Since a friend in town has been dropping off so many persimmons, this smoothie seemed like a no brainer. It only takes a couple minutes to put together, and I love it for breakfast.
(2 servings) plus extra
- 1 Fuyu persimmon peeled and diced
- 1 apple peeled cored and sliced
- 1 cup non fat yogurt
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon maca root powder*
- 1 banana chopped and frozen*
- 1 teaspoon bee pollen
Blend all in a blender and give it a try. Sometimes I will add a few more pieces of frozen banana to chill it off more and make it thicker.
You can try your own smoothie combinations of course but this works for me. – get creative!
*The maca root benefits include a positive effect on hormone balance, energy levels, and a health booster.
*I freeze sliced up bananas in small deli containers
