Refreshing white fleshed dragon fruit with yogurt, granola, and fresh mint.
Dragon fruit has many health benefits and is not well known even though it’s delicious! There are three main dragon fruit types that I will list later on in this post.
I hope you enjoy this parfait, but do be aware that not everyone likes dragon fruit although it’s hard not to like!
Dragon fruit types
In this recipe I used red dragon fruit, but to know what dragon fruit I’m talking about you will need this short guide.
Yellow dragon fruit. Yellow dragon fruit has the same flesh as red dragon fruit (white flesh), but the skin is yellow.
Red dragon fruit. The skin of red dragon fruit is of course “red”.
Red pitaya dragon fruit. Pitaya dragon fruit is large and has hot pink-ish red flesh that is sweeter then the other types. Pitaya is my personal favorite although I used red dragon fruit.
Use the yogurt of your choice, that means vegan, dairy free, dairy, coconut, almond, gluten free! The possibilities are endless!
