TROPICAL SMOOTHIE 🌴🍊🌴

Hello my Dearest Foodies,

Happy Monday! How do you feel about delicious PERSIMMON SOOTHE with Quinoa Granola? Full of nutrients that will give you a boost in the morning or you can take it with you while on the go!!!

Persimmons are in season now, and even if they are not growing in Canada, they are sweet and juicy. Besides, the price is right too, lol. I bought the whole basket for less than $5 CAN, so I will be enjoying this smoothie everyday this week. Tangerines are in season now to and boy they are so yummy. Besides I bought dragon fruit too, for a very good price!!! Altough we only get the one with white flesh. Oh well.

Anyway, we just got new pile of snow over the weekend and the temperature is -10C here right now, so little bit of Tropical mood helps to cope with the cold winter we are having.

I wish you a wonderful sunny week 🌴😍🌴

Such a lovely delicious looking treat for foodies like myself

Thank you so much 🌴😊🌴

Thank you so much my Dear, I really appreciate it 😍

That does look super delicious, although I must be honest I am not sure I have ever had a persimmon.

Thank you so much @pennsif, I ma glad you like it................I wish I could send it to you 😊

I must see if I can find a persimmon in a supermarket to try.

I hope you will, they're in season now 😊

so beautiful and bright in color and also delicious! Really fresh :)

Thank you so much Sweetie, I am glad you like it 🌴🍊🌴

I never thought of persimmons in a smoothie. Yum!
Lovely photos as usual.

They make smoothies very rich, that's why I love them.........instead of banana, just for change. Thank you so much, I am happy you like it 🌴🍊🌴

Owwoo vety attractive.

Thank you so much 😊

Oooooo! I LOVE persimmons! It grows in our area, although not successfully on our homestead. Can't say the same about the dragon fruit though. Never seen it in SA. I love that orange and pink colour. And of course your recipe, as always. Delicious and inspiring Lena

Hello Dear Tracey! Thank you so much for visiting and I am happy you like it. I believe that Dragon fruit mostly comes from central America, Caribbean, south parts of Asia, Australia and subtropical regions, which means it should be somewhere in Africa.........based on Google, lol. 🌴🍊🌴

It's surprised me the exotic types of fruit that has made its way to our African shores in the recent years....so here's hoping for Dragon fruit!

I am sure it will 😍

What a colorful and nutritious smoothie! And the presentation is superb, as always!!! 😍😍

We do not grow persimmon here. I even doubt if I have tried one before. Maybe I did once, from a friend from Australia. And it is yummy. The sweetness cannot be compared with any tropical fruit. Hahaha! 😊

Thank you for sharing this recipe, Lena. I'll make one but with a different fruit. 😉

Thank you so much Sweetie, I am very happy you like it! I guess you can make this smoothie with mango if you don't have persimmons 🌴🥭🌴

Oh yes. Mango smoothie would be perfect! 😍

So lovely Lena! I had some truly delicious persimmons from the market about a month or so ago. I'll have to get my hands on some more as this sounds like the perfect escape from winter. Though it's nowhere near as cold here as it is up there. Brrr!

Oh yes, we are way north from you Katie, lol. But you can use some escape anyway, if you can get some persimmons. Thank you so much for stopping by 🌴😊🌴

Absolutely beautiful as always 💚
