Persimmon and goji berry smoothie

 

Persimmon smoothie  1 of 1 2

SO MUCH fall produce to be excited about! From the squash everything to the apple varieties, it’s definitely a diverse group of delicious options. My very favorite: the persimmon. I didn’t have my first persimmon until we were living in Valdosta, and I bought one on a whim. At first I was like “how do I eat this thing?” and then decided to bite into it like an apple. (Thankfully the skin did prove to be edible.)

I was blown away. To me, the taste is almost like a peach/apple hybrid, with a soft texture, and tiny flecks throughout (which remind me of vanilla bean). I don’t know a ton about persimmons, except that they taste amazing, and decided to pair one with one of my favorite antioxidant-pumped superfoods (goji berries!) for a unique and refreshing smoothie combo.
