1. Starbucks Dragon Drink

The Starbucks Dragon drink is a blend of milk, orange juice, and three whole dragon tears.

This is the ultimate in sweet drinks.

Why three dragon tears?

Well, it’s one of my favorite ingredients to add to drinks!

It makes them so creamy and adds a unique flavor.

The dragon tears are also rich in vitamins A and C, which make them great for people who don’t eat enough fruits or veggies.

For those craving something slightly exotic, this drink will surely tickle your taste buds.

2. Dragon Fruit Sorbet

You’ll love the bright and bold flavor of dragon fruit in this vegan sorbet.

It’s sweet, tart, creamy, and fantastic on its own or with a scoop of ice cream.

It takes just 30 minutes to make these adorable treats.

They’re easy to customize with toppings such as chopped kiwi, cherries, pineapple juice, lime wedges, and more.

Serve them with a sprig of fresh mint for an extra kick (or skip it all together !).

3. Banana & Dragon Fruit Smoothie

This smoothie is the best way to enjoy dragon fruit.

It contains two of your favorite fruits, banana and dragon fruit.

Since this smoothie has a lot more ingredients than most, it’s not for the faint of heart.

However, you won’t want to avoid it for fear of missing out on any tasty treats.

That being said, even if you can’t stomach anything else in this smoothie, I think these ingredients alone will be enough to make you drool.

I mean, did I mention that this smoothie contains frozen bananas?

All you need are three simple ingredients to make this super healthy and delicious drink: watermelon ice cubes, dragon fruit pulp, and bananas.

4. Red Dragon Fruit Cakes

Red dragon fruit cakes are a treat for the senses.

They’re crisp, buttery, sweet, and packed with fruity goodness.

In fact, these have more dried fruit than cake !

These bite-sized treats are done in two layers – one is the filling that’s a light vanilla bean filling with powdered sugar on top.

The other is a cinnamon-spiced cookie crust that gets covered in a yummy ganache.

You can enjoy them as they are or make them even more decadent by adding some glaze or whipped cream to the middle.

5. Dragon Fruit Mojito

You’ll be surprised at how simple and easy-to-make this dragon fruit mojito is.

It takes just five minutes to make and uses only ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Topped with passion fruit juice, lime, and a dash of grenadine, it’s refreshingly cool but not too sweet.

It doesn’t taste like the real thing, but it’s still delicious.

6. Dragon Fruit Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is a sweet breakfast that’s super easy to make and only takes five minutes to prepare.

You can whip this up for your next Sunday brunch, or you can keep it on hand as a healthy, filling lunch.

There are no eggs or dairy in this chia pudding recipe, which means it’s great for anyone looking for a lower-calorie treat.

It’s also vegan and gluten-free.

And if you need the dessert fast, this chia pudding is the way to go.

7. Dragon Fruit Ice Cream

I’m not usually a fan of ice cream dipped in fruit.

But this dish is different.

It’s sweet, creamy, and so delicious.

Plus, it looks awesome!

The combination of dragon fruit and vanilla ice cream is a match made in heaven.

It combines the sweetness of the fruit with the lightness of the ice cream to create one incredible treat.

Make this recipe for your next potluck or party.

It’s sure to please everyone who tries it.

8. Dragon Fruit Jam

If you love dragon fruit, you’ll immediately fall in love with this jam.

Typically considered a tropical fruit, it’s a little bit sweeter than the others.

It has a nice floral flavor, which is more subtle than the tartness of the pineapple.

This recipe uses maple syrup and blueberry juice for extra sweetness.

I like to add some fresh raspberries to mine for a pop of color.

9. Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie

Dragons fruit is a traditional garnish for smoothies, but it’s so good you won’t use it as a main ingredient.

It has the same tart and fruity flavors as dragon fruit, with just a hint of sweetness.

The other ingredients in this smoothie are pretty standard for making creamy smoothies, but dragon fruit adds such an extra layer of flavor that makes this one irresistible.

I like to serve this one with a sprinkling of Dragon Fruit Powdered Sugar if I want another flavor accent.

But you can also add cinnamon or vanilla powder instead.

10. Dragon Fruit Guacamole

You’re going to want to make this dragon fruit guacamole for a wedding reception or any party where you need something sweet and juicy.

The only thing I don’t love about it is the trouble of peeling the fruit, but that’s easily remedied with a little lemon juice.

