After a couple weeks of having plain toast for breakfast or, even worse, not having breakfast at all because I was too busy running out of the house on time, I’ve decided it’s time to get back to my healthy habit of making smoothies.
Never one that was afraid of a challenge, and because I knew I’d be going back to the gym this week, I decided that there was no better place to start than a protein-packed smoothie thanks to Greek yogurt.
Of course, I’m also always a big fan of using what else I have around the house–this time it included dragon fruit and Meyer lemons that I recently received as a gift from my parents. Sure, it might sound like a weird combination but what I loved about this smoothie is that both raspberries (which I bought) and the dragon fruit have a ton of Vitamin C and antioxidants. Tell me, is there any better way to start the morning? Nope!
- 1 dragon fruit, halved & scooped out
- 1 (10 ounce bag) frozen raspberries
- 3 Meyer lemons, juiced
- 1 (17.6 ounce container) Greek yogurt
- Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender, add 2 cups of water (as needed) and mix. Separate into easy-to-serve containers. Makes 6 cups.
Have you ever used dragon fruit in a smoothie?
