Persimmon Banana Smoothie

I love the change of seasons, because we get a change in produce.  We've been eating Persimmons the last few weeks, and have been quite enjoying them.  I usually just peel them and pop them in my mouth, but they work really great in smoothies, too, and that's usually how I can get my kids to eat them.

Persimmon Banana Smoothie
2 ripened fuyu persimmons
1 banana
1 cup almond milk or other nondairy milk
6-8 ice cubes (or you could add in 1 cup of frozen pineapple, instead of the ice cubes)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

  5. I like to freeze my persimmons, and use those instead of ice cubes. The texture is much thicker, almost like a frothy ice cream!