And if you have some frozen dragon fruit left over, that adds another layer of flavor.

You can also throw in some diced mangoes or other red fruits at no extra cost.

If you make this ahead of time, it will keep better and be more flavorful.

11. Dragon Fruit Panna Cotta Party Shooters

If you’re looking for a whimsical and sweet treat, then you need to try these dragon fruit shooters!

They’re the perfect bite-sized desserts that everyone will love.

And they taste amazing, too.

So they’re even more delectable!

Plus, they require no baking at all.

Just pour them into your glass pitcher, add some crushed ice, and watch them float away.

12. Red Dragon Fruit Panna Cotta

Red Dragon fruit is a South American variety of apricot.

It’s not as sweet as some varieties, but it’s still just as flavorful.

This recipe is for the most amazing panna cotta anyone could ask for.

The flavor profile is a little different than most – citrus, vanilla, and almond.

But the creamy texture and beautiful color make up for that.

The best part?

This recipe only takes 30 minutes to make!

13. Red Dragon Fruit Margarita

I’ve always been a fan of margaritas, but the first time I tried this one, it was just okay .

It still has an amazing taste, though.

What makes this recipe stand out is the lime.

It’s added to the mix so that it can soak up all that yummy red wine and enhance its flavor.

Other than that, there aren’t any specific ingredients or techniques needed to make it.

Simple syrup (lime juice + water) will do in a pinch.

You have your choice of fruit for this one – pineapple, mangoes, peaches, or apricot – and you only need four minutes from start to finish.

14. Tropical Mango Dragon Fruit Smoothie

This smoothie is the perfect way to start your day.

It’s a cool and fresh start, but it’ll keep you full all day long !

It’s thick and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness from mangoes and dragon fruit .

And the cayenne gives it a bit of heat, bringing out all those flavors.

It doesn’t need much more than that to make it delicious.

15. Dragon Fruit Cheesecake

I’m super into cheesecake these days, and I have no idea why.

It’s the perfect dessert for a lazy afternoon.

The cake is heavy on the lemon and citric punch, and it has such a great crumb to boot.

However, this recipe also uses white wine, which you should always use in any kind of cheesecake because it makes all the difference.

16. Dragon Fruit Jujubes

This recipe comes from the Garden of Eden and is so good, it’ll make you want to eat your vegetables.

The Dragon fruit is juicy and fresh, not overly sweet.

It has a slight tang that makes it taste wonderfully tropical.

I like mine with a splash of lemon juice or lime juice.

If you like to balance out the sweetness, try using honey or maple syrup instead of sugar.

17. Strawberry Dragon Fruit Margaritas

I’m a sucker for strawberries, especially after hot summer days.

However, when they’re in season and sweet and juicy like these dragon fruit margaritas, I can’t help myself.

They’re creamy, cold, and so refreshing.

I love to serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

If you want something heartier and more full-flavored, try using some balsamic glaze.

18. Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Now, this smoothie bowl is absolutely worth a try if you’re looking for something sweet and refreshing.

This one-bowl wonder features three ingredients: banana, berries, and dragon fruit.

They’re blended up with vanilla yogurt and topped with whipped cream.

It takes only 15 minutes to make it, but there are also some other health benefits that go along with its sweetness.

The recipe recommends drinking it on an empty stomach – no milk or dairy products involved.

That way, it’s good for digestion.

They’ll keep your guests cool as well as adding natural sweetness to your drinks.

The cucumber is infused with lime juice and honey, along with dragon fruit pieces, making it super sweet.

It’s a great way to enjoy this delicious fruit that won’t harm your waistline.

Plus, it makes a pretty simple glass of lemonade (or margarita).

The combination of mango and dragonfruit is a match made in heaven.

The two fruits have such an amazing flavor that you can’t help but love them together.

It’s sweet , sour, and super refreshing ! It tastes great with any kind of ice cream.

Honestly, anything will work in this smoothie.

You can even add cinnamon for an extra kick!

These mini dragon fruit treats are a real hit with kids and adults alike.

Filled with dark chocolate, coconut, and toasted coconut, they’re sweetly nutty and full of flavor.

Each one is a little bit hard, so you’ll need to get the right size for your child.

You can make them without frosting if that’s what you prefer, but they’re even more tasty with a little drizzle of melted white chocolate.

24. Dragonfruit Lemonade

The last thing I want is a lemonade that tastes like it’s made with artificial flavorings.
