Dragon Fruit Cocktail Recipe
The Felene Dragon fruit cocktail is named after the dragon fruit with its spiny “dragon-claw” appearance. But, despite its fierce and fiery name, it’s anything but. The dragon fruit has a subtle pear/kiwi taste and a texture closer to kiwi with the presence of the black, crunchy, oily seeds. Be sure to pick your dragon fruit ripe as this will enhance the flavor and sweetness. Look for fruit that is heavy for its size, ripe dragon fruit is packed with juice. Pick-up a few of the same size and choose the heaviest.
Dragon fruit has vitamins C and B. The flesh is a good source of fiber, but the seeds are where most of the good lives. Unlike some seeds that must be ground for your body to access the inner goodness, the natural bacteria in your gut can break down the fibrous shell of dragon fruit seeds and unlock their prebiotic benefits.
