My New Favorite Fruit
What joy persimmons have given me over the last few days. Until last week,I had never tasted a persimmon. After my first taste, I was totally hooked. This beautiful tropical fruit is just a perfect way to start my day.
After a 60 minute run this morning, I was ready for another smoothie.
4 persimmons, peeled
1 lime, green rind removed
small chunk of ginger
1 orange, orange rind removed
In a Vita Mix, blend until creamy. You may need to add a touch of water to get fruit to puree. Add a 2 inch chunk of fresh aloe vera and puree. You have now created liquid sunshine!! Sip slowly and enjoy your day!!
Here are a few other pictures from my early morning run.
