Persimmons. This month I received some in my veggie/fruit coop box and didn't know what to do! Last year I made a bundt cake that was good but not my favorite. This year my persimmons sat on my counter waiting. They do make great fall decorations! These cute little orange fruits with a star center are so new to me I just don't know how to eat them. Some like their taste plain like apple slices but we're not yet accustomed to their taste.
When my neighbor sent me her recipe for persimmon milkshakes I was excited to try it out. This shake is sweet and light with a very distinct cinnamon flavor that reminds me of Christmas. Plus, it is low in calories without added sugar. Mmmm!
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tray of ice (12 cubes)
2 persimmons, quartered
dash of nutmeg
big pinch of cinnamon
add sugar if your banana is not sweet
Blend all ingredients until frothy and serve immediately.
Who Dished it first? My neighbor, the very one who introduced me to persimmons.
