Pitaya Parfaits

DSC_9153xblog

Ahh just one of the many many things I love about raw foods, the COLORS!  So bright, vivid and full of life and nutrients!  What’s not to love?  These little parfaits are made with pitaya (aka red dragon fruit), which gives them that gorgeus magenta color.  For this recipe I used Pitaya Plus, which is an organic raw vegan frozen dragon fruit packet.  This has been a wonderful fruit to add into my smoothies and desserts.  This superfood is jam packed with antioxidants to help offset and fight free radicals that can cause damage to your cells.  You can get 150% of your vitamin C in one packet of Pitaya Plus!  It is also a good source of fiber, magnesium and B vitamins.
