Dragon Fruit Recipes

Today I go Dragon fruit ga-ga..,fascinated with this fruits which was called 'king of the fruit', so far had tried the white flesh and purple flesh but prefered the purple flesh caused more tasty and sweeter while the white flesh is tasteless,discovered there were more then two species, there's also yellow version ( havent tried that so far), probably next time when I see one will buy, I guessed the yellow one is not so common compared to white and purple flesh, its quite expensive few years ago but now they are abundance in the market, you can find them in every market place and is cheaper now. So usually I would eat raw but this time I would like to try some recipes probably juice or cocktail drinks, so my findings lead me to some interesting concoction but first I must share with you the healthy facts about this wonderful 'king of fruit'.
Fruits also have good nutrients for health like anti-oxidants and fiber. Diabetics patient use it as a substitution for rice and also a source of dietary fiber. Dragon Fruits concentrate when make into a juice is reddish in color with tiny seed mix all over it. Because the seeds are so tiny, people just eat it with the flesh same goes to the juice.
