Navitas Naturals Dragonfruit Slices

Nothing makes us happier than introducing another unique superfood to the marketplace. Our new organic Dragonfruit Slices unleash the sweet flavor of the tropical superfruit in a chewy, dried-fruit leather style. More than just a tasty snack, the exotic-looking Dragonfruit also provides a well-rounded nutrition profile that includes omega 3's, antioxidants, protein, iron, fiber, and an abundance of vitamins and minerals. Our purple slices taste similar to pears, mangos and kiwifruits.

Dragonfruit Slices have a delicious sweet flavor and a chewy texture that's ideal as a delicious snack right out of the bag. The taste of this superfruit is similar to pears, mangos and kiwifruits. Like any dried fruit, purple Dragonfruit Slices can be enjoyed as an ingredient in many healthy recipes including salads, trail mixes, oatmeal, cereals, desserts and baked goods.

Navitas Naturals Dragonfruit Slices are raw, certified organic, gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified and vegan. To create this unique superfruit snack, small-scale farmers in the lush tropical regions of Thailand select the finest red dragonfruit that is sustainably harvested from night-blooming cactus plants. The red variety is the sweetest and highest quality. The strange-looking dragonfruit has interesting origins. The fruit is created only if the cactus flowers, which bloom for just one night, are pollinated after dark by bats, moths and nocturnal creatures. The soft, pulpy center of each Dragonfruit is speckled with tiny black seeds, and this fibrous sweet pulp is carefully removed in slices that are sun dried at low temperatures to preserve the nutrients.

Called "kaeo mangkon" (dragon crystal) by indigenous people in Thailand, Dragonfruit is famous for its bright colors and odd eye-catching shape - but it's also well known for its powerful nutrition profile. Dragonfruit is a strong source of vitamins, including C and B, and it contains an abundance of key minerals including iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Dragonfruit Slices provide 2g of protein per serving, which is a lot for a fruit, and they're also a rich source of essential fatty acids including omega-3. Dragonfruit offers many antioxidants including complex phytoalbumins and lycopene. It's a bonus that the fruit is low in calories, and it's comprised of complex carbohydrates that can easily be broken down by the body.

Getting enough protein throughout the day is simple, but getting the right kind of protein - that doesn't contain bad cholesterol, digestive irritants, heavy metals or acid-forming compounds – is more challenging. Thankfully, drinking smoothies is an easy way to consume the best kind of amino acids - from plant-based foods such as hemp. This protein-rich Blueberry Hemp Smoothie recipe is part of our 60 Second Smoothie video series by Julie Morris. We're offering 30% off hemp powder and hemp seed this week (March 6-13).

Protein is often difficult to digest, especially in large quantities. That is one of the reasons behind feeling heavy and tired after a large meal. It is beneficial to consume small amounts of protein throughout the day, and to choose easily-digestible plant-based sources such as hemp. An optimal complete protein source, hemp protein tops the health charts because of its impressive credentials: minimally processed; nutrient dense; easy to digest; and environmentally-friendly. Additional amino acids from flaxseeds and non-dairy yogurt help give the Blueberry Hemp smoothie recipe a diverse and well-rounded protein boost.

Spring is almost here, and that means it's time to get outdoors and hit the trail. Backpacker Magazine did an informative round-up on Chocolate in the Camp Cooking column of their March 2013 edition. Navitas Sweet Cacao Nibs made their list of favorite "trail-friendly craving killers". Our Camu Powder shared the media spotlight this month, too. In its new March edition, Yoga Journal tagged the vitamin C-rich berry as a "Peak Performer" for providing a boost of energy and enhancing endurance and recovery.
