Persimmons are back in season!! 🙂 It’s a November fruit and I simply love the juicy, mushy and sweet Persimmons which have a pudding like texture. While writing about it I am drooling for Persimmons so I will pause and eat one right away. As soon as I saw this fruit in my local store I had to grab a handful and immediately decided to create a smoothie. Since, I have lots of pumpkin puree I wanted to combine both to see the outcome. With the addition of orange the smoothie got some extra flavor.
I tried with and without honey and I loved both the versions, though my husband insisted on adding honey since he likes his smoothie to be on a sweeter side. Adding almonds gave an extra kick to the smoothie and I purposefully used coconut milk to give it a thicker consistency. This smoothie is super healthy and delicious and a perfect after workout refresher. Persimmons Pumpkin Orange Smoothie will keep your tummy full for longer and help you stay in your healthy weight track this Thanksgiving. 🙂
