Dragon fruit is a beautiful fruit. The plant is actually a type of cactus, and the fruit comes in 3 colors: 2 have pink skin, but with different colored flesh (one white, the other red), while another type is yellow with white flesh. Dragon fruit tastes  sweet, with a flavor between kiwi and pear.

Dragon Fruit benefits:

1. Dragon Fruit is low in cholesterol content and has no unhealthy cholesterol fats that harm the human body.

2. The fibers in the fruit help to get better bowel movements. It is also a good solution for constipation.

3. Dragon fruit is a natural source of antioxidants.

4. Dragon Fruit is advantageous for cardiovascular health and also helps to decrease the irritation of joint.

I usually make Dragon Fruit Juice  or ice-cream for my kids.  Today I am trying on a new recipe- Dragon Fruit sorbet. My good friend passed this lovely and easy recipe to me which my family absolutely love it.

Dragon Fruit Sorbet preparation

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe magenta-fleshed dragon fruit
  • 1/4 cup cold water (optional -if fruit is not ripe)
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons sugar (optional)

Preparation:

blend

  1. Place dragon fruit in a blender. Add water (if fruit isn’t  juicy), lemon juice and sugar. Sometimes the fruit is sweet enough not need additional sugar. blend until smooth.
  2. Pour smooth puree into a shallow freezing glass bowl and freeze it.  It takes about 2 hours to freeze. Allow about 10 minutes at room temperature for the sorbet to soften before serving. This process and recipe works with most fruits.
