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.

Add in some  lovely vegetables  and spice – then you’ve got a very delicious smoothie 

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 

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…..

A delicious blend of Sharon fruit, carrot, orange and ginger

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • Put a handful of ice onto the blender.
  • 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
  • Add 1/2 a Sharon fruit cut into a couple of pieces and the Juice from 1 squeezed Orange.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Blitz, Pour and Enjoy
