You Asked, We Got Answers: How To Eat A Dragon Fruit.

I always stare at dragon fruit when I see it in the grocery aisle. There is something appealing about them. Especially when I see them on Brooke Lark’s Instagrarm. Yum!

I figure if I am hesitant but curious about dragon fruit someone else is too. So I’ve done a little recon and here is what I’ve learned.

Dragon fruits have a surprising number of phytonutrients. They are rich in antioxidants, they contain vitamin C (equivalent to 10 percent of the daily value), polyunsaturated (good) fatty acids, and several B vitamins for carbohydrate metabolism, as well as carotene and protein.

As for the fruit itself I learned that the skin is not edible only the flesh inside. They are similar to a kiwi fruit. They are both filled with small seeds that are edible, which add a little texture, but for the most part they are unnoticeable.

So all there was left to learn is how to cut and serve it. Instagram to the rescue!

­čÖé If I can do it, you can. Don’t be shy. Oh, and Bon Appetit!
