Coconut Persimmon Smoothie

A coconut persimmon smoothie recipe that tastes like a combination of a creamsicle and pina colada in smoothie form.

Happy Friday Wednesday! How great is it that it’s basically Friday for most people? If you’re already off, I’m jealous. Besides a full day of work, I somehow need to fit in the time to make 3 side dishes for tomorrow, get in a light run, get my allergy shots and make some scones that I haven’t been able to get off my mind. Ok, the scones may not be imperative, but I really want to make them and they’d be perfect for Thanksgiving anyway. I don’t think anyone will be upset if there’s another dessert on the table.

Let’s get to the food!
 

 

Breakfast:

You’ve seen this banana cornbread bake before and you’ll probably see it again because it’s my favorite breakfast bake. Easy, only a handful of ingredients and microwavable. I love these on mornings when oats or yogurt just aren’t cutting it. The nasty looking brown stuff on top is almond butter from the bottom of the jar. No matter how well I stir it, I’m always left with dried out, clumpy “butter” at the end.

Lunch:

Apple, cheddar and black bean panini. Odd? Yes. Tasty? You betcha. Apples, carrots and hummus on the side with some dark chocolate covered pretzels. <—one of my absolute favorites from TJ’s.

Snack:

Persimmon coconut smoothie. It tasted like a creamsicle + pina colada. Soooo good. And so pretty.

Dinner:

A bed of collard greens with butternut squash apple bake on top. I can’t get enough of collard greens lately. I sautéed two huge bunches of them and we polished it all off. That’s a lot of vitamin C and fiber!

We also polished off the apple pie from Sunday for dessert.
