Mango Persimmon Smoothie

mpsNo those are not tomatoes. They are persimmons and they are delicious. They have a firm, thin skin and flesh similar to a peach. They taste like…persimmon.

I used a previous bounty of persimmons to make Apple Persimmon Bread. I was going to make more but we have a lot of baked goods so I decided to use them in a smoothie instead.


Mango Persimmon Smoothie
Pulp from two persimmons with the seeds removed
1/2 cup non-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup water

1. Put the ingredients in a blender and blend, starting on low and gradually increasing the speed until it reaches the desired consistency.
2. Serve!

It was so grey and dreary this morning. I really appreciated a sunny orange smoothie.

This smoothie would be fantastic with some ginger or vanilla in it.
