Maintaining after weight loss is very much an ongoing challenge. I still have those same desires for decadent desserts and other fat snacks.

Last week they had local organic dragon fruit, so I picked a few up to make something delicious! I was actually going to make a salad, but my sweet tooth, having a mind of its own, convinced me I needed a chocolate cupcake with dragon fruit buttercream… I know, crazy!  I made my mother-in-law’s amazing chocolate cupcake recipe and then altered my favorite buttercream recipe using dragon fruit and my goodness were they yummy!!

31. Dragon Fruit Banana Sherbet

For more than three years, I have been on the hunt for Dragon Fruit. Not a joke – I saw it on Tastespotting back in 2008, and thought it was the most beautiful fruit I had ever laid eyes on.  The described flavor of strawberry and kiwi?  Only made matters worse…

From: DoughMesstic

32. Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowls

These Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowls are a perfect breakfast, snack or dessert. The Pitaya Bowl craze is popular in juice shops for a reason – pitaya (dragon fruit) is full of antioxidants, and is a low calorie, nutrient dense fruit. A pitaya bowl is a great vegan or paleo breakfast option.

33. Vegan Dragon Fruit Cheesecake

Do you like cheesecakes? I love them since they are so creamy and delicious. This raw vegan cheesecake recipe is dairy free, egg free, refined sugar-free, gluten-free, plant-based, fruity, light, and would be a great treat for the summer. It doesn’t contain any cholesterol like non-vegan cheesecakes and it requires no baking. Big bonus in my opinion.

35. Dragon Fruit Smoothie

Dragon Fruit has always caught my eye in a grocery store. Its beautiful, vibrant color has always seemed to clash with its spiked, leathery skin. When I looked at it I had no idea how it tasted but finally took the leap and bought some last week after researching its uses.
