Today I’m doing a double workout day – bar method and a run – so wanted a pre-workout smoothie to power through. Persimmons are one of my favorite fruits, and while they are perfect to eat raw, they also taste grate blended up in a smoothie. They are chalk full of fiber and vitamins so in addition to tasting delicious they are a sweet treat for the body too. This simple smoothie has only six ingredients and you can make it quickly for morning fuel on the go.
1. 1 cup vanilla soymilk (almond milk would probably work well too)
2. 1 fuyu persimmon, sliced
3. 1 medjool date, chopped
4. 5 walnuts
5. Chia seeds- about 1 tbsp
6. dash of cinammon
Directions: Put all ingredients in blender and blend until desired consistency (I like mine to still be a little chunky so don’t blend until perfectly smooth).
