Organic Dragon Fruit is a delicious and healthy treat that everyone will love. You can put it in your smoothie, salad, or sprinkle on the morning cereal. Eat our dried dragon fruits as they are for a low-calorie, low-fat, and low-sugar snack in the middle of a day.

Dragon fruit (pitaya) grows on cactus plants and originates in Mexico. Today they are cultivated in many countries that can provide hot enough climate. The fruits are oval and covered in a ‘scaly’ hard coat of flesh, hence the name. The most popular variety of dragon fruits is red with white pulp, but there are also yellow+white and red+red pulp varieties. The pulp of the fruits contains seeds filled with essential omega-3 acids.

Pitahaya: Health and Diet Benefits

Dried dragon fruit is right for you because it contains a wide range of elements that benefit your health. It includes vitamins and minerals as well as a collection of potent antioxidants.

In the meantime, this fruit contains little ‘bad’ elements, so it makes a very healthy snack. Organic Dried Dragon Fruits are free of unhealthy saturated fats and have fewer calories and a lower sugar level compared to other tropical fruits.

Dragon fruit is very safe health-wise as there are no reported side effects and only two cases of an acute allergic reaction to it. Dou to the low level of fats and high nutritional value, this food can be included in any meal plan, so you can enjoy the sweet treat even when you are trying to lose weight.

Dried Dragon Fruit: Nutrients and Taste

Fresh dragon fruit contains a lot of vitamin C and iron, as well as manganese, potassium, and B vitamins. The dehydration process reduces this amount, but the food remains highly nutritious. Don’t forget about omega-3 essential fatty acids contained in the seeds.

This combination of elements makes dried dragon fruit a valuable food for vegans and everyone who dislikes fish and seafood (common sources of omega 3).

Dragon Fruit Recipes and Tips

You can use this product to make some dried dragon fruit tea or vitamin water. Reconstituting the dried pieces with water and mixing them with fresh and juicy fruits or veggies will create a great, nutritious juice.

The most common way to enjoy this treat is by making a dragon fruit smoothie. It can be any smoothie recipe once you add pitaya to the mix.

Dragon fruits have a mildly-sweet ‘neutral’ flavor, often compared to a cross between kiwis and pears. It means that you can add it to sports drinks for giving them a small nutritional boost as well as sweetening the flavor.

The dragon fruit taste allows including it in both sweet and sweet-sour sauces and even curries. Note that the pieces of dried fruit ‘soak up’ flavors very well, so store them away from spices.

  1. Very interesting flavour. Hadn’t had much experience with fresh dragon fruit, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The flavour seems to grow on me. Great customer service. Highly recommended to try once. Very unique and extremely hard to find. Never seen this offered in a raw, dried form before.
