Hi Pamela,

If you love eating pudding, you'll surely love this dragon fruit pudding version. The dragon fruit flesh has sweet taste though it has grainy texture because of the seeds on it. Definitely worth trying.

Hello Kyler,

As an alternative for a healthier option of sweetener, you can use honey to make your own homemade dragon fruit pudding.

I have never had dragon fruit but I think I would like it. This recipe sounds good to me.

You had me up until adding sugar, trying to make me break my diet and get fat! I like dragon fruit in my protein shakes.
