Pears add a lovely texture and sweetness to this dragon fruit smoothie. Pears have more nutrients per calorie than calories per nutrient (surprising since they are so sweet). They are what I call a Smart Carb. and are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, copper & vitamin K. They are often considered hypoallergenic fruit that is less likely to produce an adverse response than other fruits by healthcare practitioners making them a great first fruit fed to infants as a safe way to start.
Wild Blueberries – Wild blueberries are a tasty superfood that for centuries has been a part of the native North American’s diet. These small wild blueberries are almost always found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. I love wild blueberries and almost always have some in my freezer so that I can add them to this dragon fruit smoothie or some of my other smoothies.
Chia seeds – These tiny chia seeds have soared to becoming one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. It is no surprise that chia means “strength” in the Mayan language and they are strengthening as you will see from their many health benefits. They are a healthy addition to this dragon fruit smoothie.
Stevia – The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. As I don’t use sugar for my smoothies I often use stevia which is the healthy option and what I used for this dragon fruit berry smoothie. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed.

I used coconut milk in this dragon fruit smoothie to add the liquid and creaminess to the drink. Coconut milk has recently become very popular and is a tasty alternative to cow’s milk. You can now easily find coconut milk in most grocery stores.
Coconut yogurt adds a creamy texture to this dragon fruit smoothie. I buy this at the supermarket. and I get the unsweetened one so that I can sweeten it as needed without sugar.
