Open dragonfruit

White dragonfruit can be peeled by hand. Red too, but it will stain your hands.

Dragonfruit can also be sliced open and enjoyed by the spoonful.

All you need is a large spoon, knife and cutting surface.

Add to a blender for a slushy drink or chop to make a salad truly special (leafy or fruity).

 

Step 1

Using a serrated knife, cut open a dragonfruit across the middle or from top to bottom.

You could peel the fruit from here. Your kids might like doing that.

Step 2

Take a serving spoon and scoop out the white or red speckled insides. Make sure to take off any residual pink skin.

Step 3

Add to a blender for a cooling drink.

Or flip the flat side down on the cutting surface. Slice, chop or blend to your heart’s content.

Save the skin to use as a bowl.
