium sized fruit

figs                                     –     2

blackberries                    -      1/4 cup

raspberries                      -      1/4 cup

yogurt                               –       1/3 cup

pomegranate juice        -       1/3 cup

Freeze the berries

Slice the dragon fruit in half. Scoop out the flesh.

Chop the figs.

Put all the scooped out dragon fruit, figs, blackberries, raspberries, yogurt and pomegranate juice in the blender.

Pulse on low for a few seconds. Don’t overdo it though, you want the smoothie to be a little crunchy (yes, I know what I’m asking you to do – smooth and crunchy. Stop rolling your eyes and trust me)

Garnish with mint and slices of fruit.

Drink up!

  1. Yipeee… first to post..

  3. So you’ve resloved to make all of us jealous of those gorgeous berries and fruits, right? I once found dragon fruit at my local gourmet market and paid a king’s ransom for it! But when you’re into food, you cannot not try something that looks so incredibly enticing, right?

    Can you possibly try to grow the blackberries from the seeds and then maybe send me some seeds as well? :P I might just be going to Bangalore this month? Any trips there?

  9. Yumm Rajiika!

    P.S: Dragon fruit is available in Coimbatore! My aunt sent it to me a couple of times before I came away to Hyderabad. If you want, I’ll find out where she gets it from.

  11. Vietnamese dragon fruit tastes good, looks good, nutritious, and available year round.
    I just wonder why big companies like Fresh Del Monte Produce, Inc. and Chiquita Brands International Inc.
    are not bringing this great fruit to Americans & people of the world like they did with banana.

  12. The credit loans seem to be important for guys, which are willing to ground their own career. In fact, this is comfortable to get a college loan.

  16. I love dragon fruit, I encourage everyone to try it. Just make you you get the brightest pink one with green leaves. I hate when people think they don’t like it because they tried an over ripe one.
