What even IS a persimmon? This is what I asked myself, as I was placing the two different kinds into my basket (they were on sale and I'm adventurous for this blog okay?).
Turns out, yes, they are a fruit, and there are two main kinds
(pictured below). One, the smaller of the two, you can eat like a
peach, pealed, or bite right in. The other one (bigger in size)
needs to sit and ripen or else it apparently tastes way too
astringent. This second kind is the one that I used for the
smoothie, after I let them sit on the window sill for several days
until they were very squishy. (Here are some tips.)
I decided to go with a smoothie, because blending felt the safest route for a fruit I've never had before.
I looked at at few recipes and decided on some other
ingredients, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. Somewhere
between a pumpkin smoothie and an orange julius.
Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:
There are always so many things you can add into smoothies that blend in without being detected. Hemp seeds, coconut oil, protein mix. The world is your oyster, just keep it balanced and nutritious!
