Dragonfruit shake!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hello friends and fellow foodies!!

The pitajaya, pitahaya, pitahayas, Pitaya or dragon fruit is not very common in Dominican cuisine but in the last years we have begun to see it with more frequency in the markets and to have ideas, because of its beautiful and brilliant color. It is the fruit of some cactus varieties and it offers big potentialities in the kitchen.

The texture of the pitajaya is similar to that of the kiwi although its flavor is a lot sweeter. The colors that we find more frequently are a shiny fuchsia and white.

Today I share the first idea that came to mind. If you have more ideas send them our way!


  • 1 pitajaya.
  • 1 banana.
  • 1 spoonful of sugar.
  • 1 cup of evaporated milk.
  • 1 spoonful of vanilla.
  • Ice.


Beat all the ingredients in the blender and enjoy cold!

    I’ve never had dragonfruit and am not familiar with it’s taste, but this sure looks beautiful!

    • It’s also very rare here. I tasted it for the first time a few months ago and I didn’t even know what to do with it. It’s very sweet though and with a banana shake base comes out great! Thanks for your comments Bill!
