Mango Strawberry Greek Yogurt and Dragon Fruit Green Smoothie

Life has been busy, exciting, tiring and overwhelming, but I have managed to still stay on track with things. I can't wait to see my family in India! There are many things that need to be done. I need 48 hours in a day! Today I'll go back to the mall to get some shopping done. I'll need some energy and the best recipe for boosting your energy levels up is to eat fruits, vegetables and nuts!

I don't have any problem with dairy/non dairy products or any kind of allergies but I  prefer to not use  them in my green smoothies. Sometimes you find it tastes not like what you usually expect it to. But once you are used to it, you will love it because of the way it benefits  your body. I make different green and fruit smoothies everyday with a variety of  fruits and vegetables available in my fridge.

I have never tried dragon fruit before, so I bought one and used in my smoothie and I just loved it. What an amazing fruit!
