Celebrate two of the most seasonal fruits with this unexpected and totally delicious vegan Apple and Persimmon Smoothie – A drink to Fall in love with!
Persimmon is one of the fruits I’m always looking forward to eat when it comes this time of the year. Sweet, mouth-watering and packed with vibrant aromatic flavours, this awesome fruit tastes similar to stone fruits and it’s sometimes forgotten. Whilst delicious on its own,whether ripe or firm, a smoothie is also a great way to enjoy it!
This deliciously sweet, insanely creamy and rich smoothie is made with 3 simple ingredients only: persimmon, apple and homemade almond milk. All you have to do is throw the ingredients into a powerful blender ( I use a Vitamix), and in less than 30 seconds you’ll have a vitamin-packed breakfast drink to kick off the day.

The best news about this vegan Apple and Persimmon smoothie is that it has no extra sugars added, because it’s naturally sweetened by the persimmon. You can also add a few mint leaves or a pinch of cinnamon. It perfectly complements this sweet apple + persimmon blend and gives that extra spicy fall kick.
This Apple and Persimmon smoothie is an amazing breakfast treat for busy fall/wintery days! A fantastic and indulgent drink, but absolutely healthy and 100% vegan!
