This post was supposed to be a soup recipe but the weather changed here is San Diego. The soup recipe also had pears from Stemilt Growers in it but we went from cold and rainy to sunny and warm. I couldn’t bring myself to cook soup on such a nice day. I needed something cold and refreshing like this Cucumber Pear Juice.

I still love my Breville juicer that I got last year. If you’re got enough room to store a juicer in your home, then I highly recommend them. I enjoy fresh vegetable juices more than I thought I would. I always add a little bit of fruit or something on the sweet side like carrots to make the juice slightly more interesting. Fresh juice is so much better for you than what you buy in the stores. I’d rather drink juice where I know it’s 100% from fruit and vegetables not chemicals or sugar. If you like making your own juice try my Sweet Beet Juice or Fruity Green Juice recipes as well.

Persimmon Chai Smoothie

I received a blender from Vitamix as compensation for this post. All text and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support foodfashionandfun.com!

This recipe for Persimmon Chai Smoothie use uses only a few ingredients to create a healthy and delicious drink. Persimmons have a rather short season so take advantage and blend this seasonal smoothie. This drink is vegan and paleo/AIP.

Unsweetened ice tea is one of my favorite drinks. I keep it chilled in the refrigerator so that I can sip on it all day. I like the spiciness of Chai during the winter. It has tons of winter spices like cinnamon and star anise so it goes really well in this Persimmon Chai Smoothie alongside bananas, persimmons and maple syrup.

We drink a lot of smoothies around here so I keep frozen bananas in the freezer. If you’re anything like me than the prep is really simple for this smoothie. You just pull the frozen bananas out of the freezer and the cold tea from the fridge. All you really need is a ripe Fuyu persimmon and you’re good to go. This smoothie couldn’t be much easier.

I used my trusty Vitamix blender for this recipe. I’ve actually been using the blender for lot more than just smoothies. I’ve used in for my Slow Cooker Applesauce, Vegan Basil Pesto, Spicy Persimmon Sparkler and all the baby food I’ve been making. It’s a wonderful blender and highly recommend it.
