Pitaya aka dragonfruit is a fruit of the cactus species that was discovered centuries ago in Central America. Now you can find the fruit in many countries across the world, but it is totally underused in the US! This superfruit is full of antioxidants, fiber, Magnesium and Vitamin B’s.
You may not find dragonfruit in your grocery store, so these Pitaya Plus smoothie packs make things super easy. These superfruit smoothie packs are 100% raw, usda organic, non gmo verified pitaya. No sugar is added to these packs and they are vegan, kosher, gluten and dairy free!
I was sent a few of these smoothie packs, but as soon as I heard about them I knew I wanted to post.
You guys know I’m all about social good, right?
I added Pitaya Plus to my list of 150+ social good and fair trade companies. Pitaya’s goal is to create new employment opportunities in areas where they are most needed. Pitaya Plus hires single mothers to help process the fruit, in an effort to make a positive impact in the communities in which they operate. They pay them above minimum wage, and help contribute to their social security. Pitaya Plus works directly with the farmers and producers to ensure they have proper working conditions.
Pitaya Plus is commited to bringing you products in a socially, environmentally responsible and sustainable way. I love supporting brands that commit to these causes. You can purchase Pitaya Plus here! They are also available in Sprouts stores nationwide.
