Persimmon Pineapple Protein Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 squash

  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp pea protein
  • 1 cup water

Originally native to China, persimmons are now grown all over the world. Known as “nature’s candy,” persimmons have a sweet, almost honey-like flavor, and are full of vitamin C (one little fruit has almost 80 percent of your recommended daily allowance). Flax is one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world, and flaxseeds are a rich source of Omega-3s. Pea protein rounds out this sweet, immune-boosting smoothie, blending seamlessly while providing plant-based protein that our bodies need to keep going from morning till night.
