Recipe inspiration

I drove to Florence, Arizona for a blogging conference last week. Kat and Melinda from Home.Made.Interest said they were going to LB Cantina for Margaritas and Mexican food…count me it!!

I always order Shredded Beef Chimichangas and Mango Margaritas. 😉

I woke up Thursday morning excited to learn! My friend Deb (Cooking on the Front Burner) and I drove to the Windmill Winery where the actual conference was taking place, and look how gorgeous the barn is.

Everyone’s jaw dropped as they walked in the door. 🙂

The Keynote Speaker was Aubrey Cota from Real Housemoms, and she is amazing! I was frantically taking down notes the entire time!

We had a morning snack provided by Melissa’s Produce…which I don’t even remember right now, but I do remember the Jack Fruit (the big giant green ones) and the Dragon Fruit in the front.

The Jack Fruit weren’t ripe, so we didn’t get to try them…..but the Dragon Fruit became the inspiration for the Dragon Fruit Smoothie!

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • I did not use a banana in my smoothie, I am allergic to them, so the amount of milk needed will vary.
  • Some dragon fruit have pink flesh and some have white like mine did. There is no way to tell from the outside unless they are marked.
  • They have a mellow flavor and teeny, tiny seeds. They tell me that they taste similar to kiwi, but I am severely allergic to those as well and won’t be doing a comparison test to see if they are correct.
  • The sweetness of your berries will affect the sweetness of your smoothie, so adjust the honey amount to your liking.

  1. Every time I visit the local Asian Market I’ve been tempted to buy a dragon fruit (probably due to their unusual shape and colors) but I didn’t know what to do with them. Thanks for sharing this recipe – now I’ll buy one and make a smoothie! Blessings, Janet
