Milkshakes are usually considered unhealthy. The reason is legit because of the amount of sugar that goes in it. And worse, in a few stores where the storekeepers claim to sell milkshakes, actually use ice-creams to prepare the shake which contains too much sugar. Yes, the milkshakes are unhealthy only if you have it from a store without knowing the ingredients.

So, pick your favorite fruit and add some milk and ice, your milkshake is ready. One of the most wanted fruits these days are dragon fruit, and it is also listed under exotic fruits. They are known for distinct scales that can be compared to the enchanting mythical dragon. They taste good and has a lot of advantages too.

How to make Dragon Fruit Shake

  • Peel the dragon fruits and slice them into pieces.

Trivia

Dragon fruit’s flavor is pretty sweet, a mix between a kiwi and pear and it has a mild crusty texture.

The cactus flower that produces dragon fruit survives only a single night. It blooms in the evening, ready for pollination by bats and moths, and wilts the very next day. The very brief pollination period, however, is sufficient for the plant to bear fruits.
