Pitaya is a cool exotic fruit! And like all other fruits, it belongs in smoothies.
This smoothie is actually a bit more than a regular smoothie. This is a pitaya parfait! The term ‘parfait’ comes from the French word for perfect, and that’s exactly what this raw vegan layered fruit medley is!
This recipe does call for some slightly off-the-beaten path ingredients. The pitaya comes in the form of Pitaya Plus, though I’m sure you can substitute fresh pitaya if you’re so inclined. Lucuma powder is a low-glycemic sweetener, which you could also substitute for a more common alternative if you feel the need.
Pitaya is also known as dragon fruit. This parfait might look super adorable and pretty, but this thing is packed with the superlative power of these mythic beings! You will feel as limber as a lizard and as daring as a drake with all the goodness in this pitaya parfait!
