Persimmon Spice Smoothie

Posted by on Jan 2, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I taste something I feel pure pleasure.  That is how I felt when I tasted this smoothie.  Oh my.

The combination of fuyu persimmons with ginger and other spices is just beautiful.  I first whipped this up on a Sunday morning before a spinning workout, so added some hemp protein to get me through it.  However, I’ve also made this with hemp seeds and flax seeds and it’s just as good.  

You’ll want to hurry up and make this before persimmons are out of season!
