Sunrise Smoothie

Persimmons start popping up at the farmer's market and grocery store this time of year. They are delicate and sweet in flavour. Fuyu persimmons (short and squat like a tomato) can be eaten when they are still firm. Hachiya persimmons, on the other hand, must be eaten when they feel like a water-balloon in your hands. If not, they will taste bitter and soapy. Either variety is ideal for this smoothie. Should you use the firmer kind, remember to balance it out with ingredients that will make the drink just as creamy - perhaps 1/4 of an avocado. 

- 1 very ripe persimmon 
- 1 very ripe frozen banana
- 1/2 a mango 
- small chunk of grated ginger 
- 1/2 scoop any vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 tbs psyllium husk 
- 1/4 avocado *optional
- stevia to taste 
- water 
- lots of ice 

Blend everything together. Voila!
