How to Make Dragon Fruit Apple Lemonade
Ever since I was a kid, dragon fruit, also known as pitahaya or pitaya, has been one of my favorite fruits. There are different varieties of dragon fruit that are grown in different places. The color of the fruit's skin can be pink or yellow. The flesh may be pink, red, or white. The outer texture can be spiky or smooth. In most places, this fruit is relatively expensive. No wonder—because it offers so many health benefits.
In addition to dragon fruit, I really love apple. I believe in the old adage: "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Usually, I have plenty of apples inside my refrigerator.
I also love citrus fruits, including lemon. Sometimes I will have plain water with just a bit of fresh lemon.
Since I often have all three of these fruits in my refrigerator, I thought of combining these ingredients to create a refreshing, healthy drink. This is my recipe for dragon fruit apple lemonade. It's easy, and it's delicious!
