Dragon’s Blood Protein Shake

Dragon’s Blood Protein Shake

The name of this protein shake conjures up images of Kung Fu masters and their students battling to the death in a small town somewhere in China. In reality, it’s actually somewhat less romantic—the dragon fruit (also called a pitaya) grows on a cactus-like tree that originally hails from the Americas. The fruits look like scaly little dragons, hence the name. After seeing hundreds of photos of a fruit that’s supposed to be red on the outside and white on the inside with black seeds, that’s what I expected when I bought one and cut into it.
