Dragon Fruit Sorbet is a healthier dessert made with frozen raspberries, fresh dragon fruit, orange, lime and sugar that is vibrant and refreshing. This is the perfect dessert for a fun family night to watch the newly released How to Train Your Dragon 3.
The kids are on their first week of summer break and to kick it off we celebrated with a movie and fun dessert. The entire family has been eager for the release of How to Train Your Dragon 3 so it was an obvious choice for our special movie night. To keep with the dragon theme, I thought creating a recipe from dragon fruit would be exciting for the kids. Both the movie and the dragon fruit dessert ended up being a hit!
Our favorite characters are on a mission to free all the captured dragons and Hiccup is determined to find The Hidden World. A place free from humans and safe for the dragons. On their journey, our favorite dragon, Toothless, finds a love interest with a new female dragon character named Light Fury. Toothless attempting a mating dance with help from Hiccup will have your whole family laughing out loud! The movie explores friendships, new love and learning when to let go.
Walmart is the place to go to pick up the How To Train Your Dragon 3 Walmart Exclusive DVD Gift Set. The Walmart exclusive includes two Funko keychains of Toothless and Light Fury. Make sure to check out the fun How to Train Your Dragon apparel and toys on your Walmart shopping trip. We found a silky soft throw pillow featuring Hiccup and Toothless. My daughter also had to have the character toy Snotlout Jorgenson since he is one of the funniest characters on the series with the dragon Hookfang.

Dragon Fruit Sorbet
Dragon Fruit Sorbet is sweet and flavorful with a nice punch of lime to balance all the sweetness. This sorbet is smooth and colorful and you can taste all the natural fruit inside. Perfect for a warm day.
Dragon fruit comes from a flowering cactus species. You can find two common species of this tropical fruit in the grocery. You may find white flesh with pink skin or pink flesh with pink skin. The pink flesh with pink skin is what I used for the recipe today and it is usually labeled as a Red Dragon Fruit. I love to use the pink fleshed dragon fruit because the color is so vibrant and beautiful. The white can also be used for this recipe and the color of your sorbet with will be a light pink.
Dragon fruit is sweet and mild. Tastes much like a kiwi but with a more subtle flavor. This fruit is delicious on its own or in a recipe.
Dragon fruit is a low calorie fruit that is rich in antioxidants. Great addition to a healthy diet.
How to Prep
Preparing the dragon to eat is simple. Just slice down the middle lengthwise and scoop out the inside flesh using a spoon. You can either dice and freeze the fruit or eat it as is. Try adding it to a fruit salad for an interesting twist.
What is Sorbet?
Sorbet is a frozen fruit puree made with a sweetener. Sorbet can easily be made without an ice cream maker. Just blend some frozen fruit, sugar and juice. Then, add it to a 1.5 quart insulated ice cream tub to store and freeze. The sugar to liquid ratio is how you get that great sorbet texture so any fruit can be used for sorbet.
Left the sorbet in the freezer for a few weeks and it formed some ice? Don’t toss it! This mixture creates the perfect smoothie. Just add the sorbet to a blender with a banana and some water. Blend until smooth and serve.
