Let’s talk smoothies… in particular, the blueberry persimmon smoothie with banana and peanut butter! Healthy and downright delicious, this smoothie is bound to kick start your day in style.
You have probably seen all those adds about fancy juice blenders and the latest craze on juicing fruits and vegetables - I know I have. And it can get boring, like really boring. But juicing has been around for a long time and for a good reason – it’s fun, tastes good, and gives us a stack of nutrients essential for our everyday function.
I have been an avid juicer for some time and I really enjoy coming up with new combinations. It had been a while since I had posted some new juice recipes and thought it was time to rectify that. So, after I popped down the to the local shop, I set myself up in the kitchen, juiced like crazy, and produced some amazing combinations for you all to try.
Don’t believe me when I say amazing? You should. But just in case you’re not 100% convinced yet, let’s take a look at what makes this juice the perfect go to drink.
One of my most favorite parts about making smoothies is how utterly simple and easy it is to prepare. Because sometimes life gets in the way and we need a quick go-to recipe to keep us moving. Or, like me, you might have a lazy morning and decide cooking something is well beyond your capabilities that day. Well, I have you covered for whatever sort of day you are having because all you will need for this recipe is 5 minutes and 4 ingredients. That’s it!
Not only does this blueberry smoothie taste sensational, it is also topped with an array of quality nutrition from fresh sources. Let’s start with the most obvious, blueberries. Blueberries are a sensational source of antioxidants, vitamin K, and vitamin C. It also gives us a burst of colour in our drink, turning the smoothie a nice purple/blue.
We also add persimmon, banana, and peanut butter for a high source of dietary fibre, potassium, vitamin B, protein, and healthy fats. The dietary fiber helps you to keep feeling full while the rest of the essential vitamins and minerals fuel your body.
The blueberry persimmon smoothie is the perfect breakfast or snack because it’s:
To achieve the best taste possible, I would highly recommend serving this smoothie fresh and consuming it soon after. However, if you do need to store it, put it in an airtight container (or drinking bottle/cup) and store for up to 24 hours in the fridge or even in the freezer.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe. If you did, please be sure to check out my other latest smoothie recipe Mango Persimmon Smoothie with Cranberries.
