How to: cut a dragon fruit
1) Look at it for a moment and soak in its beauty. Seriously, it was hard to cut into this thing.
2) Cut it in half and soak in its beauty once again.
3) Like an avocado, make cube slices with a sharp knife stopping when you hit the peel. Take a spoon and go around the outside of the fruit, applying pressure to pop out the cubes. Put the cubes back inside the shell for a pretty presentation.
That's it! It's very mild and refreshing, similar in texture to a kiwi. I really enjoyed it.
I had this alongside a frosted vanilla chai breakfast cookie (1/2 cup oats, 1 tbsp sunbutter, 1 tbsp rice protein, 1/8 cup soymilk, 1 tbsp coconut, chopped cashews, 1 tsp chai spice blend, 1/2 tsp vanilla) topped with cinnamon banana soft serve.
For the chai spice blend, I mixed together:
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cardamom
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp ground anise
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
It smelled and tasted exactly like drinking chai tea. I LOVED this breakfast cookie creation, and now I'm inspired to make actual cookies using this spice blend. If you make it and want to actually have chai tea, just combine 1 tsp with any black tea and drink up!
I'm feeling incredibly uninspired for dinner ideas and I don't know how to correct it. I've had failed ideas and recipes and I just don't know what to make or what I want. I wonder what will get me out of this food rut because it's honestly bumming me out.
