An excellent source of magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, fiber and iron, red-flesh dragon fruit (AKA pitaya) is a wonderful addition to your morning meal! This exotic fruit is also rich in antioxidants and contains many phytonutrients. Blend with your favorite dairy-free yogurt (like coconut!) and sprinkle with superfoods – we added hemp seeds and raw pistachios here.
