Pitaya, or dragonfruit, is a delicious and exotic choice of fresh, juicy fruit. And because it comes frozen, you can enjoy it anytime of the year! Blend it with coconut water or juice and some frozen berries, and you have an irresistible snack. Pitaya is extremely rich in phytonutrients, vitamins C and B, helping to cleanse the body, eliminate free radicals and improving digestion too! Adding collagen protein also provides tons of benefits, including smoother skin, stronger teeth and enhanced athletic performance. And as a bonus: it’s beautiful and will make you beautiful!
