Why Add Persimmon To Smoothies?

Persimmonn might not be a popular ingredient that goes into smoothies, but it needs to be.

There are so many reasons why you should consider adding persimmon to your smoothies.

Some of them include:

  • Sweet Flavor: Persimmons add natural sweetness to your smoothies without the need for added sugars.
  • Rich in Fiber: Fiber enhances digestive health and helps maintain a feeling of fullness.
  • Vitamins and Minerals: The persimmon is packed with vitamins A and C, as well as potassium for overall well-being.
  • Texture Variety: Adds a unique texture, creating a more interesting and enjoyable smoothie experience.
  • Nutrient Diversity: Incorporates additional nutrients, contributing to a well-rounded diet.
  • Seasonal Appeal: Enjoy persimmons when in season for a fresh and local twist to your smoothies.
  • Versatile Pairing: It complements various flavors, blending well with a variety of fruits and greens.
  • It’s Aromatic: The persimmon has a very distinct flavor, which adds a very nice aromatic taste to your smoothies.

Substitutions, Variations & Recipe Tips

I bought around 20 persimmons last week and tested a bunch of different persimmon smoothie recipes.

I tested multiple variations of each persimmon smoothie I developed, including this persimmon banana smoothie.

If you feel like trying out some different ingredient combinations, below are some of the tastiest variations of this drink that I tested:

  • No Oats Smoothie: Swap the oats for a tablespoon of chia seeds.
  • Protein-Packed: Boost this persimmon breakfast smoothie’s protein content by adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder!
  • Peanut-Free: Swap the peanut butter for almond or cashew butter instead.
  • Antioxidant-Boost: Include antioxidants in this persimmon shake by adding 1/3 cup of berries of choice.
  • Boost The Tropical Flavor: Substitute the oat milk for coconut milk.
  • Make It Sweeter: If you like your smoothies sweet, adding honey, agave, or maple syrup is a wonderful way to quickly increase the sweetness of the smoothie, even after blending.

Recipe Tips:

  1. Core and dice the persimmon into small chunks. It can be quite difficult to break if added whole, even if it’s cored.
  2. Add the frozen banana slices first to your blender. Frozen fruit is harder to blend. You want them as close to the blender blades as possible. 
  3. Start At Low Speed: Let the blades slowly work through the frozen banana slices, then gradually increase the speed.
  4. Serve The Smoothie Immediately. Since the smoothie contains frozen fruit, it is best consumed as soon as it’s blended for the best flavor.
