Pink Dragon fruit Popsicles
Hello & Happy Wednesday!!
Since I’ve been getting more and more into putting a twist on classic recipes I’ve also developed an affinity for color.
If a recipe can taste divine while also looking beautiful to the point that you literally want to eat the picture..
you’ve struck gold!
Although we all have to realize that when whipping up a recipe whether we have the time or not, it doesn’t have to be aesthetically pleasing.. Some of the most amazing tasting concoctions look horrendous (think sloppy sandwiches that don’t hold up, but taste like unicorns and rainbows)
The idea behind this recipe was to create something that’s bright, bold, and flavorful!
If you’re ever looking for a hue that can’t be achieved with any other fruit, you need to get your hands on Dragon Fruit aka “pitaya“. The flavor is neutral, which is per as it can take on whatever flavor you desire.
My only suggestion with exploring recipes with this fruit is to stick to ingredients that don’t darken the color, for example adding lots of darker fruits as it will just give off a less vibrant color.
This recipe is for you..
- 1 pack frozen pitaya
- 1/2 can coconut milk
- 1/2 lime (juice)
- 1 tsp lime zest
- 4 tbsp agave
- 1 tbsp arrowroot
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 1/2 bananas
- Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract or berry flavored stevia (its amazing)
- Freeze bananas
- in a sauce pan over medium heat add the coconut milk, lime zest, and squeeze of half a lime, heat to a boil, add the arrowroot, after 1 minute reduce to medium heat while continuously stirring the mixture. after 3-5 minutes remove from heat and set aside to cool.
- In a food processor blend together the frozen bananas and frozen dragon fruit. Add the agave and optional stevia or vanilla extract.
- Add the cooled coconut milk and lime mixture, blend again. Add more dargon fruit to achieve the desired shared.
- Place in the popsicle molds and top with fresh blueberries. Freeze for 3-6 hours. Enjoy!
- Top with any fruit, not just blueberries!
