Silk® Oatmilk

Did you notice the product packaging? Silk® OatYeah™, which I’ve shared in recipes like Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie, Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl, and Blueberry Baked Oatmeal, has a fresh look in Silk® Oatmilk. The oatmilk is the same creamy, rich drink – free from dairy, gluten, nuts, soy, and artificial flavors.

I love using Silk® Oatmilk in smoothies, in coffee, and in baked goods, too. This Extra Creamy variety is a favorite!

All about Dragon Fruit

Dragon fruit sounds exotic, doesn’t it? Native to South and Central American and grown in Southeast Asia, dragon fruit is also called pitaya. The flesh inside this dramatic cactus fruit is soft and filled with tiny black seeds. The color of the flesh can be red, dark pink, white, or even yellow.

The taste is actually rather mild which surprised me. It is soft like a kiwi and mild like a pear. The flavor really doesn’t match its stunning exterior, but the real treasure comes in its nutritional value. Dragon fruit is a good source of fiber, magnesium, iron, and vitamin C.

For this dragon fruit smoothie recipe I used frozen chunks of deep pink dragon fruit along with frozen raspberries and topped it with freshly cut dragon fruit that had a white interior. Fresh dragon fruit can be pricey but I was so curious about the taste and texture so I tried it out. Frozen fruit is economical and perfect for smoothies.

To prepare fresh dragon fruit, slice the fruit from top to bottom. Scoop out the flesh or use a small knife to cut away the pink skin. Dice and serve.

Ingredients

  • Silk® Extra Creamy Oatmilk: This oatmilk is my choice for a dairy free option in smoothies. It is so creamy that I don’t need to add a banana to thicken the smoothie so if you are looking for a smoothie without banana give Silk oatmilk a try.
  • Frozen Dragon Fruit: It’s common to find this fruit from a type of cactus in the frozen section of many grocery stores. I love it for its deep color and nutritional value.
  • Frozen Raspberries: Add more flavor to this fruit smoothie with frozen raspberries. Other berries or even mango could be used instead.
  • Lime: The juice of one lime adds a citrus flavor that brightens the drink.
  • Chia Seeds: Adding a few tablespoons of chia seeds to a smoothie is a good way to boost your fiber, plant-based protein, and other minerals and antioxidants. They are a good thickener, too.

I didn’t need to include any additional sugar in this smoothie. If you’d like you may add honey to suit your taste, but, for me, the level of sweetness was just right.

Steps for making smoothies

Add the ingredients to your high-speed blender then blend until smooth.

You may add additional Silk® Oatmilk to make a thinner smoothie. If you want to create a dragon fruit smoothie bowl, you could either add a frozen banana or decrease the liquid by half a cup to make a thicker mixture.

Other add-ins:

  • Try blueberries or blackberries instead of raspberries
  • Add a handful of cashews or almonds
  • Swap hemp seeds for chia seeds
  • Add a few tablespoons of almond butter or peanut butter
