I have a confession to make this week.
While whipping up this sweet sensational recipe for the mango persimmon smoothie, I had a cooking disaster occur. And I mean, a disaster. My kitchen was left looking like a hurricane had just torn through, any and all ingredients were flung onto every surface available.
What happened? Well…. I didn’t put the lid on my blender properly. Sounds simple enough to do. But being the silly person I was (who knows where my head was at), I hit the start button and WHOOSH…. Mango and cranberries went everywhere.
After spending the better half of the next couple hours cleaning fruit from my roof and walls, I got a new batch of ingredients and tried again (making sure the lid was firmly on this time!). And success! So it is with pleasure, and a sore arm from all that scrubbing, that I bring to you my latest (and possibly greatest) smoothie recipe.
There are three things I love when it comes to cooking – easy to-do, simple, and incredibly tasty. I strive for all three of these when bringing you new recipes and this one is no different. In fact, you are only going to need three ingredients (yes, just three types of fruit) and five minutes. Seriously, does it get any better than this?
To make this smoothie, you will need to get some mango, persimmon fruit, and cranberries. While each of these fruits are impressive individually, together they are a powerhouse for nutrition. Consuming this drink will offer you a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, and antioxidants (plus many more).
Fun fact: A single mango stores more than 20 different minerals and vitamins. They are also fat free – bonus!
The mango persimmon smoothie is the perfect breakfast or pick me up snack because it’s:
As with all other smoothie recipes I make, I recommend consuming your drink soon after making it for the best tasting results. You can pop it in the fridge in an airtight jar/bottle, however I would not suggest storing it for more than 24 hours. Fresh is best!
This recipe will make 2 servings, but feel free to double the ingredients for more. Try sharing it with your children or when you have some friends over, it is sure to win them over. I always love sharing my healthy treats with others, you should try it too!
And there we have it. The super simple, super easy smoothie. Please let us know if you try it!
