How to peel a dragon fruit

Darling and I love fruit juice while Ethan unfortunately doesn’t want to go near it at all :(

We bought a food processor not too long ago that is able to crush ice so we can have ice-blended juice anytime in the comfort of our own home :D

Today we made dragon fruit juice. 

From the cactus family, dragon fruit is football-shaped and has a leathery, leafy skin that is deep red or pink. So how do you peel such a fruit?

You can just cut it half and scoop out the flesh.

Or you can just cut it in quarters and peel the skin off. I prefer to scoop out the flesh though.

I like to add some lemon or orange into my dragon fruit juice as it gives the juice a tangy twist.

Add some ice while blending and there, my super smooth ice-blended dragon juice is ready! Super refreshing on a hot, hot day :D

    Normally I’ll just scoop it out from the skin. :)

    …and tomorrow, what comes out of you, also that same colour. LOL!!!

    • //

      LOL! That’s why I refuse to have this fruit :p

  • //

    I think dragon fruit tastes heavenly. :p Must eat at least once a week 2 cool you down.

  • //

    I think it might be healthier if we consumer the skin as well? :p

  • //

    I prefer to cut to out.

    I prefer to cut it out.

    Nice! Yes, my children are like Ethan also. I don’t know why they don’t like the fruit juices that we blend ourselves. They can’t swallow all the fiber, foam and texture is too thick for them I guess.

    There is a white meat version of dragon fruit, but i still prefer the red meat one. I prefer to cut it into half and peel off the skin so that i can put the whole fruit into my mouth. *greedy*

  • //

    I prefer peeling than scooping the flesh! :p

  • //

    Like the first picture..easy! :)

  • //

    I love dragon fruits especially the red ones though sadly, it leaves my hand all purple for a few hours:D

  • //

    it’s good…full of vitamins, minerals n fibre!

  • //

    oops…i mean fiber :)

  • //

    I always just peel the skin when i peel dragon comes off super easily :D

  • //

    I also peel dragon fruit this way. I love taking dragon juice with milk. Yummy!

  • //

    haha! i don’t know how to peel dragon fruit also =P

  • //

    The red dragonfruit is more sweeter than the white flesh 1~

  • //

    Gwen loves dragon fruit. I should blend this juice for her one day.

  • //

    I love to scoop with spoon but sometimes, eating at home.. I like to peel off and eat with hand. I love the juice dripping down on my hand.. slurp~ Btw i love dragon fruit juice.. really healthy indeed ^_^

  • //

    normally i’ll cut into halves and peel the skin, and then cut into cubes.. lazy to blend the juice lah, straight away eat the fruit isn’t better?? hehehe..

  • //

    I want a cup too…..

  • //

    Cut into half and peel the skin and use a spoon to eat…. no blender at home :`(

  • //

    I love any fruit juice concoctions but most of the time, I prefer to just eat them. Blending requires too much work. I’m very lazy one… when I think about the washing up part, hmmm no need to juice lah :p

  • //

    tq for sharing..give me some idea for my niece baby shower party’s cocktail juice ;)
