Galaxy inverted smoothie

Starfruit doesn't look like stars when it's blended into a smoothie. But with the addition of refreshing dragonfruit, the smoothie can be an inverse of the sky, where the stars are the little black flecks of the dragonfruit and the sky is a bright and happy white. Perhaps this will be the choice of refreshment for your next sci-fi movie night.


2 medium Florida starfruit (larger than the palm of your hand)
1 dragonfruit
1/4 cup fresh coconut, shredded
1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt

Yield: 1 serving
Prep time: 5 minutes

How to cut starfruit


1. Slice the ends off the starfruit and discard them. Slice 2 star-shaped slices for garnish. Slice the remainder into thick stars. Add to a blender or food processor. Purée, then strain.
2. Cut the dragonfruit in half. Scoop out the white speckled insides.
3. In a blender or food processor, add the remaining ingredients plus the strained starfruit puree. Pulse until relatively smooth.
4. Pour into serving glasses; top with starfruit slices. Serve immediately.
