Vegan Persimmon Smoothie Recipe – Healthy, creamy, and a flavorful vegan smoothie with persimmons (kaki), banana, almond milk, and cinnamon. A perfect winter smoothie with seasonal persimmons.
What is Persimmon Smoothie?
It is a simple, delicious, and thick vegan beverage made with seasonal persimmons, ripe banana, and flavored with cinnamon and vanilla. It is a perfect and easy way to use the persimmons when they are in the markets.
If your banana and persimmon are ripe enough, you really don’t need any extra sugar. I have not added any sweetener.
Persimmons: Any kind of persimmons can be used but they should be ripe. Overripe persimmons and frozen persimmon would work well.
Banana: Banana makes the smoothie thick and sweet. Make sure the banana is ripe enough. If it is not ripe enough, you may need to add additional sweeteners such as maple syrup or sugar to the smoothie.
Almond Milk: It can be swapped with any plant-based milk. You could also add some plant-based yogurt.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon goes well with persimmons. Do not skip it.
It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
If you want to store it for longer, freeze it for a few months.
Flax seeds, nuts, or nut butter can be added for extra flavor and nutrition.
A bit of chocolate goes well with this smoothie.
If you are not vegan, feel free to use dairy.
Plant-based yogurt can also be added.
Step by step instructions:
Wash persimmons and remove the leaves. The peel is very thin and edible so you don’t need to peel them.
Chop the persimmons into slices.
Combine all the ingredients in a blender jar and blend everything until smooth.
Pour into serving glasses and sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon powder on the top. Serve!
