Dragon Smoothie

The rich red in this Smoothie comes from a dragon fruit. I was expecting the white flesh pitted with black seeds but instead got this awesome surprise:


It's got an earthy taste,  almost beetroot like! Apparently these beauties are full of goodness, rich in antioxidants, they contain vitamin C, several B vitamins, Calcium, iron and phosphorus and the seeds are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

Ingredients
3-4 tbsp dragonfruit flesh
small banana
handful of baby spinach
handful grated carrot
handful of seeds (I used pumpkin + sunflower)
one date, pitted
1 cup filtered water

Throw it all together in a powerful blender (I used a Vitamix) and viola.
