Sharon fruit smoothie…. sunshine

Sunshine Sharon …. and all things orange

With fruit smoothies I think I’d rather just eat the fruit but this Sharon fruit smoothie its a perfect way to enjoy a fruit that’s bit different. With some  lovely vegetable  and spice thrown in. YUM

Surely that’s got to be good for us?? Come on!! 

So what is Sharon Fruit?

Sharon fruit is the trade name of a variety of persimmon grown in Israel.

It is shaped like a tomato with thin, orange skin, a green stalk and orange flesh.

It is a ‘non-astringent’ variety of persimmon but still has a tannic taste.

Nutritious 

Sharon fruit are a fantastic source of fibre and vitamin C!

I didn’t know a huge amount about them but now I’ve just discovered they contain Betulin acid which is an anti cancer agent- what’s not to love.

I have Sharon fruit in lots of smoothies ( delicious with dark frozen cherries) and even better is most of the supermarkets do a pack of 3 for 99p…..

Ingredients

Serves 1

  • 1 large Carrot
  • 1 large Orange, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 a Persimmon (Sharon Fruit)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, either frozen or fresh.
  • 150ml Water (approx.)
  • Handful of ice

Preparation Method

  1. Put a handful of ice onto the blender.
  2. Wash the carrot and chop the end off but don’t bother peeling the carrot. Cut into small rounds and put into the blender/ smoothie maker / Nutribullet
  3. Add 1/2 a Sharon fruit cut into a couple of pieces and the Juice from 1 squeezed Orange.
  4. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, the ready chopped frozen ginger is brilliant. If using fresh, cut off a small piece, peel it and then either chop or grate.
  5. Add about 150ml of water but it’s really down to personal preference how creamy or not you want this. I like it more “juice” than “smoothie” so always start with at least 150ml.
  6. Blitz, Pour and Enjoy
