Why You Need A Dragon Fruit Smoothie

passion smoothieIn the words of François de La Rochefoucauld, “To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” Juice It Up!’s mission is to provide the freshest and most delicious products available and serve as advocates of healthy choices and lifestyles. One of the most electrifying and exhilarating products birthed from this mission is the pitaya smoothie. It is a one-of-a-kind, intelligent smoothie that is beloved by consumers everywhere because of its color, nutrients, and tasty experience.

Where Does the Pitaya Smoothie Come From?

Pitaya is an exotic dragon fruit from Central America. Juice It Up!’s pitaya specifically comes from Nicaragua. We partnered with Pitaya Plus, a social good organization that employs single mothers and helps farmers achieve organic certification. It’s a partnership that brings significant transformation to communities throughout Nicaragua and the United Sates. By being one of the first smoothie chains to infuse the pitaya super fruit into smoothies and bowls, we have empowered our customers with even more functional, delicious, and healthy food options.

The Pitaya Smoothie Has a Delightful & Alluring Color

Healthy eating advocates often recommend consumers to “eat the rainbow.” This simply means that one of the best ways to get essential vitamins and nutrients is by consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables. The most intriguing quality of the pitaya smoothie is its vibrant pink color. It is a visually phenomenal smoothie that is as healthy as it is bright, vivid, and attention grabbing.

The Pitaya Smoothie Is Immensely Nourishing

Every fruit has its strengths. Some fruits have more fiber than others, some may have more antioxidants or vitamin C. Yet, pitaya is a fruit that has the full circle of nutrients. That is why it’s called a super fruit. The main benefits of a pitaya smoothie are similar to an acai smoothie: healthy omegas and fibers from the seeds. The fiber helps the body digest food and stabilize blood sugar levels. It’s also a good source of magnesium as well, which most people do not get in their diet. It’s high in vitamin C which is a key player in strong immune systems and the antioxidants keep consumers looking youthful. If you’re looking for a low-sugar, highly-nutritional superfood to add to your diet, the pitaya smoothie may just be the best thing.
