If you’ve never tried Dragon Fruit before, you don’t know what you’re missing. Dragon Fruit is also called a pitaya and is actually an exotic cactus fruit.

Your dragon fruit may have a white center or a bright pink center depending on the version that your store carries. My stores only carry the one with the white center.

Not only does this work if you’re searching for simple breakfast ideas, it’s the perfect healthy dessert!

Starting your day with a nutritious breakfast can keep you energized and satiated throughout the morning. Moreover, it’s a great way to get essential nutrients into your daily diet. Here are some simple and healthy breakfast ideas that are also incredibly tasty.

  1. I did not realize they had added this to Netflix. My kids will love to watch it. Love your idea for the Dragon Parfait. Sounds delish!
  2. I've actually  never had dragon fruit before, but that parfait looks amazing. We love the How to Train A Dragon movies in our house :)
  3. When I'm trying to theme foods for my kids, I normally end up with desserts based off of their favorite characters.  This parfait would be such a fun, more nutritious way to bring the dragons home with us.
  4. I've never tried dragon fruit but I'm not much for fruit (but huge veggie fan). Love the lunch box. I have a soft side red and pink Hello Kitty lunch box, which I love.
