Very Berry Pitaya Smoothie

After spending three weeks touring China and experiencing a different culture, it would be unthinkable to not write a few blog posts/ recipes dedicated to my travels. Having been inspired the many food markets and street vendors of Chengdu; Guilin; Guangzhou; Hong Kong; and Yangshuo, I decided to buy some local food products and experiment around with them. Here’s the first recipe I’d like to share with you all: a dragonfruit and lychee-based smoothie! Although pink pitaya and lychee are difficult to source outside of South America and Asia, you can try track them down at Asian markets or the worldwide aisle in big supermarkets. Alternatively, you can buy powdered pitaya in pouches to get that truly gorgeous, deep pink colour ❤
