dragon-fruit-juice-recipe Simple juice with red dragon fruit also known as pitaya fruit. I am very choosy when it comes to trying out new things. Though we are here for almost 11 years now in SG, I have not tried many things that’s available easily here. Right from food to these fruits. I have seen these fruits in wet market and grocery stores, but only once bought this fruit. Not the same variety but the white variety. I could not swallow the fruit with so many small black seeds in it. Even for Kiwi fruit it happened the same way. But these days I am used to it. I like kiwi fruit these days. Dragon fruit or pitaya, yet to get comfortable with. I made this juice to begin with, I liked to eat as such too. I am sure these days it is available in India too, you can try this one. pitaya-juice

  1. Hi Raks,
    Juice looks so eye catchy.I saw this fruit but never bought as iam afraid how it tastes.how does it taste?can this be used in fruit custard too?

    1. It tastes good, you can buy bravely ;) But not sure how it will be in custard though. Also it makes the custard so pink with this colour.

    2. Thank you. Will surely try this

  2. The one we get here is white inside... love the color of the juice...

  3. Very attractive.. same thought..this fruit is commonly found here too (Brunei) but not once have I had the intention to buy it !

  5. Nice one
    Ijus scoop with a spoon and eat. I am a lover of these fruits rambutan, longan, lychee and dragon fruit. Do try longan payasam from my blog.

  6. Got a dragon fruit for the first time to try this recipe.. When I cut the fruit, I see the colour inside to be white, instead of pink..did I do something wrong in picking up the fruit?

  7. It's just another variety :)
