Dragon fruit or pitaya or pitahaya or strawberry pear is a sweet and fleshy fruit with high amount of vitamin C, vitamin B, fatty acids, fibre, antioxidants as well as carotene and protein. You can see three types of dragon fruits in market such as pink skinned fruit with white flesh, red skinned fruit with red flesh and yellow skinned fruit with white flesh.
In Singapore, it is very popular and easily available. In my home, hubby and kids are not a great fan of this exotic fruit except me 🙂 for that situation I tried this kind of experiments to please them to consume at least some amount of health benefits 🙂
