We are working our way through the persimmon glut, and are down to just two more 2-cup bags of persimmon puree in the freezer. Here is how we are going to finish them off.
Persimmon Mint Spinach Smoothie
2 cups frozen or thawed persimmons
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
2 cups homemade bone broth
1 scoop Green Vibrance
2 T flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon bee pollen
2 Tablespoons rice protein powder
2 T cacao nibs, optional (add a nice crunch)
1 cup fresh spinach or kale
Mix in blender. Serves 2.
Please note that I am a bit ambivalent about using isolated protein (protein powder). On the one hand, it adds protein to the meal. But on the other hand, food should be eaten whole, as nature intended. I am avoiding all sorts of foods for my little nursling at the moment, otherwise I think a big scoop of yogurt would be a better protein source in the smoothie.
