We decided to do our bit, too, and bring you five quick recipes you can whip up using the dragon fruit, which is also known as the pitaya, and has its origins in Mexico and Central America. It’s low-calorie and packed with antioxidants, and there’s every reason for you to be including the fruit with a spiky-scaly peel, in your diet.

Smoothie Just like kiwis, mangos and bananas, the dragon fruit is a pulpy fruit, so the easiest thing you’ll fix with one is a really healthy smoothie. Take:

One banana 

One kiwi

Half a dragon fruit, peeled (full if you want a flavour that overpowers the banana)

2-3 strawberries 

A pinch of kosher salt

1/4 cup coconut or almond milk

Put everything in a bullet blender and let it rip until the consistency is smooth. Drink up immediately.
