Persimmons are AMAZING!!! Never had one? Please give it a go! They are super sweet like candy with this ooey gooey texture to them. They look like cute lil tomatoes ☺️ They are mainly in season around this time and when you try them out you gotta make sure they’re super ripe before eating. An under ripe persimmon will have a bitter taste and will leave you with a weird mouth feel. You’ll know when it’s ready when the skin is really soft to where you can almost break the skin from pushing into it. Like when a tomato is getting soft and squishy. Gotta be patient though, these bad boys can take awhile to ripen…but good things come to those who wait, like this delicious smoothie!!!
Serves 1…because I like a massive smoothie for breakfast.
- 1 super ripe persimmon (you can eat the skin too)
- 4 frozen bananas
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1 date
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- about 1 cup or more water (desired consistency)
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
BLEND & ENJOY! 😋
