Pretty In Pink
When you're over the avocado boat, hop aboard Train Dragon Fruit.
Tropical Dragon Fruit — the juicy, magenta-colored Central American delicacy — kind of reminds me of that hot blonde hunk you went to high school with. Beautiful, dreamy, delicious from afar, but super boring and bland in the actual flesh. (Personally, I find the taste totally yucky). So what to do so that this edible work of art doesn't go to waste? Naturally, I turned to Chef Deena. "Use the actual fruit as a bowl," she advises. "Slice it in half, scoop out the insides, fill it with coconut berry-flavored yogurt, cherries, raspberries, pomegranates, and dried hibiscus petals. You can also add in a scoop or two of the actual fruit if you're feeling ambitious— dragon fruit is high in vitamin c, lycopene and fiber." YUM. Basically, the embodiment of a pink sands beach in a bowl.
