Dragon fruit isn’t just pretty to look at, it’s also brimming with good-for-you benefits like protein, fiber and tons of vitamin C. That’s why we couldn’t be more excited to share that the vibrantly pink superfood is finally making its Pressed menu debut. Now available as a nutrient-rich bowl or as Freeze vegan soft serve, we can’t wait for you to try this uniquely delicious snack. Here’s what you need to know...
Dragon Fruit 101
So, what is dragon fruit anyway? The spiky, bright pink and green fruit is also known as pataya (or pitahaya) or strawberry pear. Dragon fruit is actually a cactus fruit primarily found in Asia, Mexico, Central America, and South America. And while you might assume that such a wild-looking food would have an equally wild flavor, the taste of dragon fruit is surprisingly delicate and sweet — kind of like a combination of kiwi and pear. Yum!
Dragon fruit is considered a superfood for a reason — it’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients to help you power through your day, including protein, fiber and vitamin C.
If you want to squeeze more plant-based goodness into your day while also entertaining your taste buds, this pink powerhouse just might check all the boxes.
