One of my favorite fruits in the fall is persimmon! It is in season from September to December, so I purchased a bunch during my recent grocery run. Persimmons originated from Japan, and are orange fruits that look like a tomato. Persimmons are rich in vitamins A and C, and are a good source of fiber. It also contains high fructose, so it is a good ingredient for a smoothie.
I make a smoothie almost every morning, so I was excited to start experimenting with persimmons. I’ve tried a couple of recipes and my favorite so far is the persimmon/blueberry combination. Here is the recipe for this delicious smoothie:
- 2 persommions chopped
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (add more as needed)
- Optional: 1 tablespoon protein powder or chia seeds
