Remember when food was actually just for eating? We know, it feels like a distant memory! Now, you can stand on a chair in a cafe without anyone even batting an eyelid — because, what’s point of ordering food if not to take an Instagram snap of it?
But all trends fade eventually and foodstagramming is no exception. Sure, we’ll probably never completely stop taking photos of our pancakes — but now you’re just as likely to find a snap of a photogenic drink on your feed!
Yep, we’re calling it: drinkstagramming is right up there with foodstagramming. And with the rise of rainbow lattes, unicorn frappuccinos, and OTT milkshakes, there’s no shortage of subject matter. But the latest drink trend may be the most Insta-worthy of them all — and it’s actually healthy!
Introducing, the Dragon Milk Smoothie
Isn’t it beautiful? If you think it looks like a drinkable Pitaya bowl, you’re not far off — dragonfruit is the starring ingredient in both. The exotic fruit gives the smoothie a natural fuschia hue, while coconut milk makes it nice and creamy. It’s basically just like Starbucks’ Dragon Frappuccino, but without all the sugar and cream!
The Dragon Milk smoothie is a new addition at The Good Sort, a vegan cafe in New York City. The cafe is known for its other colorful and oh-so-pretty drinks, like the Superfood Rainbow Iced Latte.
According to the owners, the drink is low in calories, high in fiber and loaded with health-boosting antioxidants. Perfect for when you want to quench your summer thirst with something that’s actually good for you! For those of you on the West coast, you can also get your hands on an Insta-worthy dragonfruit smoothie at Backyard Bowls in Santa Barbara and LA.
