I always prefer a fresh fruit smoothie over the frozen fruit kind. This persimmon smoothie is no exception. With coconut milk, orange juice and ripe persimmon, this drink is earthy and sweet, spicy, and just slightly tart. Oh, and it is vegan!
1. Peel 3 persimmons. You can leave it on, I usually do for most meals using the persimmon –this is really just a texture preference for me.
2. Cut the persimmons into small pieces, removing any found seeds. We don’t want chunks of seeds in the smoothie.
3. Add the persimmon chunks, 1 cup of coconut milk and the juice of 2 oranges together and blend them in a blender or using an immersion blender.
4. Chill and serve.

My recipes are vegetarian, just like me. Some are even vegan. I like to keep things pretty simple, using just a few ingredients. So, you'll be cooking in no time.
If you're wondering if I am really stoned... well, I'll never tell.
